Big Six energy firm E.ON swapping all domestic customers to renewable electricity — at no extra cost – The Sun

BIG Six energy firm E.ON is switching all of its domestic customers to  a 100 per cent  renewable electricity supply — at no extra cost.

The move means more than 3.3 million homes now have an electricity supply matched by renewable sources including wind, biomass and solar.

It comes as a survey of electricity customers shows more than three in five Britons (61 per cent) not already on a renewable tariff, would be likely to change to a renewable electricity supplier if at a reasonable price.

“Climate change is the defining issue of our era, and one that energy customers are increasingly concerned about,” said E.ON UK ceo Michael Lewis.

“Our announcement is an important first step in a journey towards a more sustainable and personalised energy system.”

E.ON is directly supplying a large proportion of this renewable electricity through its own renewable generation fleet, as well as agreements with independent wind generators around the country.
