The UK government has launched an exciting new scheme which aims to encourage people to make their homes warmer and more energy efficient. Homeowners, landlords and tenants could benefit. People who meet certain eligibility criteria may qualify for FREE energy saving home improvements and for those who don’t, there’s an affordable way to make homes more energy efficient without having to pay all the costs upfront, through the Green Deal.
The world is waking up to the very real challenges we all face as a result of global warming and the associated change in climate that’s occurring.
Energy is npower’s business and we recognise our great responsibility to work with both the Government and customers to help reduce some of the causes of climate change. That’s why we’re committed to encouraging customers to use less! We’re one of the UK’s largest generators of green energy and are also supporting the development of new carbon-free and renewable energy sources for the future.
As Britain’s brightest energy company, we’re dedicated to pursuing new ways of producing green energy and promoting its use among our customers – we’ve called it New Energy.
npower juice is electricity that is 100% matched with renewable sources, at no extra cost to you. We make sure that at the end of the year, through regularly estimating your consumption that we have provided enough clean, renewable energy to cover what you’ve used.
npower also invests on your behalf through the Juice fund, to support community based renewable generation projects, which help make a positive difference which would not have otherwise have happened, which in turn, helps to support our additional Ofgem Green Supply Guidelines environmental commitment. Tens of thousands of households have already made the switch from standard electricity to npower juice, and the great news is that it costs no more than npower's standard electricity with no premiums.
Between April 2010 and March 2011 the electricity npower supplied was from the following fuel sources:
npower solar can provide all the expertise to help you become more self sufficient by installing solar PV panels to make electricity for your home. What’s more npower will purchase any electricity you generate plus any electricity you export when you join our Feed-in Tariff scheme. Click here for more information.
We’re also working hard to help you save energy – after all, the greenest unit of energy is the unit you don’t use. Click here for easy ways to save on energy – and also save on bills.
You can take our Home Energy Survey and we'll use your answers to calculate the energy rating, running costs and carbon footprint for your home. We'll then use your answers to assess where you could improve your energy efficiency and make some recommendations that may help you to achieve this.
Global warming is occurring because the planet is heating up as the result of too much carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere. A major source of carbon comes from burning fossil fuels for energy – for example, to heat our homes or run our cars. The carbon rises up to the earth’s upper atmosphere where it acts like an insulating coat, reflecting heat from the sun back to the earth’s surface.
This is beginning to have an effect on our climate with potentially damaging consequences. For example, ice caps are starting to melt at the Poles, which could cause sea levels to rise, and higher temperatures and less rainfall are being recorded in areas which already suffer from drought.
Juice: npower Juice is electricity that is 100% matched with renewable sources....at no extra cost to you... The electricity you receive remains the same. npower matches every unit of normal electricity you use and feeds the same amount, generated from renewable sources, back into the electricity network. We estimate your Juice consumption regularly, which helps us make sure that, at the end of the year we’ve provided enough clean, renewable energy to cover what you’ve used. Simple. In addition, for every Juice customer we have, npower contributes a donation of £10/person to the Juice Fund for every year our customers continue to use Juice. The Juice fund is then used to support community based renewable generation projects, which provide a real environmental benefit.
