Doing our bit

Helping to protect the Amazon Rainforest

GET Solutions are aiding the protection of trees in the rainforest against illegal loggers and ranchers by drinking coffee!

We’ve been in partnership with Cool Earth through 2015/16 and are extremely proud to announce that we’ve protected 202 Tree’s with 219 tonnes of CO2 locked in.

As straight forward as it sounds, this has been achieved through simply drinking coffee! Our daily consumption of coffee has kept the whole office a lot more awake and greener at the same time.

Cool Earth aren’t just a coffee provider, they thrive on achieving a better future for the environment. Their main aim is to halt rainforest destruction that’s at a major threat from loggers by working alongside indigenous villages.

One Cool Earth project is the Lubutu project which involves working with five villages in eastern DR Congo to form a buffer for two neighbouring national parks. This project alone has sheltered 6.710 species of animal and protected 19 endangered species.

GET Switching

In the news today, is the launch of the cheapest dual fuel tariff with 100% renewable electricity on the market, and the best bit – it’s available from our new GET Rewards switching site.

This latest collective switch tariff from LoCO2 Energy can provide a saving on dual fuel bills of an impressive £239 from the big six standard variable tariff.

As a green energy deal with 100% renewable electricity, consumers can pocket the savings whilst helping the planet, a win-win! Furthermore, some of the money that is made from this tariff will be reinvested in new renewable energy projects.

Why should households Switch Supplier?

Currently about 70% of UK households are paying over the odds on energy suppliers ‘standard variable tariffs’ or out of contract rates.

Whenever families move home or their fixed term energy contract comes to an end, they are defaulted on to energy suppliers higher charging ‘standard variable tariff’. With 20.7 million households in the UK as of April to June 2015, the aggregated over payment figure by UK homeowners is approximately £2.9 Billion per year.

In a move to tackle this problem, the Competition and Markets Authority is looking for radical ways to encourage households to engage with the market and seek better deals which could provide typical savings of £200 per year.

DON’T STAY STATIC: Explore the market and see what’s available. For the period (30 Jul – 27 Sep) customers using our service saved an average of £200.32. The maximum saving was £2,537

SMEs overpay for energy

SMEs overpay for energy by £7 billion

Today it has been published that small and medium sized business may have overpaid for their energy by a staggering £7 billion in the last year alone.

The Competition and Markets Authority published its final recommendations in June, after finding that half of SME customers with one of the big six suppliers have not switched supplier in at least 5 years, and many of these have stayed with the same supplier for far longer.

Our advice for SME organisations

DON’T STAY STATIC: Explore the market and see what’s available. Business that don’t switch could easily find themselves on out of contract rates which moves the cost up to a premium level.

When exploring the market, be mindful that the cheapest cost per kWh, isn’t necessarily the cheapest deal. There are many elements that make up your bill and these can vary dependant on the supplier and push the overall cost up.

GET Advice: we offer independent impartial advice on a no-obligation basis, we can review your bills and advise which energy products and service suit your individual requirements, furthermore, we’ll do this on an annual basis, so you have peace of mind that you’re not part of this £7 billion pound statistic.
