What Are Green Tariffs?

Many electricity suppliers offer a Green Tariff, often in response to regulation that requires a certain proportion of their energy to come from renewable sources.

The supplier does not have to actually produce any renewable energy to be able to offer a Green Tariff. Instead, under the Green Tariff, it can buy certificates equivalent to the renewable energy it is contracted to supply.
