100% Renewable Energy Goal Achieved:
100% Renewable Electricity and Gas Utility
Since 1998, Naturstrom AG has served as an independent utility in Germany, building, producing and delivering electricity and gas from 100% renewable sources. With more than 200,000 customers all over Germany, Naturstrom has thus far invested in more than 180 energy plants using renewable resources, including wind, solar, hydropower, and biomass. More than 1.3 Billion KW/h have been produced so far, which has saved 650 million kg Co2.
Part of the rate charge goes toward building new renewable energy facilities, with the aim of helping to eventually displace non-renewable energy generation in Germany.
