Company Description

20 years ago Juliet Davenport wanted to do something that would have real and lasting value to our planet.

She believed everyone had the right to clean, green energy to power their homes and businesses. That all of our futures depended on it. So, she did something revolutionary.

She built a company whose sole purpose was to power the choice of a cleaner, greener future for everyone.

She believed that businesses could lead the way. And that if people were offered an alternative to the fossil fuels that were killing our planet, they would take it.

And they did. Over 259,000 homes and businesses have chosen our green power. Supplied by 1,400 different locations - from a single home solar panels to wind farms.

But that's not enough.

In 2020 we're transforming the service we offer our customers so we can help more people choose a cleaner, greener future together. Because everyone has the right to power their homes and businesses without risking the earth. All of our futures depend on it.
