Queen's Award to green power supplier

Europe's first and largest green electricity supplier, Ecotricity, has won The Queen's Award for Enterprise in a new Environmental Achievement category. Since being founded by Dale Vince in 1996, Ecotricity's turnover has risen from £13 thousand to over £50 million. Today, the company's customers include WWF-UK, The Millennium Dome, The Co-operative Bank, Thames Water and local authorities. Later this year, Ecotricity will also be available to domestic customers. "We have challenged the belief that products which are good for the environment have to cost more by supplying Ecotricity for the same price as brown electricity," says Vince.
