Fuel mix disclosure
We only provide electricity that has been
generated by the force of the wind, the power
of water and the rays of the sun.
Renewable does not mean clean
Renewable energy is not always what it seems. It is often presented as
entirely positive. However, ‘renewable’ is not the same thing as energy
from non-polluting, sustainable or carbon neutral sources.
In fact, many energy providers use ‘renewable’ to describe energy from
‘dirty’ sources including biomass, which involves burning wood or waste
and releasing both solid carbon particles and greenhouse gases like
carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere.
While none of the ‘renewable’ energy providers have been deceitful
(necessarily), some are not entirely clear about their sources. This means
making informed decisions can be harder for customers. Check out our blog
post on renewable energy’s dirty secret to find out more and to see what
we’re doing to make the whole of the energy industry clearer (and cleaner).
If you’re thinking of switching, its not enough to check the breakdown of a
potential provider’s fuel mix to see how “green” they are. You need to know
if they own or are contracted to buy power from fossil fuel generators.
No environmental impact
Our energy has no adverse impact on the environment, with no carbon
emissions, and no high level radioactive waste emissions. None.
