Ecotricity promises to remain 'frack-free'

GREEN energy company Ecotricity has announced that the gas it sources for its customers will remain ‘frack-free’.
Fracking is the controversial process of extracting gas by drilling deep into the earth to release natural gas.
According to Ecotricity founder Dale Vince the company’s ‘frack-free gas’ promise gives householders and businesses the opportunity to object to the fracking industry with their energy bills.
“There are clear environmental risks involved with the hydraulic fracturing process which have been well documented in other parts of the world,” said Mr Vince.
“Briton's deserve transparency from energy suppliers and the choice to conscientiously object to the practice.
“The majority of people in Britain simply don’t want fracking to take place and we think they should be able to choose not to buy gas from such sources.
“Ecotricity’s gas supply now has its own guarantee of origin – it will remain ‘frack-free’ so our customers can be sure they will not be supporting the shale gas industry with money from their energy bills.”
