What we're looking for

We've teamed up with leading green energy company Ecotricity to fight climate change, protect wildlife and safeguard habitats. Climate change is one of the biggest threats to wildlife, and we want the UK to stick to its target for 15 per cent of energy supply to come from renewable sources by 2020. It's a massive task, but everyone can help by reducing their own carbon footprint. Quote "RSPB" when you switch your electricity and gas to Ecotricity and we'll receive a donation of up to £50.

The skills you need

If you switch your electricity and gas over to Ecotricity, they'll make a donation to help our conservation work! Switching to Ecotricity is the single biggest thing you can do to tackle climate change - and it's also the easiest. Call free on 08000 302 302 - just quote RSPB at the time of booking or visit their website. You can read more information about the partnership here.

What's in it for you?

You will have done your bit to support green energy by powering your home with energy from Ecotricity. Wherever you live in Britain, you can power your home with 100% Green Electricity and Britain's Greenest Gas, complete with their Frack Free promise. Depending on where you live, you might pay a few pounds less than the standard Big Six tariff in your region and we'll spend more of your bill than anyone else building new sources of green energy.
