Power supplier Good Energy has been chosen to be the energy partner of the National Trust after the two companies signed an agreement today.
This means the energy firm will offer more than four million National Trust members, supporters and volunteers a chance to sign up for its supply of 100% renewable electricity for an initial period of three years. Good Energy will also give up to £40 to the Trust for each supporter who signs up to its gas and electricity tariffs as part of the agreement.
The supplier will also provide practical advice to help develop renewable energy projects at the National Trust’s sites across the UK. This includes wood-fired boilers to replace old oil heating systems, sustainable water power projects and solar to generate green electricity. This is expected to help the Trust meet its target to halve its use of fossil fuels by 2020.
Juliet Davenport (pictured), CEO and Founder of Good Energy said: “We believe that Good Energy shares many of the same values as the National Trust and its members. This partnership therefore provides us with an excellent opportunity to directly offer a significant number of potential target customers our market leading renewable electricity tariff and dual fuel offering.
“By providing practical expertise to the National Trust to help it meet its own objectives, we are also able to highlight the benefits of adopting renewable energy.”
