Ecotricity History - 2013

Lion House

On Thursday 1 August we launched a 100% green electricity tariff for all our customers – called Green Electricity.

We had two tariffs until then – New Energy, which in 2012 was about 60% green, and New Energy Plus, which was 100% green for a small extra cost.

Our Green Electricity tariff blends the best of both – the 100% green content of New Energy Plus and the lower price of New Energy.

We also introduced our frack-free promise to our Green Gas tariff – assuring our customers that we’ll never source any of our gas from shale, and that we’ll never invest in fracking.

2013 was our first year at WOMAD festival – and we loved it so much that we’ve been back every year since.

For more details on what we did, you can download our 2013 Progress Report (PDF, 3.9 MB) in PDF format.
