Whilst we will not seek to directly purchase electricity from nuclear generators, the electricity supply of the UK does include generation from nuclear sources. Currently our fuel mix is grid average and this will include nuclear power in the mix.
We source our power from a wide range of sources and currently our fuel mix is grid average. Moving forward our focus is on energy from clean, renewable sources to ensure that our environment is safeguarded for future generations. We intend to increase our renewable energy over time, while still ensuring we can achieve our social and economic objectives. We offer a 100% green tariff called My Green Plus, which is currently available in the South West regions, and we hope to make the tariff available across the whole of the UK in the near future.
Anyone in Great Britain can become a customer and help Bristol Energy achieve our social objectives.
Profits from Bristol Energy will be reinvested into Bristol, and likely to include local sustainable energy projects and council service priorities.
A Municipal Energy Initiative is an energy project that is being run by a local authority, in this case Bristol City Council. In Bristol the company is a key legacy from its year as European Green Capital.
Bristol Energy is owned by Bristol City Council and we will generate an income that will go back into the city. We will champion renewable energy projects in the community and ensure fair prices for those who spend more than they can afford on fuel bills.
