Bristol Energy to offer only green tariffs to new customers

Bristol Energy has launched three new green products – BE Simply Green, BE Super Green and Big Issue Super Green – and will make them the only tariffs available to new customers.

The BE Super Green and Big Issue Super Green products’ green electricity is sourced from UK generators, such as wind power from Wales’ (Ceredigion) Grannell Co-op and solar power from Swansea’s Gower Power,  with 100% gas carbon offsets. Big Issue Super Green  offers customers the opportunity to make a £30 donation (when switching both electricity and gas) to The Big Issue . 

Bristol Energy said its new portfolio supports Bristol City Council’s ambition for the city to become carbon neutral by 2030. Marek Majewicz, Managing Director at Bristol Energy, said: “We are pleased to now only offer green products to new customers, encouraging green energy and supporting local renewable generators across wind, solar, hydro and bio. By sourcing electricity directly from renewable generators, we’re committing to supporting local businesses and communities who generate renewable power, by giving them a route to market and a good price for the power they sell”.
