Keeping life green and simple
The energy in all our tariffs comes from 100% green & renewable sources.
Turning waste into energy
Energy from 93 million miles away
An invisible force
That’s plants to you and me
Harnessing the Great British weather
Anaerobic digestion is a process where microorganisms break down organic material in the absence of oxygen to produce biogas.
This can be burnt to produce energy, making good use of waste and preventing methane (a gas 20 times more toxic than CO2) leaking into the atmosphere. And what’s more, the nutrient–rich solids left after digestion can be handily used as a fertiliser.
We’re proud to say all our gas is 100% green!
A solar cell (or a ‘photovoltaic cell’ to you scientists out there) takes the light from the sun and converts it into electricity.
Our suppliers use the force of the wind to drive turbines, which in turn make electricity.
The energy generated for our EKO Energy Tariff means that our suppliers need to ensure that their wind farms are located away from bird migration paths – making it uber–environmentally friendly.
Biomass is essentially organic material.
We get the feedstock from plants, from waste products from industry and agriculture – or your very own home.
This waste could be called unpleasant, but the energy produced is clean and renewable because unlike fossil fuels, it hasn’t been locked up underground for years – and let’s not forget, humans will always create waste!
We like the fact we can make something ‘good’ from something ‘bad’.
Whether it’s through anaerobic digestion or heat processing, the biomass is converted into clean, renewable electricity.
Hydro–electricity takes the force of free–falling water and converts it into power.
Some of our energy comes from small hydro–electric schemes in Scotland.
We really do care about the impact even our green energy has on the environment. That’s why all the electricity for our EKO Energy Tariff is generated in locations where migrating fish are protected.
Variable or Fixed
No offsets. No gimmicks. Just the UK’s only 100% green and renewable energy… for people who genuinely care about their impact on our environment.
Premium Green Tariff
The UK’s only tariff to be independently eco–labelled… meaning it’s generated in locations where wildlife is safeguarded. Perfect for people who want to do even more to protect our natural world.
The UK’s first true time–of–use tariff. For people who can significantly shift their demand for electricity away from peak times. Ideal if you have an electric vehicle, solar panels and/or energy storage.
High Tide Saver
100Green customers can save money and protect our planet by helping the UK shift demand for electricity away from peak times.
Receive credit on your 100Green account for each unit of energy you don’t use during High Tide Saver events.
We’re the UK’s only supplier of 100% green gas
Produced using a mix of natural waste and organic material, our 100% green gas makes all of our tariffs truly sustainable.
Does your home have solar panels?
We’re always looking for green energy generators – whether it’s solar, hydro or any domestic–scale renewable energy installation.
If you are a 100Green customer then we’d love to talk about buying the excess energy you generate.
The entire industry is regulated by Ofgem (Office of Gas and Electricity Markets), who make sure that customers of all energy suppliers receive a reliable and uninterrupted supply.
If you have ongoing supply issues then this is the responsibility of our network partners.
Details of your local distribution network can be found in our Customer Promise which you can download here.
All our gas comes from a process known as Anaerobic Digestion - it is therefore 100% green. We’re the only supplier in the UK to offer this to all our domestic and commercial customers.
Industry regulations require us to display our electricity fuel mix as per the table below. In a nutshell, our electricity is 100% renewable.
And here is the environmental impact of our tariffs compared to the UK average.

No, we don’t need to! All our energy is green and renewable from the source.
Carbon offsetting schemes have done wonders to raise awareness of our impact on the environment. But they’re not ‘get out of jail free’ cards. Reducing our reliance on fossil fuels is our focus – not offsetting the impact.
For our electricity, we have a REGO certificate (Renewable Energy Guarantees Origin) for every MWh we supply.
For our gas, we have Renewable Gas Guarantees of Origin (RGGOs).
These certificates prove to the final customer that the energy was produced from renewable sources.
The electricity certification process is audited annually by Ofgem the regulator of the Energy Industry.
And our gas is certified by the Green Gas Certification Scheme (and our EKO Energy Tariff is additionally certified as sustainable, by an independent ecolabel, (EKOenergy.org). You can find out more about EKO Energy here.
No, we don’t. We have a fantastic network of generators. They generate our energy in weird and wonderful ways to meet the ever-growing demand for green and renewable energy across the UK. You can read more about our energy here.
As the UK expands its ability to generate more and more green energy, these are the sorts of challenges our industry faces.
Our EKO Energy Tariff has been independently certified to be generated in locations that protect bird and marine migrations and wildlife habitats.
So it’s perfect for people who want to do more to protect our natural world.

Not at the moment, no. We sell dual fuel (gas and electricity) or you can buy just electricity from us.
