Our green energy

Local renewable generator creating green energy for Bristol Energy

We’re on a journey to becoming a lower carbon, wholly green energy supplier.

Our green tariffs are competitively priced, so you get energy that is better for the planet and great value for money too.

By joining Bristol Energy, you are supporting the local energy generators which we purchase our energy from. This means both small and large organisations within our community benefit, boosting our local economy.

We provide 100% green renewable electricity and lower carbon gas to our customers, and we’re growing our mix of direct power purchase agreements from local renewable generators, green energy certificates and lower carbon initiatives to further benefit the environment and our communities.

Join our journey to becoming cleaner and greener.

Green and renewable electricity

For the BE Simply Green product we buy Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO) certificates that match the electricity you use to renewable power that exists on the grid. For the BE Super Green product we source the electricity directly from renewable generators around the country through Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), so we know exactly where your energy is coming from. This is our greenest available product.

Low carbon gas

We promise that for every tonne of carbon emitted through your consumption of gas, we will purchase a carbon offset certificate from verified emission reduction schemes. The carbon offsets we purchase contribute towards global low carbon projects such as creating wind parks in India, reducing deforestation in Brazil, and installing solar cookers in China. These projects not only reduce global carbon emissions, but also contribute towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Social and environmental contributions

If you sign up to the BE Super Green tariff, Bristol Energy will contribute £10 per fuel (this means £20 if we supply you with both gas and electricity) towards local social and environmental initiatives such as tree planting and renewable energy projects. Examples of projects we are working with include One Tree Per Child and Avon Needs Trees.
