Unless the United States, China, and the European Union (EU) step back from a mutually destructive trade war, the next decade for the solar industry could resemble the world economy in the 1930s.

How to Buy Green Electricity

This type of electricity tariff works by your energy supplier purchasing renewable energy that matches how much energy you use in the home, this can be just some of the energy you use or all of it. On your behalf, your energy supplier will be purchasing renewable forms of energy from sources such as hydroelectric power stations and wind farms. You can request information as to which sources have been included in the purchase made on your behalf and also what proportion of the supply you have received is renewable.

In a lot of cases the green tariff will state that the energy they are supplying to you is renewable but they will only be assigning you the compulsory amount of renewable energy that they are already required to supply you with. This will reduce the amount of renewable energy that they are providing to their other customers and will not increase the amount of renewable energy that is being circulated around the UK.
