How does Energia generate gas and electricity?
The Commission for Regulation of Utilities (CRU) requires that electricity suppliers disclose the sources they use to generate their energy each year.
Energia has been recognised by the CRU for having 100% renewably-sourced “green” energy for the last five years in a row, and is the only one of the larger energy suppliers to achieve this.
