It all comes and goes via National Grid What we do | National Grid Group but what we pay extra for green tariff goes towards supporting green suppliers and paying the cost differential.The are not the only supplier to advertise this (mine's Octopus). I wonder where they get all their renewable electricity from when there's no wind and sunshine?
Yes but we are where we are, and the party of privatisation keeps getting re elected so someone must think its a good thing. It's a 40 year old argument.Should never have been sold off in the first place - a completely pointless exercise.
It's only notionally private sector - in reality it's under strict government control. Non of them can be allowed to go bust and close down like a genuinely private sector business......
Fact is, right now it's all private sector and we have to manage the consequences both at a personal and national level.
I'm well aware of that, but to advertise that the electricity you're using is 100% renewable is bollix.
Non of them can be allowed to go bust and close down like a genuinely private sector business.

The point I was making was that the actual supply of services can't be allowed to stop. These failed companies can't just close down and sell off assets like a genuinely private company. They were pointless to start with - only notionally or nominally private.

I think they'd disagree with you.
It is 100% if you are paying 100% of the actual cost of green energy, effectively, to all intents and purposes.I'm well aware of that, but to advertise that the electricity you're using is 100% renewable is bollix.
Incidentally, we already support "green suppliers" - we subsidise them heavily.
