Fuel Mix Disclosure

Our 100% clean energy mix

Our fuel mix is 100% clean energy. We only provide electricity which is generated by the force of the wind, the power of water and the rays of the sun. This fuel mix information is provided to meet the Electricity Licence Condition 21 and covers the period between the 1 April 2019 and 31 March 2020.

Squeaky Clean Energy UK average for comparison
Coal 0.0% 6.3%
Natural Gas 0.2% 72.0%
Nuclear 0.0% 8.2%
Renewables 99.7% 8.3%
Other 0.0% 5.2%
TOTAL 100.0% 100.0%

Note: Squeaky only contracts with clean energy generators and 100% of the volume that it supplied in 19/20 was from these contracts. In terms of our fuel mix disclosure, we did not hold enough REGOs in our account on 1 July 2020. This was due to a reporting error and we have since retired extra REGOs to make up the difference and to adjust our energy mix to achieve a position of 100% clean energy supply.

Renewable doesn’t mean clean

But wait a moment! Renewable is not always what it seems.

Contrary to popular belief renewable energy doesn’t mean energy from sources which are non-polluting, sustainable or carbon neutral. 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.

If you’re thinking of switching, make sure you check the breakdown of their fuel mix to see how “green” they really are.

While none of the ‘renewable’ energy providers have been deceitful (necessarily), there’s a muddying of the waters which means making informed decisions is harder for consumers. 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).

No environmental impact

Our energy has no adverse impact on the environment, with no carbon emissions, and no high level radioactive waste emissions. None.

Squeaky Clean Energy UK average for comparison
Carbon emissions (g/kWh) 0 198
High level radioactive waste emissions (g/kWh) 0 0.007

The national average, for comparison, of fuel mix emits 198 g of Carbon per kWh and 0.007 g per kWh of high level of radioactive waste. Not what we should be adding into the air we breathe!
