Choose green electricity today!
Choosing green electricity is an easy and useful way to reduce your impact on the environment. It is also a signal to producers and to authorities that they should upscale investments in the production of renewable electricity, such as electricity from wind and sun.
Most electricity companies give their consumers -i.e. you- the choice between ‘green electricity’ and ‘grey electricity’. If your supplier does not have a green product, it is worth to switch to another supplier. The price won’t be a problem. Rather the opposite: not choosing your producer and sticking to the ‘standard product’ almost always leaves you with an expensive contract.
