Electricity Prices 2010-2011 Many electricity companies are now offering ‘green’ tariffs. The sheer quantity of differing green tariffs now available is creating confusion to the consumer. The common questions we are asked are:
- Which tariffs are the most eco friendly?
- How do they work in practice?
- Do they lead to more electricity being generated from Renewable sources?
- How much do they cost?
'Green electricity' means electricity produced from sources which do not cause negative impacts upon the environment. Of course, every type of electricity generation will have some impact, but some sources are much greener than others. The cleanest energy sources are those which utilise the natural energy flows of the Earth. These are known as renewable energy sources.
