Do you know where your energy comes from?
Do you know where your energy comes from when you turn on the light?
The UK imports coal from Russia, gas from Norway and uranium from Kazakhstan - this costs lots of money and it means we need other countries for our energy.
It means people in the future will have to deal with waste and pollution.
You can choose to use energy from the sun, wind and rain instead of from coal, gas and nuclear.
The plugs in your home get electricity from the National Grid and this won’t change; what Good Energy want to change is where that electricity comes from.
Every bit of electricity that our customers use is matched with the same amount of renewable electricity going into the grid.
Energy that's harvested from nature by people who care about the planet.
Did you know that on average our customers live 3.86 miles* away from our nearest renewable generator? That means that our customers are getting their power from renewable sources right here in the UK, not from fossil fuels being imported from halfway around the world.
* How did we work it out?
To calculate the average distance a Good Energy customer lives from our nearest renewable generator, we first took all of our customer postcodes and all of our generator postcodes (Good Energy purchases electricity from 1,500 renewable generators up and down the country). We then calculated the distance from each of our customers to their nearest generator. Taking the average of all these distances gave us our headline figure. This figure is correct as of 17/03/2017.
