The fight against climate change is global. It’s one which requires all nations to work collaboratively to build a low-carbon future.
As one of the oldest renewable power companies in the UK, Good Energy is on this journey for the long run. We were founded with a purpose to empower individuals to tackle climate change head-on. And many of our customers recognise that switching to a clean power company is one of the biggest things they can do in this fight.
However, with the way energy systems work, we can only directly impact what happens in the UK. We occasionally are asked who the companies are that do what we do in other countries. Earth Day is a great opportunity to establish these partnerships and callout some great companies pushing for a clean energy transition in their nation.
There are hundreds of millions of people around the world who share in our vision and want an energy supplier who truly cares about sustainability. With that in mind, here are our recommendations for a few of them:
United States – Arcadia Power
We wholeheartedly agree with Arcadia’s belief that choosing clean energy should not be complicated. Their community driven ethos has helped feed 680,000 megawatt hours of renewable electricity onto the US grid.
