Bills into Mills

Watch our founder Dale Vince as he explains how we use your bills to create new green energy

What makes Ecotricity different from other energy companies is that we take the money we make from our customers’ bills and use it to build new forms of green energy.

We call it Bills into Mills and it means that by paying your bill every month you’re helping fight climate change. Every new windmill or solar park we build reduces Britain’s reliance on fossil fuels to generate electricity.

While our competitors just buy and trade energy certificates, we also make the stuff. And when other energy companies pay dividends to their shareholders, isn’t it nice to know that with Ecotricity your money is being put to good use?

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

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.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
