Milan, April 22nd, 2010 Energia Tutto Compreso, Enel Energia's energy plan that offers families a fixed price for the entire year, inclusive of all items in the bill (excluding taxes and VAT), becomes the first completely "environmentally sustainable" offer in the country.
Thanks to an operating procedure for managing supplies from plants powered by renewable resources developed and certified by Enel Energia in collaboration with a certification body, those who sign up for Energia Tutto Compreso Green will know that their electricity is being generated entirely from renewable resources.
Even the CO2 produced by issuing bills and generation plants will be offset through a an emissions reduction system.
But that's not all. To reward careful use of electricity each year even more, all customers whose total use of electricity does not exceed the ceiling for the standard annual consumption level they have selected will receive a free month of standard consumption. Those who do not exceed their monthly level at any time for a year will receive two free months of standard consumption.
The gas sector will also offer a bonus rewarding the informed use of natural gas: all customers who stay within their contractual standard consumption level for the year will receive a month of standard consumption for free. They will also receive a 50% discount on the price of their standard consumption level for the summer months.
There are four levels of standard consumption - Small, Medium, Large and Extralarge from which customers can choose the solution that best suits their habits, both for electricity and gas. Choosing the most appropriate level is simple: the website enelenergia.it allows customers to select their level using a simulator, helping them optimise their choice. And if they choose the wrong "size", it can be changed at absolutely no charge.
"With the new Tutto Compreso range, Enel confirms its constant attention to environmental issues and energy saving", says Gian Filippo Mancini, Head of Enel's Sales Division. "For the first time in Italy, families have the opportunity to sign up for a plan for electricity produced entirely from renewable resources, with zero CO2 emissions. With the bonus granted for the entire duration of the contract, we want to give our customers a tangible benefit and share our concern for the careful, informed use of energy. It represents a development in our flagship products in the direction of the fundamental values that guide our strategies: environmental responsibility, quality, simplicity, convenience and friendliness, to consolidate our leadership and confirm our growth rates in the residential market."
