National Trust Green Energy
National Trust Green Energy was launched by npower in association with The National Trust on the 3rd September 2007.
The concept was that National Trust Green Energy was sourced from 100% renewable sources and was charged at the same cost as npower’s standard electricity tariff cost.
In addition npower donated £15 to the National Trust Green Energy Fund, which invested in low and zero carbon initiatives at Trust sites. The Trust also received £15 every year thereafter as long as customer remained on the tariff.
Customers could have paid by a variety of payment methods including Direct Debit, cash, cheque or pay as you go if you have a prepayment meter.
As of 31st August 2012 npower ceased offering this tariff. Existing customers can remain on the tariff until March 2013. Over the five year partnership, npower invested over £1million in National Trust's low carbon energy initiatives including micro generation, solar panels and energy efficiency projects across National Trust's portfolio of properties.
National Trust stated on the 14th November 2012: “Good Energy has become our principal energy partner and will provide us with financial and practical support in developing renewable energy projects to help meet our ambitious target to halve our use of fossil fuels by 2020.
Projects are likely to include wood-fired boilers to replace old oil heating systems in National Trust properties, plus sustainable water and solar power installations to generate green electricity.†
As part of the initiative, Good Energy will offer its certified 100% green energy tariff to over 4m National Trust members, in addition to supporters and volunteers.†
For each of our supporters who signs up to the 100% tariff and standard gas, Good Energy will give up to £40 every year to support the National Trust.”
