Our green initiatives

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

We supply green energy

Our green fixed tariff means new customers who take all of our services can power their homes with 100% renewable electricity.

We 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.

We install free smart meters

Customers who've already had smart meters fitted use less energy, saving 24,690 tonnes of CO2 per year. Equivalent to planting a forest almost as big as Blackpool.

We plant trees

We’ll fund the planting of a tree for every new customer who takes all of our services. That’s 100,000 trees in the next year, absorbing 20,000 tonnes of CO2.*

Watch our CEO, Andrew Lindsay, plant the first tree in Wales and discuss our commitment to the environment in the video below.
