What is green electricity?

Green electricity is generated from renewable sources such as wind, solar or hydro. What defines a renewable energy source is one that can be replenished at the same rate as it is being used, typically from natural sources like the sun, wind or water.

Green electricity in Northern Ireland which is generated largely by wind is becoming a more popular alternative to non-renewable sources as they are carbon neutral. This means that they do not release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and therefore reduce the damage to our environment.

  • Who can switch to eco energy?

    New and existing Power NI home energy customers can make the switch to Eco Energy tariff. Our Eco Energy tariff is available to credit and Keypad customers. Eco Energy is not available for Economy 7 customers.

  • Will eco energy increase in price?

    Our Eco Energy tariff costs the same as our standard Home Energy tariff and the same discounts apply depending on how you prefer to pay (e.g. by monthly Direct Debit or pay as you go). Currently, any changes in pricing to the Home Energy tariff will be reflected in the Eco Energy tariff.

  • How does green electricity get to my house?

    There is no difference in the electricity that is supplied to your home. Individual properties cannot be targeted to receive Eco Energy only. By signing up to Eco Energy, Power NI commits to purchase the equivalent of your consumption from renewable sources.

    • What happens if the wind does not blow??

      Your electricity supply will not be affected. When you sign up for Eco Energy, we make a commitment to match your electricity needs by purchasing an equivalent amount of renewable power. In very simple terms, we add up all our Eco Energy customers units and ensure sufficient renewable energy is purchased to cover this, in line with our obligation. The electricity you are receiving into your house is made up of a mix of fuel types and different renewable technologies (not just wind).
