iSupplyEnergy, based in Bournemouth, aims to donate £25,000 by signing up 1,000 new customers by the end of March 2020. Local residents can switch to any of the company’s energy plans, which include 100% renewably generated electricity as standard. Its longer-term energy plans also include 100% carbon neutral gas, where emissions from gas use are offset by investments in carbon reduction projects.
Ian Cain, Managing Director at iSupplyEnergy said, “Dorset Wildlife Trust does amazing work enhancing the environment and engaging communities in our local area. We’re so excited to be able to help its staff and volunteers continue this activity. For anyone living in the BH postcode, this is a great opportunity to do something positive for Dorset’s wildlife and switch to affordable green energy – a double win for the environment, as well as a potential saving on bills.”
Sally Cooper, Corporate Development Officer from DWT said, “It’s a real pleasure to work with a company that has a shared vision to make Dorset a greener place. We are very grateful for their donations, where 100% of the proceeds will go into conservation work in Dorset, caring for our wildlife and wild spaces.”
While the £25,000 fundraising offer started on 21 October, iSupplyEnergy’s relationship with Dorset Wildlife Trust began earlier in the month, with a volunteering day on Brownsea Island. The BH postcode includes Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole, as well as Purbeck, Wimborne, and Ringwood. Money donated by the company will be ring-fenced to the Trust’s BH postcode nature reserves, for example improving accessibility on Brownsea Island as part of the ‘Wild Brownsea’ project.
