Switch to a green energy tariff

Published: 8 Dec 2021

Renewable energy could supply four-fifths of the world’s electricity by 2050.

In 2020, around 43% of the UK’s electricity came from renewable sources.  

By swapping to a green energy tariff, you will be showing the big energy companies that their customers want more renewables. 

The Energy Saving Trust have lots of good information available.  

The Big Clean Switch is a great place to go to for information and advice on choosing green tariffs and we love this way of explaining why switching is a good idea… 

Picture the National Grid like a bucket full of water. When you’re on a renewable tariff, your supplier promises to match the amount you take out of the bucket by putting the same amount of clean water in. The more clean water that goes into the bucket (and the less dirty water), the cleaner the bucket, and therefore the Grid, gets.”
