Gas and Electricity Guide

Do you want to know more about green energy?  Fair enough.  Energy is one of the biggest household expenses, AND a major contributor to pollution levels.  By switching to green energy, you’ll not only help prevent climate change, you may also save yourself hundreds of pounds.

What is green energy?

Green energy is produced by methods that are environmentally friendly.  In particular, green energy is renewable and non-polluting.  By choosing to power your home with green energy, you will reduce the amount of carbon that is emitted into the environment.

You can sign up for a green energy tariff with any of a number of UK energy suppliers, but there are different types of green tariff.  You can choose a green energy tariff which will provide you with 100% renewable electricity, which will probably be generated by windpower or hydroelectric power.  Alternatively, you may select a green energy tariff that offsets the amount of energy you consume by providing the national grid with an equivalent amount of renewable energy.  Otherwise, you can choose a green energy tariff that will make contributions to environmental projects on your behalf.  energyhelpline.com’s comparison service will help you find the right green energy tariff for you.
