Ecotricity

Ecotricity

Ecotricity was founded in 1995 as the world’s first green electricity company, and now powers over 135,000 homes and businesses from a growing fleet of wind and sun parks. Operating as a 'not-for-dividend' company – where we use the money from our customers’ energy bills to fund the building of new sources of green energy. We like to refer to this as turning ‘Bills into Mills’ – energy bills into windmills.
