Renewable energy

Saw an Ad the other day that got me thinking,
E-on say all their power comes from 100% renewable sources, so if you buy from them you are only using "green" electricity.
Do they fit some kind of filter to your meter only allowing their electricity through and blocking all that nasty fossil fuel burning/nuclear waste producing energy?

Re: Renewable energy

No they buy only green energy, the energy you are supplied with might not be green but by going with them you make sure they are only using green energy, if that makes sense!

Re: Renewable energy

I think EON offer customers 100% renewable if they want it, for no extra charge. They also sell non renewable energy.

The renewable energy used is then reconciled against the renewable energy available so you, the customer pay for renewable energy. EON or anyone else can always buy more renewable energy to sell on if it gets popular.
