Fuel mix disclosure

Liverpool Energy Community Company focuses on serving our customers rather than generating our own power. Instead, we buy from the energy market and from generators themselves across the UK. Our fuel mix reflects both the energy we buy directly and energy we buy from the market. This may not always be as green as we would like after the energy companies which own renewables and nuclear have used up their share.

Our plan is to keep decreasing the carbon emissions over time, whilst still offering customers best value.

From July 2018, all electricity provided by the LECCY is 100% green and is certified as being sourced from UK based wind and solar generators.

All suppliers, including Liverpool Energy Community Company, are required by Ofgem to provide information about the mix of fuels used to generate the electricity supplied to customers, as well as any environmental impact.

Known as the Fuel Mix Disclosure, our partner, Robin Hood Energy, must publish this information annually after they have been a supplier for 12 months. Their first Fuel Mix Disclosure is for the period 1st April 2016 to 31st March 2017 and is published in the table below:
