The easiest way to convert to renewable energy in your home is probably to get in touch with your current supplier and ask them about their green plan, as most have one (we have included links to some of them at the bottom of this page).
However, you should bear in mind that the Government has imposed an obligation on electricity suppliers to source a specific and annually increasing percentage of the electricity they supply from renewable sources (see BERR website for more information). Consequently, joining one of these plans may not result in any additional 'green' energy being produced.
The greenest option is therefore likely to be to choose a dedicated green supplier below.
