I’ve Switched to Good Energy for ‘Feel Good Energy’!

I was very excited to hear of Good Energy’s latest news that they have reduced their gas prices for dual fuel customers, as I’ve been planning to switch to them ever since I started working on the Dorset Energized website, but was a bit worried it would cost more, when we’re trying our best to reduce our household costs wherever we can! But…. with this latest offer there really seemed no excuse to put it off any further and having checked on their website for our actual energy use today, it looks like they will cost exactly the same as our current provider BUT now we can also have ‘feel good energy’ and a clear conscious, so I can’t wait to know that all the energy running through our home and office comes from the greenest energy provider in the UK!

Good Energy say that they “like to keep our prices simple, stable and fair. Our domestic electricity prices have been frozen since April 2009 and we are reducing our dual fuel gas prices on 1st August 2012 – they will go down by 5% for the average dual fuel customer.”

That means they tend to cost about the same as the Big Six’s standard dual fuel tariffs.
Check out their prices for yourself here: http://www.goodenergy.co.uk/switch/our-prices.

To be honest, even if it does work out more expensive, it should be minimal and it’s just one of those things I feel that I should do anyway as just “the right thing to do”, as I don’t have a car (can’t drive and don’t really want to!) and as we are renting so can’t invest in any other forms of renewable energy at the moment (apart from insulating the roof to reduce our energy wastage and hopefully reduce our energy bills – that’s our next step so I will let you know what our landlord says!!!)…

Good Energy’s electricity is 100% renewable and with your help they can build more new sources of renewable energy production, like their wind farm in Delabole, Cornwall, and continue to support a growing community of over 40,000 independent generators across Britain with their industry-leading Feed-in Tariff service. I’m going to be on their Gas+ tariff as buying gas from Good Energy isn’t like buying gas from anyone else, because they’ll use some of my bill to reward people who generate their own renewable heat. So quite simply, it’s only with Good Energy that you’ll help the UK reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and get a gas supply.

Plus, because I was referred from the Dorset Energized website I’ll get £25 off my first bill as a bonus!

So, if you do 1 thing today…  join me and switch to Good Energy and get £25 off your first bill too – find out more on our webpage here: http://www.letsgetenergized.co.uk/energy/switch-energy-suppliers/.

(By the way, the woman in the illustration on that very webpage is actually of me at my desk, just with blonde hair, so I really did have no excuse but to switch myself, and now at last… I have!)

    "Good News from Good Energy! We’ve just been informed today that everything has now transferred so our home and offices are powered by 100% renewable electricity and we are further supporting Good Energy’s investment in renewables by being on their Gas+ too, which means we’ll get money off as a dual fuel customer! PLUS looking forward to getting £25 of our first bill which will at least go towards the £50 fine Scottish Power are charging us for breaking the contract (but of course no one ever reads the small print!!!).

    "I have been a customer of Good Energy for so many years now I can’t remember – at least 10. I was introduced to the idea by eco-friendly friends of mine, and even though I was a single parent, I was happy to pay a little bit extra to make sure my electricity was being sourced from renewables. I have since moved house and Good Energy made that very easy for me. I have also had solar PV panels installed and have had no problems getting the Feed in Tariff paid – unlike customers of other suppliers, I hear! I have not had to contact Good Energy very often, but each time I have it has been like chatting with a friend. They are a great organisation and I would recommend them to anyone. "

    "I’m in the same situation as you – I’m renting my current home and therefore can’t invest in solar panels or other large-scale renewables projects. Good Energy does look like the perfect solution for people in our situation, as it enables us to get 100% green energy even if we’re not generating it ourselves. Well, you can’t have everything! :-) Although when I buy a home within the next couple of years, I will go a step further and have solar panels installed. "

    "These guys do what it says on the tin, they offer a fair constant deal, total commitment to renewables and really any extra cost is negligible. For me, it’s something simple that almost makes you feel good about paying your bills! "
