Where does your 100% renewable electricity come from?
For our Family Green tariffs, every unit of electricity we supply can be matched to a renewable source through Renewable Electricity Guarantee of Origin certificates (REGOs).
In the UK, electricity is generated from a variety of sources, such as gas, nuclear, coal and renewables like solar, hydro, wind, biomass.
Whichever way the electricity gets generated, it all gets mixed up on the National Grid – renewables and fossil fuels alike.
No supplier can guarantee that the energy powering your home is directly from renewable sources. So to show that we’re getting our electricity from renewables, we buy REGO certificates from Ofgem, the UK's energy regulator.
This means we can guarantee that we’ve replaced the energy you used in the grid with energy sourced from renewables. This helps our energy system transition into a greener one! By ensuring that renewable energy keeps getting put into the National Grid.

Yes, we supply 33% renewable electricity as standard on our standard variable and prepayment tariffs.
Our fixed Family Green tariffs include 100% renewable electricity. In recent years we’ve used a combination of renewable sources including onshore wind, biomass, and hydro.
In the future, we aim to supply all our electricity from renewable sources, as well as offering our customers green gas and the choice to carbon offset. This is part of our mission to provide our customers green, clean energy at fair prices to power their homes and businesses.
