A Guide to Ecotricity
Ecotricity claims to be the world’s first Green Electricity company since founded in 1995. They generate around 35% - 40% of their power through their windmills and buy the rest from other renewable energy suppliers. They currently supply 25,000 businesses and in 2021, they helped their customers collectively save 243,559 tonnes of CO2.
In 2010, they pioneered green gas to improve their eco-credentials. Customer bills go to building new green electricity and gas sources, called Bills into Mills. And with no shareholders, they can invest more each year per customer on new sources of Green Energy than any other energy company in Britain.
Beyond the tariffs listed below, they can help your business set up new connections (done in around one month) and help you set up on-site wind energy. They will build, own, operate and maintain the turbines on your site, making it even easier to go green.
