Co-op Energy has launched the Community Power tariff that will ensure all the electricity provided is sourced from community renewable energy projects. The tariff is the first of its kind in the UK according to the company, and will see the company look to projects like Southill Solar for renewably generated power. The project already works with Co-op Energy, powering around 1450 homes, and using the profits it makes to support other green community initiatives. According to Co-op Energy, the tariff will cost around £5 more a month than the standard tariff for a typical household. It will be part of a joint venture between The Midcounties Co-operative and Octopus Energy.
