British green tariff proposed

Northern Electric and Gas is the latest British utility with plans to offer electricity customers power from renewables at a premium green tariff. Its proposed "Renewable Resources Contract" will initially be open only to domestic customers. For a 5% premium paid into an "eco fund," customers will be able to choose whether the surcharge is used to support new small-scale renewable generation or forestation projects. The eco fund is to be managed by an independent organisation to support community based projects, says Northern Electric. The company also guarantees that the electricity sold under the tariff will be from renewable generators that are not receiving any subsidy.
