100% Renewable Energy UK Suppliers

This post focus’s on UK Business Energy Suppliers that claim 100% renewable energy, without looking into actual energy generation.

Please note there is a difference in the way energy suppliers “provide” renewable energy. I’ll hopefully do a post on it soon but for now you can google “Greenwash” Energy Tariffs.

Opus Energy – 100% Renewable

All of Opus Energy’s power now comes from renewable electricity sources. Such generators are provided with a government certificate as evidence that they have produced power which is 100% renewable. This certificate is called a Guarantee of Origin. It is then passed on to Opus Energy as proof that the power they have procured and supplied to their customers is from a sustainable source.

EON Energy – Not 100%

EON claim that their energy is now 100% renewable but this simply isn’t true. All their small business (non half-hourly) Fixed Business plans that are agreed directly with them use 100% renewable electricity. This basically means that they still provide a lot of businesses with non-renewable energy.
