Plus, Co-op Energy fully offset the carbon emissions from your gas, too.

What is community energy?
Community energy schemes literally put power in the hands of local people. Communities all over Great Britain are coming together to build their own wind turbines, solar farms or hydro schemes. By selling the electricity they generate, they raise money that can be channelled back into local communities, ensuring local people have control over their future energy supply, and supporting other carbon reduction projects.
