Peterborough Energy gets greener

You’re probably aware of all the great reasons to join Peterborough Energy, but if you’re not it’s worth reminding you that you can save £233* on average on your energy bills, receive £20 vouchers for every friend you refer, as well as earn 3% interest if your account is in credit.

More than 5,700 Peterborough residents have already switched to Peterborough Energy, which is powered by OVO Energy, who scooped the 2016 Best Renewable Energy/Energy Efficiency Award at the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) Awards. In addition to all of the great social and economic benefits of Peterborough Energy, the fuel mix is also one of the more environmentally friendly options available on the market.

OVO Energy continually look to reduce the carbon footprint of its tariffs year on year. Whilst OVO do not generate their own electricity and instead buy it from the energy market, they are always seeking the greenest energy at the best possible prices.

Over the past three years, OVO Energy have reduced their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 62.3% to 183 grams of CO2 per kilowatt hour. This is a whopping 36.9% lower than the national average.

The good news doesn’t end there though. OVO Energy do not use any nuclear power and therefore aren’t responsible for any high level radioactive waste, and nor do they hide any of their fuel mix in the ambiguous ‘other’ category. The remaining 46.9% of electricity generated from non-renewables is all natural gas after the company ditched coal in 2015, further helping the reduction of CO2 emissions.

Peterborough Energy have also teamed up with Green Energy Switch to offer Home Visits to residents of the city. As well as assisting residents with their switch, the Home Visits team offer an energy saving pack filled with advice and goodies such as an energy efficient lightbulb to help everyone live a low energy lifestyle.

For more information about Peterborough Energy and to see how much you can save by switching visit www.peterboroughenergy.co.uk, or arrange a Home Visit by calling 01733 646272. Alternatively, call 0800 408 6706 for Pay Monthly, or 0800 408 6710 for Pay As You Go.


*£233 is the average saving of dual fuel pay monthly customers that have actually switched to Peterborough Energy between 01/05/15 - 31/09/16; individual savings will vary according to current supplier, location, consumption and Peterborough Energy tariff options. Should you change your mind about switching, you will have 14 days from the date of sign up to cancel your contract.
