Renewable energy

100% renewable electricity.

All of our customers' homes and businesses get 100% renewable electricity, at no extra cost.*

What is 100% renewable electricity?

It means that all of the electricity that we provide for your home and business is sourced from E.ON's renewable generation assets, supply agreements with independent UK wind generators and through the purchase of renewable electricity certificates. The electricity supplied to homes and businesses ultimately comes from the National Grid.

What are REGOs?

Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin or REGOs, are certificates which show electricity has been generated from renewable sources. Energy generators are given one REGO for each megawatt hour of electricity they produce. All of this is administered by Ofgem (the Energy Industry Regulator).

This means that 100% of your electricity comes from renewable sources such as solar, wind and hydro as all the renewable electricity we sell is backed by REGOs.

Our energy mix

We take our electricity from the National Grid, and whilst not all of the electricity produced for it is renewable, we make sure that the bit we take is. We do this through our energy mix and the ways in which we get renewable electricity:

  • We generate our own renewable electricity. Our biomass plants in Lockerbie and Sheffield create enough energy to power 100,000 homes throughout the UK.

  • We work with other renewable generators, such as wind farms.

  • We buy REGO certificates.

One small step to renewable energy.
