Renewable Energy Suppliers
Good Energy is a green electricity company that was formed in 1999. All
the electricity it supplies comes from wind and small scale hydro and
solar power generators all over Britain. As an electricity supply company,
Good Energy does not build renewable generation sites, but instead
concentrates on building the demand for renewable electricity by
increasing its customer numbers and creating a demand for generators and
installers to develop new generation sites. The company currently supplies
over 15,000 customers.
Ecotricity is a green electricity company, which has been building wind
turbines and selling electricity across the country since 1996. It uses
its income from customers to invest in clean forms of power such as wind
energy. It is also the only green electricity company building these new
renewable energy sources. In 2006 it is investing £7 million in wind
energy. It supplies people like the Body Shop and Co-operative Bank and is
recommended by the Soil Association and WWF.
companies below offer green tariffs alongside their standard ones. Some

co2balance.com can help you minimise your carbon emissions and offset the
unavoidable residue. Offsetting works by investing funds in energy
efficiency or forestry projects that absorb or prevent the release of a
tonnage of CO2 equivalent to your Carbon Footprint.
We help organisations to measure and reduce the CO2 from some or all of
their operation, and then 'offset' unavoidable emissions. When
emissions are reduced to net zero, the organisation, product or service
can carry the CarbonNeutral quality mark. We also provide ways for
individuals to offset their personal carbon emissions.
Carbonfund.org reduces the threat of climate change by making it easy and
affordable for any individual or business to reduce their carbon footprint
and support climate-friendly projects. Please take action today!
A range of calculators which enable individuals and businesses to measure
their carbon emissions resulting from various activities.
