Ecotricity – The World’s first green electricity company:  When Ecotricity offered Green Electricity for the first time, they became not just Britain’s but the world’s first Green Electricity company.  Their mission was and remains to change the way electricity is made and used in Britain. They chose this focus because conventional electricity is responsible for 30% of Britain’s carbon emissions – it’s our biggest single source as a nation – and therefore the biggest single thing we can change.

To Green Energy Company:  In 2010 Ecotricity introduced the concept of Green Gas to Britain and in the process they evolved into a fully-fledged Green Energy company. They can make their own gas and put it into the national gas grid.  Ecotricity operate a unique model. They use customers’ energy bills to fund the building of new sources of Green Energy. They like to refer to this as turning ‘Bills into Mills’ – energy bills into windmills. They’re a not-for-dividend company – all their profits go into their mission.  With no shareholders to answer to they’re free to dedicate themselves to the task of building new sources of Green Energy. And that’s what Ecotricity do, on average spending more each year per customer on new sources of Green Energy than any other energy company in Britain – bar none!
