If you are with a company that guarantees that all your energy comes from renewable source, how can they justify increasing the price to the same level as fossil fuel derived energy? The price of gas fired electricity has, of course, increased due to tensions in the gas supply chain. This is not the case for renewables. Are they just going to say that renewable prices will keep on simply matching fossil prices as they continue to spiral upwards due to increasing supply constraints?So why bother going with a green energy company?
Of course I haven’t signed up for such a thing, but had I done I would perhaps be expecting that whatever premium I had paid would in fact be recouped at a time when fossil fuels are on the increase.
If there were such a deal where I could sign up for renewables at cost plus a sensible margin I might be tempted.
