Utility Eon is providing all of its residential customers across Britain on all tariffs as standard, and at no extra cost with a 100 percent renewable electricity supply. According to the company, more than 3.3 million homes now have an electricity supply matched by renewable sources including wind, biomass and solar.
Eon is directly supplying a large proportion of this renewable electricity through its own renewable generation fleet, as well as agreements with independent wind generators around the country to directly purchase the electricity produced. The remaining electricity used by customers is matched with 100 percent renewable electricity sourced externally through such things as renewable electricity guarantee certificates from the likes of wind, biomass and solar sources. These certificates guarantee that an equivalent amount of renewable electricity was generated to the amount supplied.
A survey of electricity customers shows more than three in five Britons (61 percent) not already on a renewable tariff, would be likely to change to a renewable electricity supplier if at a reasonable price.
