New renewable energy option unveiled

New renewable energy option unveiled
Green gas is being offered to UK householders for the first time.

Ecotricity, the world's first green electricity organisation, is generating the pioneering energy option using a mixture of green and traditional 'brown' sources.

According to the company, residents will not have to pay additional costs for the green fuel and it has also pledged to match British Gas' standard gas and dual-fuel charges for each area.

"Nobody has to carry on giving their money to the big multinational energy companies, who seem determined to keep burning whatever in the world they can get their hands on like there's no tomorrow," said Ecotricity founder Dale Vince.

"By choosing green gas, customers can help unhook Britain from its addiction to foreign gas supplies, make a positive long-term change to the world we live in, and could also keep thousands of tonnes of waste out of landfill."

Green gas is made using materials that are often dumped in landfill sites, such as food waste, to generate electricity.

Currently, Britons throw away around 18 million tonnes of food a year, however, green gas production could transform this into enough energy to power more than 700,000 homes annually.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19478025-ADNFCR
