It’s increasingly important for businesses to know how the electricity supplied to them is generated. Whether your business has to report its carbon emissions or not, it’s still important to understand where that electricity comes from and how its generation impacts our environment.
Like all of the UK's major electricity suppliers, SSE’s standard fuel mix comes from a combination of generation assets. Our standard fuel mix reflects both the electricity created by our own generation assets and the electricity we purchase to meet customer demand.
We can provide electricity that’s backed by Ofgem’s Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin scheme which helps businesses to report zero carbon emissions for the electricity they purchase.* Our fixed price electricity plans include 100% renewable energy from SSE's wind farms and hydro plants.
Once our renewable supply has been allocated to SSE Green, what remains is the residual fuel mix for customers choosing our conventional supply products.
*Backed by a ‘Renewable Electricity Guarantee of Origin’ where consumption used is matched to an equivalent volume generated by SSE's wind and hydro assets then exported to the National Grid.
