100Green Business Energy
100Green offers business energy contracts for existing companies and property developers who need new connections. It is the first UK electricity supplier to be certified by EKOenergy, a European eco-label that guarantees that its electricity fulfils strict environmental criteria and raises funds for new renewable energy projects; it is also the first UK supplier to supply 100% green gas.
Originally called Green Energy UK (GEUK) 100Green has been supplying green energy to British households and businesses for over 20 years. The company invests in a wide range of technologies including small-scale hydro, CHP, organic waste gasification, vegetable oil and pig waste.
In 2016 it became the first UK energy supplier to provide 100% green gas to residential and business customers, two years after adding gas supply to its portfolio and launching a duel fuel bundle in 2014.
In 2023, the energy supplier re-branded to 100Green.
Given its focus from the beginning on sustainable consumption and supply, 100Green extends its ethical business values to its customer service interactions. It doesn’t use answer machines, responding live to all calls with minimum wait times.
It carries out customer ‘health checks’ on their accounts from time to time to ensure they don’t build up credit or debit balances and if they do accrue, it tries to work with customers to resolve them.
It has also introduced Variable Direct Debits for domestic customers so they only pay for what they consume in the month. In 2017, it affirmed its commitment to not do door-step selling, preferring potential customers to make an informed decision when choosing to switch based on their requirements — in terms of service, ethics, price and “greenness”, without the “hard sell” of door-to-door sales.
100Green Smart Meter
TIDE is an online-only smart meter service featuring free installation of gas and electric Smart Meters and substantially discounted rates based on the time of day. It is only available as a dual-fuel bundle.
100Green’s next-generation meters are industry-compliant and work across all of its tariffs (and other energy companies, too). Once installed, customers can take advantage of time-of-day tariffs like TIDE, putting them in control of consumption and helping them save money.
Smart Meters monitor energy usage, automatically sending readings to the supplier, eliminating estimated energy bills and allowing customers to see and control their energy usage.
Customers with Solar PV installed can also save up to save up to £285 per year by using a Powervault home battery.
Other 100Green Meters
100Green also offers tariffs for homes with Economy 7 and Economy 10 meters.
Billing is monthly with payment by direct debit. Online/email-only billing is required for the TIDE smart meter plan, but it is available with all services. Customer reviews report that 100Green’s bills are simple, clear, and easy to understand.
Customers can download the Green100 app from the App Store and from the Google Play store respectively.
