Green Energy Tariff
By Chris Bradshaw on June 30th, 2011
There are two main methods of purchasing green tariff electricity from your supplier.
With this type of tariff the electricity supplier must ensure that for every unit of electricity you purchase, the company sources a stated percentage of renewable electricity for you. This is separate from their Renewables Obligation set by the government.
If you opt for this tariff, your premium goes towards helping your electricity supplier participate in renewable energy projects and aids future development of sustainable energy.
