Britons can cut their electricity bills, even make money, in switching to renewable energy

piggy-ban-renewablesif you feel like you’re getting taken for a ride every time you open up your energy bill then boycott the big six energy companies and switch to renewable energy today.

Battling the ‘Big Six’: The Best Way to Boycott Extortionate Charges from Energy Companies   Greener Ideal, Gabriella Johnson is JULY 18, 2013   “……the recent flag-UKpublication of a new in depth investigation into renewableenergy, ‘The Offshore Valuation’, has thrown out the gauntlet to renewable energy nay-sayers by attempting a complete economic evaluation of the offshore renewable energy resource available in the
UK, which produced some startling results.

Transforming UK Energy
According to the study, the UK could become a net electricity exporter and be generating the equivalent of a million barrels of oil by 2050 by developing just a third of the total tidal, wind and wave power available around the country.

This could have a huge number of benefits including insuring against the volatility of fossil fuel prices, creating over 140,000 new jobs and generating more than £30 billion in revenue through exporting electricity to Europe.

Another study published by PriceWaterhouseCoopers asserted that the
notion that renewable energy resources are too small couldn’t be more
wrong. The study found that in theory, a large scale solar, wind and
water energy system could supply the needs of the whole world, leading
to significant benefits financially and ecologically.
Battling the Big Six
Britain’s energy companies appear to have UK citizens over a barrel,
but there’s no reason why homeowners should pay extortionate fees for
energy when there are so many viable alternatives available that don’t
cost the Earth.

Transforming the UK’s energy production systems on a large scale will
require substantial costs initially, but when you offset this against
the savings made by utilising renewable energy, over time the cost of
initial installation is recouped.

In terms of households, it can seem like a lot of money to install
solar panels, a wind turbine or switch to a Biomass boiler, but when
you consider that within a relatively short space of time you could be
producing not only enough energy to power your home, but also a
surplus that you can sell back to the grid, it’s easy to see that
paying to transform your own home’s heating is a savvy investment. Or
if you want to make savings and help the environment in the quickest
and easiest way possible then switch to an eco-friendly energy
provider of which you’ll find several in the UK offering very
reasonable premiums.

So if you feel like you’re getting taken for a ride every time you open up your energy bill then boycott the big six energy companies and switch to renewable energy today.
