Our green initiatives

Our environmental initiatives and green tariffs make it easy for our customers to do their bit for the planet.

A shared belief

We set out to find our new brand ambassador, it was essential our ambitions and principales aligned. To have a passion for the environment, sustainable energy, and an altruistic sense of fairness.

Ben Fogle is the embodiment of these shared beliefs.

We supply 100% renewable electricity

Our Double Gold bundle means new customers who take all of our services can power their homes with 100% renewable electricity.**

We help fund green initiatives

The UW Foundation supports charities, including those with an environmental focus. We're working with Plastic Oceans UK to help combat plastic pollution. Funds raised support efforts to break habits and enable more informed attitudes and behaviours towards plastic use. Learn more about the UW Foundation here.

We install free smart meters

Smart meters can help customers to control their energy usage so they use less. It's a small part of leading the UK to a cleaner and more efficient energy system.

Thousands of new branches

We plant a tree for every new customer who takes all of our services.

That’s over 130,000 trees in the UW Woodland, or an area the size of 73 Wembley Pitches.
