Ecotricity increase energy prices
Ecotricity, the green electricity company has today, 1st August 2008, announced prices increase in three distribution areas.
Ecotricity offer two tariffs.
Ecotricity's popular New Energy tariff offers a growing percentage of green supply offset from their own turbines, currently around 25%, with the rest coming from conventional sources. The more customers Ecotricity has, the more investment they can make in building new renewable electricity. With New Energy you pay the same as the standard price of your regional supplier.
New Energy Plus
New Energy Plus tariff is derived of green supply offset from their own wind turbines, plus additional green electricity purchased from elsewhere, making this a 100% green supply tariff. There is a small premium of 0.5p per kilowatt hour to cover the extra costs of supplying additional existing green supply.
As a result of EDF Energy's recent price increase Ecotricity has reviewed electricity prices in the London, Seeboard and SWEB distribution areas.
