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. 10% is green gas produced from renewable sources like food or farm waste, and we offset the rest by supporting carbon reduction projects across the world.

Wherever we can, we partner with renewable generators to directly purchase their electricity. Where we can't, we buy electricity from the market and match every unit with a certificate to guarantee a unit of renewable electricity is put onto the grid. We also work with trusted partners like SmartestEnergy who connect us with their own community of renewable generators.

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.
