  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Generation Choose Renewable Energy or Purchase Renewable Energy Credits
    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your ZIP code, region, and/or state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    I have used various small renewable electricity suppliers for years now. Want to work out how to get a renewable (anaerobic digestion etc) gas supply - I believe it is becoming more of available now. e.g:-
    https://www.ecotricity.co.uk/our-green-energy/our-green-gas/what-is-green-gas

    https://www.greenenergyuk.com/

    Current supplier offsets the carbon from the fossil gas that we use.

    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    We decided to drive to France for a holiday instead of flying. Once we worked out that it would only take us 4 hours longer to drive,  give us much more flexibility and allow us to take more kit it was an easy decision to make.
