PFP Energy Fuel Mix Disclosure

All suppliers, including PFP Energy, are required to provide information about the mix of fuels they use to generate the electricity they supply to their customers. They also need to disclose the environmental impact of this fuel mix.

This information is known as the Fuel Mix Disclosure and is published annually.

Shown below are PFP Energy’s Fuel Mix Disclosures for the latest reporting year as well as previous years. We will update this page with the latest Fuel Mix Disclosures as they become available.

PFP Energy stated policy on renewables is summarised as:

“We buy energy from existing suppliers and generators. As such we don’t have full control over how sustainable our energy is. We aim to strike the best balance between low prices and reducing carbon emissions over time.”
