Why should I switch?

Aside from the fact that switching to renewables is better for the planet, there are loads of great reasons to make the change:

The cost of renewables has decreased dramatically over the past few years meaning that renewable energy tariffs can now compete on price as well as eco-credentials.

Moving away from fossil fuels sends a powerful message to the fossil fuel industry that consumers are ready to change and no longer want to contribute to planet-damaging practices.

Renewable energy is clean energy which doesn’t contribute to air pollution.

Renewable energy is not a finite resource like fossil fuels.
