Green energy from Ecotricity

The world’s first green electricity company, Ecotricity, will donate money to CAFOD every time a CAFOD supporter switches to them.

Who are Ecotricity?

Ecotricity is a UK-based company and the world’s first green electricity company. Their mission is to change the way electricity is made and used in Britain. They offer 100 per cent green electricity and green gas.

All of Ecotricity's profits go back into their mission - meaning that they use their customers’ energy bills to fund the building of new sources of green energy – what they call ‘bills into mills’.

Why should I switch to renewable, green energy?

You can power your home with energy from Ecotricity no matter where you live in Great Britain. Using green energy will reduce your carbon footprint and by using Ecotricity you’ll be funding sustainable energy projects in Britain.

You get the greenest energy available in Britain, bar none.

You get the best customer service: they’ve had the lowest number of complaints in the industry for the last six years according to data from Ofgem – the acid test of good customer service in our industry. And they have topped the Which? Best Energy Company survey for two out of the last three years. 

And you get an ethical pricing policy, which means you always get their latest best price, no matter how you pay or when you switched – with no exit fees or penalties.

How does switching to Ecotricity help CAFOD?

Ecotricity will donate £40 to CAFOD when a supporter switches their electricity to Ecotricity, or £60 if they switch gas and electricity.

Why have CAFOD partnered with Ecotricity?

We‘re always looking new ways to help us live simply, sustainably and in solidarity with the world's poorest people. We’ve seen the devastating effects of climate change on communities around the world, and firmly believe that we need to prevent climate change.

Thousands of CAFOD supporters, covering every diocese and every constituency in England and Wales, have already supported our One Climate, One World campaign to tackle climate change. Renewable energy is an important part of reducing our carbon footprint, and by switching our energy, we show government that we want to see more support for renewable energy.
