'You can compare all suppliers available and select them according to whether they are green, how much savings they offer compared to the current supplier or what service rating they have.'


Save money the green way and raise up to £30 for Christian Aid, reports Mark Vickery

While we'd all like to be greener when it comes to the energy we use we'd expect green energy to cost us more. Surprisingly, this is often not the case.

Since the government has encouraged energy suppliers to produce electricity from more sustainable sources the amount of electricity generated from hydro electric, wind and biomass stations has increased to almost 5% nationwide.

There are many suppliers who offer green electricity tariffs which are competitively priced and in many cases still offer considerable savings from the standard suppliers in an area.

Christian Aid has teamed up with switchandgive.com, an independent Energywatch approved service that compares prices from all gas and electricity suppliers to enable you to find the most suitable supplier for you.

Switchandgive.com enables users to compare all suppliers available and select them according to whether they are green, how much savings they offer compared to the current supplier or what service rating they have. And Switchandgive.com will donate £10-20 to Christian Aid if you switch through them.

Phones

In addition Switchandgive.com offers a price comparison service for home phones where you can find out how much you can save with a wide range of suppliers like TalkTalk, One.Tel. & Alpha Telecom.

Many suppliers offer totally free calls at the weekends which could help the you save up to 50% on the cost of calls on your phone bill.

Some users who call abroad a lot may find they can save as much as 80%. Your line will still be supplied and maintained by BT, your calls will just be routed through a cheaper provider.

Thousands are switching every week, so why not take a look? Switchandgive.com we will donate £10 to Christian Aid for every switch.

Mrs Stevens of Worksop switched to a green electricity supplier in March this year and is set to save around £87 per year on her bills.

"After all the scaremongering I had heard I thought it would be complicated to switch supplier. In the end it took just ten minutes over the phone and I chose a green supplier for my electricity. I'm delighted Christian Aid will get £20 because they do so much good work around the world."

The service does not cost you a penny and Switchandgive.com will do all the hard work, like comparing a multitude of tariffs and rates, finding the best deal for you and completing the switch for you.

All you need to do is call them on 0800 074 074 3 or visit www.switchandgive.com/christianaid for your free no hassle quote.
