You can find out more about Good Energy on the supplier's website.
Good Energy renewable energy
The supplier purchases power via more than 1,600 producers across the UK who utilise hydro, solar, wave and wind methods. Good Energy ensures it feeds back enough 100% renewable electricity into the National Grid to cover the amount used by each of its customers.
Good Energy also offers carbon neutral gas, of which 10% is renewable biogas generated from organic matter. The supplier also offsets the emissions from the gas you use by supporting projects that improve access to clean, green energy around the world.
Good Energy Green Accreditation
All of Good Energy's tariffs achieved Gold Standard Green Accreditation under Uswitch's newly launched accreditation scheme in 2021. SVT Electricity, Good to Fix Electricity, SVT Gas and Good to Fix Gas are accredited as Gold level Green thanks to the supplier's commitment to sourcing and supplying renewable energy.
Is Good Energy exempt from the price cap?
Good Energy was granted a permanent exemption from the price cap because it goes above and beyond when it comes to generating and supplying renewable energy to customers. This means that it can charge more than the price cap unit rate on its SVT as long as customers have actively chosen to be on it.
Is Good Energy going bust?
