green tariff electricity
If you are interested in reducing your impact on climate change, the very first thing you should do is simply switch your home electricity contract to a 'green tariff' supplier. It's really easy to do (usually just a 5 minute phone call), and thereafter your electricity will come from renewable sources.

which one?
Many different companies now offer green tariff plans - in fact your existing supplier may well offer you a "renewable energy" tariff. Unfortunately it may not be as straightforward as that - the green credentials of these deals aren't usually all they are cracked up to be.

our advice
Our advice is to go with a small independent supplier like Ecotricity or Good Energy. Good Energy will guarantee to supply you with 100% renewable energy, which they source from existing renewable supplies.

Ecotricity, on the other hand, will encourage you to take a supply package that may actually only be partly renewable energy, but they are committed to ploughing profits back into building new wind farms etc (with over 900 invested per customer in 2004). We reckon Ecotricity are doing the most to promote renewable energy in the UK, so our recommendation is to switch to:
