E.ON to supply all customers with 100% renewable power.

E.ON has announced it is now providing all of its domestic customers on all tariffs with 100% renewable electricity. The Big Six supplier said the change means more than 3.3 million homes will have electricity from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and biomass at no extra cost. It is currently producing enough renewable electricity equivalent to powering around 1.7 million homes. 

E.ON is directly supplying a large proportion of this renewable power through its own generation fleet, as well as agreements with independent wind generators across the UK and the remaining electricity is matched with 100% green power sourced externally through such things as renewable electricity guarantee certificates. The news comes as its survey of more than 4,200 electricity customers revealed more than three in five Brits (61%) not on a renewable tariff would be likely to switch to a green power supplier if it is offered “at a reasonable price”.
