We supply you through the National Grid, which is like a dirty pond of electricity.
When you switch to us, we match all the electricity you use over a year with electricity sourced purely from renewables. It’s like pouring fresh water into that pond. Slowly but surely we’ll clean things up.
We believe the UK can be powered purely by renewables. That's why we have always sourced our electricity from certified renewable sources like solar, wind, hydro and biofuel.
And now, 6% of our Green Gas comes from biomethane: gas produced from organic matter – like manure and sewage – here in the UK.
To make it totally carbon neutral, emissions from the gas our customers use will be neutralised through verified carbon-reduction schemes.
Encouraging independent energy generation
We buy our 100% renewable electricity from over 1,000 independent generators and businesses across the UK, from local farmers to sustainable businesses including Mackie’s ice cream, Wyke Farms dairy and National Trust.
Investing in renewable technology
As well as supporting our growing community of independent generators, we’re developing our own wind and solar farms to help meet increasing customer demand for 100% renewable electricity. Good Energy has developed over 150MW of renewable energy sites, to support our continued commitment for 100% renewable energy.
We can keep our prices much more stable for our customers because we generate our own power.
Good Energy has sold four further solar sites – this has enabled us to reinvest in new generation capacity. The sites – totalling more than 90MW – were in South Wales, Dorset, Norfolk and Kent. The new owners of these sites are legally required to continue to deliver the community and environmental commitments set up by Good Energy.
Investment in other generation projects
In May 2014, Good Energy announced its first investment in a tidal energy project, the Tidal Lagoon in Swansea Bay, Wales. The planned Swansea Bay project is forecast to deliver renewable power to more than 155,000 homes in the Swansea area. Good Energy has invested in the planned project to further diversify its sources of renewable energy.
