Ecotricity: New Energy Plus Tariff

This tariff contrasts with the New Energy tariff, and being called New Energy Plus, you would think that it was better in some way.

And indeed that is the case, because this tariff is a 100% green tariff which is pretty impressive stuff.

The difference is that, whilst the new energy tariff has around 50% green energy with the rest coming from brown electricity, on the new energy plus tariff the additional top-up energy comes from green electricity generated by another company.

Therefore the result is that you are on a 100% green tariff.

Of course, because it is 100% green tariff, then the cost is higher because the cost of generating green energy is higher than brown energy. Their website mentiond that this is around £20 per year per household, so it is not a massive sum.

It is recommended that if you are comparing the tariffs offered by this company that you return to the index of this green tariffs section to read the information about the other tariffs available, and also the green gas tariff if you are looking at getting green gas in addition to green electricity from your chosen supplier.
