Haven Power announces 100% renewable electricity in 2020 Fuel Mix Disclosure

14th October 2020

At Haven Power, we’re delighted to announce that our Fuel Mix Disclosure for the reporting period April 2019 to March 2020 is 100% renewable.

This means that all businesses who choose to partner with Haven Power receive 100% renewable electricity and can report zero carbon emissions under greenhouse gas (GHG) protocol, scope two. The average energy supplier sources just 38% of their electricity from renewable sources.

And, for the third year in a row, our product offering has been approved by EcoAct. EcoAct is an international consultancy that independently reviews our product offering, verifying that we’re 100% renewable.

We’re particularly proud of our renewable credentials this year. As businesses across the country have grappled with COVID-19 and its impacts, the majority of business leaders say that they’ve become more environmentally aware than they were before the pandemic.

As well as supplying 100% renewable electricity, we’re part of Drax, the UK’s largest single generator of renewable electricity. As such, we’re committed to ensuring a lower cost, zero carbon energy future for all.

Our electricity sources: A breakdown

Renewable electricity generators are provided with a government certificate for each unit of electricity produced. These certificates, known as Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs) or Guarantees of Origin (GOOs), demonstrate that the electricity generated comes from a renewable source.

These certificates are passed to energy suppliers when they purchase power from renewable generators. Energy suppliers must match each unit of electricity they supply with a REGO or GOO for their products or tariffs to be considered renewable.

We’re proud to be able to supply electricity to our customers which comes from sustainable, renewable, zero-carbon sources. We don’t buy any coal power.
