What is a green energy tariff?

The majority of plans that are labelled as green promise at least 100% renewably sourced electricity. However, some provide much more sometimes including 10% renewably sourced gas, carbon offsetting and more.

Plans with green electricity are often derived from solar, wind or hydro energy. Green gas is usually sourced from biomethane.

Green energy plans used to come at a premium but these days, green plans from small, independent suppliers are often the cheapest energy deals.

Find out which suppliers offer green energy tariffs.
