Sourcing a Renewable Energy Supplier

renewable energy suppliers

THINK GLOBAL, ACT LOCAL. This slogan was splashed across the entrance of GreenFest organised by villagers of Hampstead Norreys and Compton on September 7th.

This promises to be the first of many events dedicated to combating climate change and promoting sustainable living in our local area.

Given the tide of bad news concerning the worsening state of the environment which is gathering speed, there are many things we can all do to help. So what might we consider? Perhaps one way is to ensure we get our energy from a sustainable source, that uses sun, wind, and water to generate power. Energy from fossil fuels intensifies levels of CO2 that are warming the atmosphere. Among a clutch of life-style changes that we can all make, ‘the biggest bang for your bucks’ comes from adopting renewable energy.

There are now a range of ‘GREEN’ energy providers, all competing for your business, and many offering financial incentives if you switch. Here are some of the greenest options:

BULB – 100% green energy. They have a refer a friend incentive.

ECOTRICITY – 100% green energy. They invest the money from your bills into new sources of green energy. They also support anti-fracking and are working towards becoming a carbon neutral business by 2025. (0808 123 0123)

GOOD ENERGY – Invests in renewable infrastructure. Offering £50 to switch. (0808 254 0004)

OCTOPUS ENERGY –  Cheaper, but not 100% green.
