What fuels are used to generate my electricity?

All energy companies are required to advise their customers about the mix of fuels they use to supply electricity to their customers and the impact it has on the environment.

The table below shows information on electricity that we supplied from 1st April 2018 to 31st March 2019 by our energy provider Robin Hood Energy.

Our fuel mix figures are retrospective from April 2018 to March 2019. Our above figures reflect that time period, meaning there was a three month lapse before we launched our 100% Green Electricity Tariffs* in July 2018.

*Our green electricity tariffs are certified as being sourced from UK based wind and solar generators. For every Megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity purchased for our customers, we also purchase a Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificate, which proves the electricity is certified as being sourced either directly from the renewable generators or through a green wholesale energy provider.
