A greener Greater Manchester will be better for everyone. It will mean cleaner air, better public transport, more green spaces, a thriving local economy, improved health, and homes and businesses that are warmer and cheaper to run. It will also allow us to play our part in helping to fight climate change. That’s why Greater Manchester Combined Authority has partnered with Big Clean Switch to help local homes and businesses switch to cheap, clean energy.

What is clean energy?

When we talk about ‘clean energy’ we mean power generated from renewable sources – sun, wind, water (rivers, tides or wave power) and biofuels (usually gas released by rotting food and agricultural waste). Unlike electricity generated by burning fossil fuels (oil, coal and gas), clean energy has little impact in terms of climate change and air pollution.

How do clean tariffs work?

Picture the National Grid like a bucket full of water.* When you’re on a renewable tariff, your supplier promises to match the amount you take out of the bucket by putting the same amount of clean water in. The more clean water that goes into the bucket (and the less dirty water), the cleaner the bucket, and therefore the Grid, gets.
* In reality of course, water and electricity shouldn’t mix!

Need some #GMCleanspiration?

We love clean energy, and we love Greater Manchester, so we’ve brought the two together in a new series of case studies showcasing environmental innovation and leadership from across the region. We’ll be adding to these over the weeks ahead – if you’d like to suggest a project or business, get in touch.

More power from your switch

Whenever anyone switches energy company through a third party like the Big Clean Switch, the supplier pays a commission. This doesn’t affect the price of the tariff, and we use our share to help pay for the Big Clean Switch campaign. Greater Manchester Combined Authority will use its share – around £19 when you switch both your gas and electricity – to help cover the costs of the campaign. Any surplus will be used for local energy efficiency projects.
