Ecotricity History - 2008

What a year – crazy energy prices and the start of a global recession.

But we had stuff in the pipeline from previous years of hard work and it came good in 2008, we built twenty one new windmills during the year, almost doubling our fleet of green generators and spending a record amount of our customers’ bills on mills.

It was a huge achievement, and really upped the green energy in our mix. We also started our attempts to break the land speed record for a wind-powered vehicle (with the Greenbird), and began work on our electric supercar, the Nemesis.
