(Tariffs A-Z)

We’ll match 100% of the electricity you use from us on this tariff by purchasing electricity from renewable sources through Guarantees of Origin (GoOs).

We’ll offset double the carbon footprint created from the gas that you use on this tariff until the 31st December 2021. This means that for the electricity you use the same amount of electricity from renewable sources will be fed into the network, and for the gas that you use with us, double the carbon footprint will be offset through carbon emission reduction projects in the developing world.

When green tariffs offer additional benefits to the environment such as lower carbon emissions or donations to environmental organisations this is called ‘additionality’. This tariff does provide additionality. This is because the renewable electricity that is matched to your use is over and above our existing environmental commitments, and we will offset double the gas carbon footprint created from the gas that you use on this tariff through Certified Emissions Reduction Certificates (CERs).

With this tariff you will also need to set up an online account with us to manage everything totally online. We will ask you for an email address and get you to set up a password. You will also need to arrange a smart meter upgrade (if eligible). With smart meters, you’ll be able to see exactly what you are using in pounds and pence.

We’ll match 100% of your electricity consumption on this tariff with Guarantees of Origin (GoOs). This means purchasing certificates that guarantee electricity has been generated from a renewable source to match the electricity that you’ll use. Certified Emission Reduction Certificates (CERs) come from emission-reduction projects in developing countries. They are issued by the United Nations and are each equivalent to one tonne of CO2.

Please note, the electricity and gas you use won’t be exactly the same energy that was generated from the renewable sources. For more information about our fuel mix, environmental benefits which are in addition to our legal obligations, UK Government support for renewable energy supply and how electricity is physically distributed have a look at our PDF below.

Frequently asked questions

What is a kilowatt hour (kWh)?

A kWh stands for kilowatt hour – the unit used to measure energy use. 1 kWh will power a 40 watt light bulb for 25 hours.

What is a Personal Projection?
Your Personal Projection is an estimate of what you’re likely to pay over the next 12 months. We work it out using the unit rate for where you live, daily standing charge, any applicable discounts and how much energy we think you’ll use in the next 12 months. It includes VAT.
What happens if I change the way I pay?

If you move from Direct Debit to pay by Cash or Cheque, your unit rate will increase. You can see the difference between Direct Debit and Cash or Cheque rates by updating your personalised quote. We’ll always give you seven days’ notice before we change the way you pay, though. These prices are all correct as of 1st August 2017.

Do I need to tell my current supplier I'm switching?
No - once you've given us your details and confirmed that you want to switch, we'll handle everything for you.
