We are not like other green energy providers. We challenge the idea that ‘being green’ is all about making a big commitment, about making an extra effort, and paying extra costs.
Indeed, companies often talk about green energy as an 'alternative'. On the contrary, green energy makes sense for everyone, and we want to make it mainstream.
So, our prices are competitive not only within the green market, but also the entire utilities industry. By minimising the cost and effort it takes to switch, we aim to remove all obstacles to going green.
And because we want to give you even more reason to switch, we allow our customers to become shareholders for free.
Put simply: we do care about the environment, but we are not idealists with our heads in the clouds. We are down to earth, in every sense.
