What are Shell's new energies and tariffs?
Shell Energy is a good option if you are looking to switch. Apart from offering 100% renewable energy deals for all your domestic and business needs, customers also get an exclusive 3% discount on fuel at Shell petrol stations across the UK. Shell also has its custom rewards program called Shell Go+ rewards, which gives customers exclusive deals and discounts. Two of its popular tariffs are:
Energy February 2022 Fixed Tariff
This is a fixed tariff that offers renewable electricity at a fixed rate, guaranteed to remain the same until 2022. Opting for this tariff also enrols you in the Shell Go+ rewards program and gets you a discount on Shell broadband. At around £82 per month, it is reasonably priced enough, especially when compared to the Big Six suppliers.
Go Further Tariff
The slightly more premium option, the Go Further tariff is one of Shell’s greener energy plans. For around £94 per month, you get access to 100% renewable energy, plus, additional carbon credits for electricity and gas. You will also get access to the Shell Go+ rewards program, plus an additional discount on Shell broadband.
