New Peterborough green energy comparison website can save residents money on bills

A new green energy comparison website which will benefit an environment charity in Peterborough has been set up.

Sunday, 29th March 2020, 6:00 am

Newly launched this spring, provides residents with easy access to a comparison of 100 per cent green energy tariffs.

Green Energy Switch is offering a selection of the best renewable energy tariffs chosen on the strict criteria of providing value for money, customer service and because they are 100 per cent ethical.

Switching to a green tariff could save you money and help tackle climate change.

The only tariffs listed are those where the supplier can guarantee that 100 per cent 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,” said 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 Peterborough Environment City Trust.

The charity works with communities, schools, businesses and voluntary organisations to enable change for a sustainable future.

It helps people stay warm and healthy at home, tackles social isolation, supports environmental education in schools and protects and transforms local landscapes.

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.
