1. Our electricity is 100% renewable

Generated from sun, wind, water and biogeneration by our growing community of over 2,000 independent renewable generators.

Switching to renewable power is one of the easiest ways you can help tackle climate change.

How our electricity compares with the UK fuel mix

0g CO2 p/kWh

Our 100% renewable fuel mix

  • 34% = Wind
  • 46% = Biogeneration
  • 14% = Solar
  • 6% = Hydro

*Fuel mix disclosure period April 2022-March 2023. 0g CO2 refers to generator emissions in the operational phase. UK Fuel Mix & carbon intensity data source: DESNZ, Fuel Mix Disclosure Data Table. All energy suppliers are required to provide information on their fuel mix.

UK average fuel mix

  • 38.5% = Gas
  • 38.7% = Renewables
  • 16.1% = Nuclear
  • 3.8% = Coal
  • 2.9% = Other

2. Our gas is carbon neutral

Most of the homes in the UK are heated by gas. To reduce our impact, 10% of our gas is renewable biogas, generated from organic matter like food and farm waste here in Britain. We offset the emissions from all of the gas we purchase by investing in Gold Standard projects with ClimateCare.

We invest in gold standard projects with Climate Care to offset all of our gas emissions.

3. We’re supporting over 2,000 renewable generators

We source our electricity from our community of over 2000 independent renewable generators. These are climate heroes with inspiring stories about changing the world for the better.

We also support tens of thousands of people to generate their own clean power in their home or business, as Britain’s largest voluntary Feed-in Tariff (FIT) administrator. And we have our own export tariff, Solar Savings, which pays customers a leading rate for the power they export to the grid.

4. We never greenwash

We buy enough 100% renewable electricity over a year directly from renewable generators to cover what you use. We also pay our generator community fairly for the power they produce, supporting them to grow their assets and invest in more renewable generation.

We forecast what customers will use against what our renewable generators will produce to match it in real time as closely as possible. This model actively supports the growth of renewables. 
We don’t just buy wholesale energy (which comes from a mix of sources, including fossil fuels), then buy renewable certificates separately. This model, used by lots of suppliers claiming to be green, doesn’t provide as much support for renewable energy.

5. Our tariffs have been independently accredited as some of the greenest on the market 

Good Energy is the only energy supplier to have received the Which? Eco Provider for Energy accreditation for the past three years running. Our tariffs have also been accredited as Uswitch Green Tariff Gold Standard since the scheme launched in 2019. We are recommended as a Best Buy for Energy by Ethical Consumer, and we’ve been recommended as a green energy supplier by Friends of the Earth.

6. We make homes and businesses greener by installing green tech 

We install useful clean tech like heat pumps, solar panels and batteries.

This helps people to reduce their reliance on polluting fossil fuels and make their homes and businesses more energy self sufficient.

7. We’re providing the next generation with a platform 

Today’s youngest generations will be impacted the most by the climate crisis. So we believe they should have a say in what’s being done to tackle it.

In 2021 we set up our Good Future Board, which is made up of 5 young people aged 13-18, who hold us to account on our promise to protect their future.

In their three years on the board, they’ve attended our AGM, and spoken at events including Conference of Youth, which takes place just before the COP climate crisis conference.

8. We’ve been driving green energy policy for 25 years  

We’ve always been committed to making it easier to use and generate renewable energy. Some of our achievements include:  

  • Launching HomeGen, a groundbreaking service that laid the foundations for the government’s Feed-in Tariff. 
  • Expanding Britain’s first commercial wind farm, building another one and developing eight solar farms.  
  • Campaigning against policies that make adopting clean energy more difficult, including high VAT on solar panels. 
  • Producing high-quality research, including our Renewable Nation report. Developed with Energy Systems Catapult, it modelled future energy scenarios to show that net zero can be achieved using renewable energy.  
  • Standing up for energy market reforms that will support consumers and generators, including calling for more transparency over how green tariffs are sold. 

9. We’re investing in making Britain’s transport greener 

Zapmap, the leading app for planning and paying for EV charging on the go, is a subsidiary of Good Energy.
