Eco Energy Tariff

What happens if the wind does not blow?

Your electricity supply will not be affected. When you sign up for Eco Energy, Power NI makes a commitment to match your electricity needs by purchasing an equivalent amount of renewable power. In very simple terms, Power NI add up all our Eco Energy customers units and ensure sufficient renewable energy is purchased to cover this, in line with its 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). As more and more customers switch to Eco Energy the percentage of renewables in this fuel mix will increase.
