Go Green with 100% renewable electricity

Most of us want to do our bit for the planet. We recycle our rubbish around the home and try to remember to switch things off when not in use. We look for triple A rated energy efficient appliances and a lot of us are even beginning to move over to electric vehicles in a bid to lower our carbon footprint and keep the earth safe for future generations.

When it comes to renewable energy, many people are keen to move away from older and dirtier forms of power like coal and oil, which are evidently harmful to the environment. Yet, with some companies charging hefty premiums to switch to a “Green” tariff, it can be off-putting and in some cases, unaffordable. 

The question is – Why should you have to choose between the planet and your pocket?

The good news is that you no longer have to!

Family run energy firm Fischer Energy supplies 100% renewable electricity as part of their One Fair Tariff with no additional costs for going green.

The country’s fastest growing energy provider supplies its electricity from offshore wind farms based right here in the UK and is determined to play a part in reducing the burning of fossil fuels and carbon emissions.

Research suggests that an overwhelming 40,000 lives in the UK alone are-cut short each year by air pollution. It is a horrendous figure and with renewable forms of energy becoming much more efficient, we all need to think more about where our energy comes from.

Fischer Energy is one of the few independent suppliers who supply renewable electricity as standard. They also provide customers with bespoke energy saving advice to help reduce consumption, helping customers reduce bills by becoming more efficient.

While most people agree that renewable energy is undoubtedly a good thing, it does court occasional criticism from cynics citing government subsidies, high development costs and other horror stories. To counter this, here are our top five facts about renewable energy that should set any detractors mind at rest.

  1. By the time you finish reading our first renewable fact, one wind turbine located at the Burbo Bank extension in Liverpool bay has generated enough energy to power your home for 29 hours.
  2. One of the biggest grumbles people seem to have about renewables are the subsidies provided by the government. Yet, the reality is fossil fuels receive four times the amount in subsidies. We are literally paying to damage our planet.
  3. It has not been the greatest of summers this year, but you may be surprised to learn that enough sunshine beams on the earth to satisfy the entire world’s energy needs for a whole year.
  4. The renewable energy industry is also great for our economy and creates over four times the amount of jobs than the fossil fuel industry.
  5. Solar energy can now be harnessed throughout the night as well as during the day. A solar plant in Spain soaks up the Sun’s rays and stores them in salt. This gives over seven hours of power to homes in the region.

It is thought that by 2050, 95% of the world’s energy needs will be met by renewables. You don’t need to wait that long. Switch to Fischer Energy today and lower your carbon footprint in a matter of minutes. – You are also likely to save some money while you’re at it.
