Newly launched this spring, www.greenenergyswitch.co.uk provides you with easy access to a comparison of 100% green energy tariffs. With self-isolation measures and remote-working restrictions currently in force, home energy bills are set to rise – so why don’t you make the switch and save online today?
Green Energy Switch is offering a selection of the best renewable energy tariffs, chosen on the strict criteria of providing value for money, fantastic customer service and because they are 100% ethical.
Switching to a green tariff could save you money and help tackle climate change. Homes save £230 a year on average by switching to renewable energy through the site.
The only tariffs listed are those where the supplier can guarantee that 100% of the electricity sold is matched by energy from renewables. Green energy means power generated from the elements (such as sun, wind and water), and biofuels (gas released by rotting food and agricultural waste). Choosing a green energy supplier can help play a part in tackling climate change and improving air quality.
“Through this campaign we’re hoping to encourage large numbers of UK households to switch to affordable and renewable energy tariffs,” says Maxine Palmer, Director at Green Energy Switch. “By doing so we hope to cut carbon in the UK and tackle climate change. We want to create a positive movement towards making greener choices, both at home and in our business lives, and to help support future investment in renewables.”
There are no costs for the user in switching through the site, but an additional benefit is that any profits made by Green Energy Switch are gifted back to the environmental charity PECT to help fund its vital work.
The charity works with communities, schools, businesses and voluntary organisations to make a real difference to people’s lives and enable change for a sustainable future. Whether it’s helping people stay warm and healthy at home, tackling social isolation, and supporting environmental education in schools or protecting and transforming local landscapes – the funds will go towards benefitting people, wildlife and the environment.
Green Energy Switch is a Peterborough-based service provider that delivers a range of environmental energy-related services across the UK. These include helping businesses and residents with commercial energy, solar power, electric vehicle charging points, LED lighting, home energy advice, Energy Performance Certificates, and providing a national Void Management Service.

Our goal is to keep residents warmer for longer and give them more choice over when they use their storage heating. In providing more control, we can reduce their energy bills. Upgrading of the heating system requires no capital from the council, housing association or tenants.
Last month we were excited to attend the East Midlands Energy Efficiency & Healthy Homes Awards.

On average, energy bills account for more than £1000 of the annual expenditure of a household. However, with a bit of knowledge and know-how, you can help to cut the size of your energy bill. In this post, we take a look at our five favourite energy saving tips.
Energy Saving Tips: 1 – Turn off Standby Appliances
Leaving your appliances on standby is an easy habit to fall into. From TVs to radios, almost all of our household electrical appliances have a handy standby button standing by, just in case we can’t be bothered to stand up and turn the appliance off properly. But while it might be easier to press the red button it certainly isn’t cheaper.
