Broadband provider Gigaclear has switched to a 100% renewable electricity provider.

It has struck a deal with UK supplier Ecotricity, which will provide green power to its existing network of 82 broadband sites.

Gigaclear specialises in connecting rural communities to high speed internet, connecting 35,000 properties to date.

Ecotricity said it will also be working with the firm to install smart meters, helping track its energy consumption and reduce bills.

Dale Vince, Founder of Ecotricity said: “Switching to green energy is the biggest single thing – and the easiest thing – that any business can do to cut the emissions that cause air pollution and climate change.

“By switching to green energy, Gigaclear will reduce the environmental impact of their own operations, while supporting Britain’s energy independence and the green economy.”
