Six big reasons to switch

More homes than ever in Jersey are enjoying the benefits of electric heating.

Almost all new properties are now 100% electrically powered and heated, and the number of customers switching from oil or gas heating is accelerating.

Thinking of making the switch? See our six big reasons why you should.

1. Electric is easy

Switch on to electric and switch off the hassle.

Say hello to a permanent electricity supply that's always on. Say goodbye to leaks, checks and refills of that unsightly oil tank. Plus, all your energy needs covered in one bill.


2. 100% efficient

We don't do waste.

Every unit of energy you pay for is converted into heat, with no emissions out of the boiler flue - electric boilers don't even need one! You can't do better than that ... Can you?

3. Smarter heating

The latest innovations are electric.

Think radiators you can control from your phone or Alexa. Or heat pumps that capture renewable heat from the air, and deliver up to five units of heat for every one unit of electricity used – up to 500% efficient!

4. Low carbon life

Cut carbon, comfortably.

Our local electricity emits 10-12 times less carbon dioxide per unit than fossil fuels such as oil or gas. One third of that electricity is sourced from the Rance tidal power barrage near St Malo. Electric heating will slash your carbon footprint without compromising on comfort.
