Working with Co-operative Energy, we offer our customers access to sustainable energy sources which means you’ll know exactly where your energy is coming from. We are now also 100% green with 55% coming from onshore wind and solar, showing our commitment to help tackle climate change.
We are thrilled to provide our customers with 100% renewable electricity on all of our tariffs as standard and at no extra cost. To help you understand a little more, here's a breakdown of where all our renewable energy comes from:
|Co-op Energy 2017-18 Fuel Mix %||2017-18 Average for UK %|
|Co-op Carbon Content||0|
|National Average (g/kWh)||359.45|
|Co-op renewable content||100.00%|
|Co-op radioactive waste||0.00%|
We are committed to a sustainable world, and this is reflected in surpassing our previous target of 75% renewal sources by the end of 2018. We now obtain 100% of our electricity from renewable sources across all tariffs as standard.
To make a step change to the future carbon content of our fuel mix, Co-operative Energy ceased contracting energy that is generated from coal fired power stations from February 2016. Due to our historic purchases we are still taking delivery of generic energy which will include both coal and nuclear generation, but the coal generation content will diminish to zero over the next three years.
In addition, we are committed to helping our members and customers reduce their energy consumption by offering energy saving advice and smart technology.
Taken together, we believe that this demonstrates our real commitment to creating a better, fairer and sustainable world.
