Ethical Energy Supplier Partnership

Transition Durham has joined a scheme coordinated by Local United, a network of low carbon social enterprises, that gives us a fantastic opportunity to team up with several ethical energy suppliers: Good Energy, Green Energy UK, Co-operative Energy and Ecotricity. Each of these is committed to cleaning up the supply of electricity and gas, by sourcing energy from renewable sources and observing high social and environmental standards in their business practice.
If you currently get your electricity or gas from one of the major energy companies, switching to one of these ethical suppliers is a simple step that can dramatically improve the environmental and social impacts of your energy use. In addition, it can help give Transition Durham a valuable income stream For every customer who we persuade to switch to one of these suppliers, we get paid a small commission, which we can use towards our core operating costs and supporting our projects.
Many people automatically assume that ethical energy will be more expensive, but all of the suppliers involved offer competitive long term rates with clear pricing structures. They don’t have lots of confusing tariffs with short term deals, so once you have switched you won’t need to worry about coming to the end of a cheap deal and ending up on a really expensive tariff. You can relax and know that you are already on the best deal available.
Switching is simple, all you need to do is follow the simple steps on the Local United website. Every year you stay signed up with the supplier they will donate money to us, and you don’t pay any extra for that, it isn’t added on to your bill. It is just a payment that the ethical companies make to us because we have asked you to switch.
