Energy supplier

The Co-operative Energy

The Co-operative is a wide-ranging business owned by its customers. It has only entered the energy market in 2011 having looked at energy for some time, believing that the public have been poorly served. The Co-operative's members guide them on how the organisation should behave as an ethical business, a responsible citizen and a committed campaigner. They support renewable energy and are planning to ensure that, by April 2012, the carbon content of their electricity is less than half the national average. They avoid coal but they do support nuclear power, thinking that a multi-pronged approach is needed if the UK is to meet its climate change targets in the medium term.

Ebico

Ebico's strongest feature is that it's the only not-for-profit energy supplier in the UK. Renewable energy production is not a core part of their offering but they have an interesting tariff called Equiclimate. It is an innovative, carbon offsetting service for customers who want to redress the effects on the environment of their own energy use. EquiClimate is unique in using the new Europe-wide market in CO2 allowances to offset the emissions from customers’ homes.

Ecotricity

All the green electricity in Ecotricity's "New Energy" tariff comes from their own windmills but is topped up with ‘brown’ electricity which they buy from the wholesale market. Customers on the "New Energy Plus" tariff have their top-up from another producer's green electricity making it a 100% renewable supply. Ecotricity's main selling point is that - by percentage of turnover - they are the biggest investor in new renewable productive capacity within the UK.

Good Energy

Good Energy is the UK’s only 100% renewable electricity supplier. That means that they guarantee to supply exactly the amount of electricity that their customers consume either from their own renewable energy production or else from bought-in renewable energy supplies. Of all the electricity suppliers they are probably the keenest on customers reducing their demand and very much encourage micro-generation. ‘Green gas’ (or biomethane) is still some years away from being economically viable, so Good Energy have developed a product to work in conjunction with their gas tariff which will encourage the growth of renewable heat generation in the UK. If you're considering using Good Energy then click here and Transition Penwith will benefit financially in a small way.
