“Two thirds of Germans demand honest power labelling”

Lichtblick / Greenpeace Energy / others

It is important to see from which sources the electricity from household electricity providers originate, say 62 percent of respondents in a survey by YouGov. Green power companies Lichtblick, Greenpeace Energy and others commissioned the survey and demand a reform of power labelling to better reflect the actual sources of the electricity, the companies write in a press release. “Consumers are misled. The whole sector should promote a transparent power labelling and end the fraudulent labelling,” said Gero Lücking, director at Lichtblick.
