Our energy mix

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:

We are committed to a sustainable world, and this is reflected in that we purchase 100% of our electricity from renewable sources.

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.

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.
