Green electricity is generated from natural and renewable energy sources that have less of an impact on the environment than fossil fuels. Energy produced using solar energy, wind energy and water power (hydroelectricity) are all renewable forms of energy, so called because unlike fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, green energy sources will not run out.
More and more consumers across the UK are switching to a greener energy supplier, like Good Energy! Green electricity suppliers invest in renewable energy and match their customers’ demand with electricity that comes from sunshine, wind and rain.
