25 years of Good Energy

Good Energy was founded 25 years ago to give people a way to be part of a practical solution to climate change.

Now, as well as supplying truly renewable energy, we install solar panels, home batteries and heat pumps and we pay homes and businesses for the green power they export to the grid.

Our mission? To make it simple for everyone to generate, share, store, use and travel by clean power.

Our founding story

Good Energy started out back in 1999 as one of the first (and only) 100% renewable electricity companies. Read about how Good Energy was set up by our founder, Juliet Davenport, and key milestones in our history.

What makes us different?

Leaving fossil fuels behind and supporting renewable energy is essential to reducing Britain’s carbon emissions. We’re dedicated to providing meaningful ways to do that.

  • We supply 100% renewable electricity, bought directly from over 2000 renewable generators in Britain.
  • We’re the largest voluntary administrator of the Feed in Tariff and we pay home-generators for the power they export through our export tariff.
  • We install heat pumps because they are an essential tool for helping homes get off gas and oil.
  • We install solar panels and batteries to help you to generate your own renewable electricity, rather than buy ours.

Our commitment to being genuinely green has been recognised by the likes of Friends of the Earth, Which? and Ethical Consumer.
