Fuels

What fuels are used to generate my electricity?

All energy companies are required to advise their customers about the mix of fuels they use to supply electricity to their customers and the impact it has on the environment.

The table below shows information on electricity that we supplied from 1st April 2017 to 31st March 2018, by our energy provider Robin Hood Energy.
