Generating renewable energy

Renewable energy sources can heat your home while reducing your energy bills and your reliance on fossil fuels used to generate electricity.

Currently, 28% of the UK’s electricity comes from renewable energy, and this figure is set to grow over the next few years.

As well as helping the environment, making the switch to renewable energy can save you money. For example, installing solar energy panels could save you up to £240 a year on your energy bills, or two weeks’ worth of groceries for a family of four.
