Green Energy becomes first UK firm to supply 100% green gas to customers
Green Energy UK, an independent energy supplier, has become the first energy firm in Britain to supply only renewable green gas to its customers.
In a statement, Green Energy said it will now only supply its customers with gas from biomethane from anaerobic digestion plants.
Doug Stewart, chief executive of Green Energy UK, said: “Supplying 100% renewable gas and electricity has always been an ambition for Green Energy UK and I’m delighted that we are the first energy supplier in the UK to offer green gas to our existing and new customers.
“Indeed, since we started offering duel fuel electricity and gas in 2014, many of our customers have been asking us to supply 100% green gas and so I’m delighted that we are now able to do so.”
“It is good news for our customers and green gas producers across the country. We are also doing our bit for the environment by not relying on fossil fuels for our energy supplies.”
Until now, Green Energy had supplied its customers with a mixture of conventional natural gas and renewable green gas but it can now offer its customers green gas and sustainable electricity as standard and at no extra cost. Green Energy UK’s dual fuel standard variable tariff is cheaper than British Gas, the UK’s biggest energy supplier.
