Ecotricity - The Frack Free Promise

100 percent Green Electricity for all our customers
Ecotricity is a pretty cool company and one that I am proud to be part of. It's a rare thing to say that about a company that you have to pay utility bills to but really, if you have to pay bills, at least make sure the money is going back into something sound. For a start the founder, Dale Vince, is vegan. Nothing wrong and everything right about that. Secondly Dale and his team have built up Ecotricity into a company that is going from strength to strength in supplying green energy.

We get emailed newsletters from them from time to time and the most recent one really made me sit up and take note more than usual. They are now offering just one simple tariff for electricity but importantly this is now 100% green. Even better, the price of this tariff undercuts the standard tariffs of the Big Six energy companies in the UK. Put simply, they are supplying green electricity for less than the price of brown!

We don't have gas in our village but if we did we would also source this from Ecotricity. They have one simple tariff for this too and this is price matched to British Gas' standard tariff. Even at two per cent green it's still the greenest gas in the country and I was delighted to hear that their Green Gas tariff is
frack-free and always will be.
We'll only supply Frack Free Gas

Ecotricity are the 'leading light' for green energy in the UK and I can't imagine it will be long before the other Big Six are running to keep up. The difference is the Big Six will be worried about their profits whilst Ecotricity are more worried about giving the consumers the ability to tick all the right ethical boxes at a fair price.

This is beginning to sound like an advertisement but I know who we will be paying our bills to over the coming years.  Veganism isn't just about the things you eat, it's also about the choices you make in life.
