We have started this business as we were frustrated and confused by the big 6 energy companies. When we tried to find the best deal for our personal gas and electricity needs we found there were a multitude of tariffs with lots of different discounts and loyalty bonuses, which were difficult to understand. So we set about trying to understand the energy supplier industry and what exactly is involved with setting up a small company with the idea of offering a service to friends and family at a competitive price.
It became clear pretty quickly that offering the service to just friends and family would not be enough to keep the prices low and pay all the costs involved in the energy supplier industry. So, our aim is still to offer competitive prices but we now want to offer our service to the wider community with the aim of becoming big enough to cover those costs and make a small profit.
We believe in being a good ‘corporate citizen’ which means that when we employ staff to provide a quality service for our customers, we think those staff should come from our local community and be based here and not in some far-off call centre. Our company is based in our local community and we believe in keeping things simple
We also believe in paying our corporate and personal taxes in the UK and not diverting any profits out of the UK through a subsidiary based in an off-shore tax haven.
We believe in giving something back and we will endeavour to make meaningful contributions, that produce a real outcome, to our community when our business can do so.
