It's important to make an informed choice.

When you switch your energy supply, we think you should know exactly where your energy comes from. To make things really easy for you, we've compared our fuel mix to the national average in the tables below.

Will this change?

Our fuel mix will change, so we'll update our figures when the yearly national averages are announced.

100% renewable electricity

From 01 October 2019 all our electricity is 100% renewable.

This means that all of our electricity comes from wind, solar and hydro.

This is certified by the Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs). All this means is that the electricity you buy from us is equally matched with units from 100% renewable sources, creating more opportunities for renewable generators in the UK.
