Exclusive tariff will offer an average household saving of £265 per year and £22 additional bill credit 

20th August 2020comparethemarket.com has launched an exclusive 100% renewable electricity energy tariff with Pure Planet, costing £862 for the average consumption household.  
To aid eco-conscious customers in their search for greener energy providers, comparethemarket.com recently launched a new renewable filter that allows people to filter energy deals that only include renewable energy. 
The ‘100% Green 12m Fixed’ tariff from Pure Planet is £265 cheaper than the current energy price cap level of £1,127.  
The exclusive offer is only available for new Pure Planet customers through comparethemarket.com’s website between 18 August and 4 September 2020. The exclusive also comes with a £22 bill credit that is applied automatically to the customer’s bill.  
The tariff will be a fixed price for one year and comes with 100% renewable electricity as standard, utilising resources like wind, solar and biomass. It also offsets 100% of households’ gas use. 
Consumer demand for greener energy is on the rise: comparethemarket.com’s latest energy snapshot reveals that in June more than 70% of all switches were to tariffs that offered customers 100% renewable electricity. 

Peter Earl, head of energy at comparethemarket.com, said:

“The number of people switching to tariffs that source their energy from renewables is on the rise. Our exclusive tariff with Pure Planet is competitively priced and a great option for people keen to go green this summer. Locking in a good value fixed-price one-year deal will doubtless appeal to households concerned that energy prices could rise this autumn.”
