Who Supplies Green Energy In The UK?

33% of the power generated in the UK was renewable in 2018, according to a recent report. The question is, are you part of the 33% helping to save our planet, or is your home contributing to the climate crisis?

It is our mission to get that number up to 100%, but we can’t do it alone. 

Renewable energy, also known as green energy, is produced via sources that are far less damaging to the environment than fossil fuels. The likes of gas and coal power are huge contributing factors to global warming, an issue that is killing our precious home.

The good news is that, at myenergi, we are joined by many energy providers in expanding the UK’s renewable energy usage and reducing our nation’s reliance on the grid.

Follow our steps and guidance to ensure your home is powered by green, renewable energy to ensure you’re reducing your carbon footprint and tracking your energy usage.

What is a Green Energy Supplier?

A green energy supplier is a company that generates the power it provides for its customers’ homes via renewable sources such as:

Independent Renewable Energy Providers

As mentioned earlier, 33% of the National Grid is green, with 61.5% made up of gas and nuclear and the remainder coal and oil. 

26% of people have not yet switched to green energy because they “don’t know enough about it”.

Independent companies have led the charge in green energy from the grid for a while now, with the likes of Bulb and Ecotricity proving popular choices.

Bulb is the UK’s largest green supplier, offering “cheaper, simpler and greener” power to homes across the nation. The tech start-up has been praised for its excellent customer service and affordable tariffs.

Ecotricity, meanwhile, kick-started the green energy movement back in mid-nineties and continue to lead the charge as the world’s first renewable supplier.

Other options for those among you considering the switch to a green energy supplier are:

Large Suppliers Offering Green Energy

If you would prefer to go with a longer-standing energy provider, some of the larger suppliers offer renewable power. 

This relatively new offering likely stemmed from the increased attention and publicity the climate crisis campaign has received in the press, alongside the many companies offering green, renewable energy products.

You can now ask for renewable energy from the following providers:

Self-Consume Your Own Renewable Energy

Those of you who really want to make a big step towards sustainability and the renewable sector should seriously consider generating your own green energy.

Installing solar panels or a wind turbine can tremendously reduce your bills, as well as your reliance on the grid. This, together with our innovative eddi device – which seriously reduces the risk of wasted energy – will make your home much more sustainable and better for the environment.
