Ekklesia : Quakers use group buying power to support renewable energy

Ekklesia reports that:

A new scheme called the Renewable Energy Group Buying Initiative (REGBI) launches today (16 January 2014) to help Quaker meeting houses, churches and charities buy renewable energy collectively.

The REGBI scheme enables its members to buy 100% renewable electricity (supplied by Good Energy) on an annual joint contract to show support for renewable energy while also keeping costs down by benefiting from group purchasing discounts.

The scheme was created and is administered by 2buy2, a procurement service helping churches and charities save money throughout the UK.

Quaker headquarters at Friends House in London and 37 Quaker meeting houses have already joined the REGBI scheme and it is hoped that REGBI’s group purchasing power will grow, with more meeting houses, church buildings and charities signing up annually.
