Why Go Green?
Benefits of Green Energy
While there are many sources of renewable energy, they all have incredibly important similarities in the fight against fossil fuels and nuclear power:
- It doesn’t run out
- There is no negative environmental impact
- It causes no harmful greenhouse gas emissions
- It produces no hazardous by-products
When used responsibly, we will be able to generate decades worth of power without using greenhouse gases and harming the environment.
About Wind Power
Wind power produces some of the cheapest renewable energy available on the market, making it a popular choice for green energy suppliers.
We believe there’s no better place for us to source our renewable energy from than right here in the UK, which is why we’re sourcing our green electricity from Carno Wind Farm in Wales, through our sourcing partner, Smartest Energy.
Carno Wind Farm
Carno Wind Farm is located on Trannon Moor, West of the Village of Carno in Powys, Wales. Opened in October 1996, the site sits 400 metres (1,300 ft) above sea level and is now a well-established landmark within the local area.
Carno II is a 15.6MW onshore windfarm, part of the Carno windfarm consisting of three separate farms – Carno I, II and III. Our energy is coming from Carno II, which has 12 1.3MW turbines and has been in operation since 2009. The wind farm produces enough energy to supply nearly 2000 micro businesses* with electricity for a year.
Renewable Energy Gives Back
As a sustainable energy provider, Carno Wind Farm provides us with the perfect offering. Not only is it backed by the OFGEM administered REGO scheme, but a substantial amount of money is also invested back into the local community.
Their community benefit fund has helped a wide variety of local groups and organisations, with plans to continue to invest in local projects for the lifetime of the windfarm.
