Launch of UK's first dedicated heat pump tariff
Good Energy Group PLC, the 100% renewable electricity supplier and innovative energy services provider ("Good Energy" or "the Company"), announces it has launched the UK's first dedicated heat pump tariff.
The tariff has been designed to support customers take advantage of the new Green Homes Grant, a government scheme which offers homeowners up to £5,000 to install low-carbon and energy efficient improvements. The £2 billion scheme opened on 30th September and closes on 31st March 2021.
The technology is vital in the journey to net-zero emissions by 2050. Domestic heating alone contributes 15% of the UK's total greenhouse gas emissions with over 85% of Britain's home using gas central heating. Heat pumps allow homeowners to take the fight to climate change by generating their own heat, cutting carbon emissions, and potentially saving money on their energy bills.
Good Energy's new heat pump tariff, called Green Heat, offers low rates and zero standing charge over the winter months. This will help customers pay less to heat their home at a time of year they use their heat pump most intensively. During the summer months customers will pay a unit rate and a standing charge similar to Good Energy's existing standard variable tariff.
Juliet Davenport, CEO and Founder, Good Energy, said:
"We can't fight climate change without weaning ourselves off using gas to heat our homes. Today's launch of Green Heat will support people who want to do something about their climate impact by shifting to clean electricity.
The government's Green Homes Grant is an important first step towards creating the zero-carbon home of the future. Our new tariff will make the scheme go further and faster over the coming months."
