Where does my energy come from?

We think it's really important that you know where your energy comes from. We supply 100% renewable electricity from a mixture of generation types including wind, solar and hydro. Plus, our gas is 100% carbon neutral. We offset the emissions from the gas we supply by supporting carbon reduction projects around the world. We're also the biggest buyer of green gas for homes in the UK so a chunk of our gas mix comes from renewable sources, like food or farm waste, too.

We buy our energy from renewable generators across the UK. Wherever we can, we partner with generators to directly purchase their electricity. Where we don't, we buy electricity on the wholesale market and a renewable energy certificate to match. Every unit of electricity we supply can be traced back to a renewable source.

Why is it special?
The area around Loch Awe in Argyll is beautiful but wet. Perfect for small-scale hydro power. The people behind Beochlich are pretty special too. Thrive Renewables has a mission to make it easy for people to invest in clean, green energy projects, and they in turn invest in local communities. Here they've helped fund the nearby village hall, a great resource for walkers on the stunning West Highland Way.
