From now on all electricity supplied to Your Energy Sussex customers is certified as being sourced from UK-based wind and solar generators.
Your Energy Sussex made a commitment to provide a renewable energy tariff within a year when it launched in February 2018. This announcement goes a step further by helping all customers to make the switch to clean electricity and reduce their carbon emissions.
Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We are delighted to be able to make this announcement so soon after launch and to extend the offer of renewable electricity to all customers.
“This is a landmark moment because, for the first time, we will also be supplying some Sussex-generated energy from our own County Council-installed solar panels to Your Energy Sussex customers. This is something that we will increase in the future as we generate more energy from our solar farms or solar panels on our buildings.”
