Green electricity prices for your Church
100% green electricity. And lots of choice.
Our green electricity is now a similar price to standard electricity. Several suppliers generate their own electricity. While some suppliers will purchase electricity from other renewable generators. We have plenty of options for your Church.

Are green church electricity prices more expensive?
Perfect Clarity have been instrumental in making green electricity prices for churches easily accessible. We understand church finances can be tight.
Your Church committee may prefer to simply choose the lowest electricity price available, regardless of whether this is green electricity or standard. We will present a range of options so you can see any premium and make a fully informed decision.
Green electricity can occasionally be the cheaper option, depending on market movement.
The green premium is so much lower than it used to be. In fact, there is often little difference these days between the two. Given that churches use a relatively low amount of electricity (compared to gas), choosing a green electricity tariff won’t necessarily mean a leap in the annual cost.
Going green could even save your Church money. At worse, add a little to your annual bill.
Perfect Clarity understand the jargon and have their finger on the pulse with current prices, provisions and suppliers. Perfect Clarity can save time and effort in attempting to find the best deal.”

Sustainable Churches across the UK
An obvious benefit of choosing a green electricity tariff for your church, is your pledge to help the environment. Going green reduces the carbon footprint of your church and is encouraged by the Church of England.
Once you make the decision to opt for green electricity, your church immediately becomes more sustainable. As an organisation at the heart of the local community, the church will be setting an example for others to follow.
By choosing a green electricity contract for your church, you are investing in the generation of renewable electricity over fossil fuels and nuclear power.
Is green electricity different from normal electricity?
A common question! Green electricity is produced from renewable sources including wind, solar and tidal. This is then fed into the grid along with electricity from other sources. By ‘going green’ you are helping to fund more generation of renewable electricity, instead of fossil fuels, so helping the planet and the environment.
Church electricity prices
It wasn’t that long ago (2012/13), that electricity prices were around 8p or 9p per kWh.
How times have changed.
Electricity prices started rising slowly, and simply became more volatile. The electricity market is a complicated beast, with a multitude of factors working together. However, we have outlined the main protagonists below.
Gas prices are rising
Gas and electricity prices are closely linked. We use gas to generate electricity. In fact, as much as 40% of our electricity generation is from gas. So when gas prices increase, you can see the effect it will have on your Church electricity prices.
Unfortunately, with North Sea gas reserves falling, the UK is importing much more gas from abroad. This is mainly in the form of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) which arrives in enormous tankers, and comes at a premium.
Distribution costs & Government levies
The price your church pays for each kWh of electricity, can roughly be split in half. One half is the wholesale price, the other half consists of network and distribution costs.
Suppliers are charged by the Grid for the use of the infrastructure that transfers energy to homes and businesses. These charges contribute to maintaining and operating this complicated system. These prices are updated every April.
Government levies are mainly green schemes to encourage generation of electricity from renewable sources. See a list of the main distribution charges and levies here. They have risen from 35% of the price of a unit of electricity, to nearly 50%. And are predicted to increase further.
