Truly green energy

Welcome to Britain’s greenest energy company. All our electricity is certified green, and also certified vegan. Our gas is a mix of carbon-neutralised natural gas and sustainable green gas.

What makes us different is that we have no shareholders. So, instead of paying dividends we invest your bills in building new forms of green energy. And, you can be absolutely certain that the energy we supply will not be greenwashed.

Joining Ecotricity is one of the biggest things you can do to help fight climate change.

We've been fighting climate change for 29 years

When we launched in 1995, we were Britain’s only green energy company and we founded the global green energy movement.

Since then we’ve grown and grown, building wind and solar farms to power homes and businesses across the country. As we celebrate our 29th anniversary we continue to lead the way with pioneering innovations in green energy.

1996 lynch knoll
On 13 December 1996, the first of many truly magic moments in the history of Ecotricity took place. We completed our first ever windmill. And it’s been turning ever since.
2002 three windmills
In 2002, we added two more windmills to our collection. Situated near Mablethorpe in Lincolnshire, they were the first in the county and began turning in July.
2003 supply homes
Up until 2003, we’d only ever supplied energy to businesses, but never homes. Finally, we were ready and able to supply green electricity to homes across Britain.
2007 Al Gore and Dale Vince
In 2007, Al Gore presented our founder Dale Vince with the Ashden UK Award for work in the area of renewable energy.
2013 100 percent green
On 1 August 2013, we introduced 100% green electricity for all our customers. Up until that point we had two tariffs – New Energy, which was about 60% green; and New Energy Plus, which was 100% green for a small extra cost.
2018 vegan electricity
Ecotricity became the first energy supplier to offer vegan electricity certified by Viva! and The Vegan Society in 2018.

In 2022, we built two new sun parks in Bulkworthy (near Galsworthy Farm), Devon and Dalby, Leicestershire, with the latest solar panel technology, next to our existing wind parks at both sites.

Recently, we completed the build of our very first green gasmill in Reading. Creating green gas made from grass, the mill is now feeding into the National Grid and will provide enough green gas to supply 6,000 homes.

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
