What fuels are used to generate my electricity?

The energy provided by Angelic Energy is supplied by our partner, Robin Hood Energy.

Their focus has always been on serving their customers rather than generating their own power. Instead, Robin Hood Energy buy from the energy market, and from generators themselves, across the UK. Our plan is to keep reducing the carbon emissions over time, while still offering you the best value.

All suppliers, including Robin Hood Energy, are required by the energy market regulator Ofgem to provide information about the mix of fuels used to generate the electricity supplied to customers, as well as any environmental impact.

Known as the Fuel Mix Disclosure, our partner, Robin Hood Energy, must publish this information annually after they have been a supplier for 12 months. Their first Fuel Mix Disclosure was for the period 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017, and can be found below.
