Green energy tariffs, which were considered expensive by the consumers, are actually cheaper. Most of the items in the top ten cheapest tariffs lists are the green ones this year. Whereas, consumers still misconceive renewable energy sources as a costlier one.
Some of the green energy providers such as Outfox the Market, Pure Planet, Bulb, Yorkshire Energy and People’s Energy have been successful in offering tariffs way lesser than the average default tariff, provided by UK’s largest energy’s suppliers. A difference of about 267 Euros and 354 Euros can be seen between the renewable and non-renewable sources.
Those superior energy suppliers which have withdrawn from green energy tariffs, now, also have resumed to renewables.
As per a survey, conducted by uSwitch a UK based price comparison Service Company, 42% of the consumers consider green tariffs much more luxurious than that of the conventional ones. While 38% are pondered for green tariffs. According to a survey conducted amid 2,000 adults, 29% of them were agreed to pay 50 Euros as premium. Nonetheless, about 30% of people do not rely on the unfamiliar renewable brands.
The rise of these cheap green deals was basically the idea of some small suppliers who wanted to distinguish themselves by showing that this is no more an expensive luxury and is easily affordable. Nevertheless, the concern rises about how green those resources are and how the energy suppliers will buy their renewable electricity.
