100% renewable electricity

We supply all our members with 100% renewable electricity and 10% green gas. When you switch to Bulb, we make sure that for every unit of electricity you use, a unit is produced and put on the grid by a renewable source like Oak Grove Solar Farm in Monmouthshire. In addition, 10% of our gas comes from biomethane. That's gas produced from organic matter like sewage and manure - which is then reinjected onto the grid (minus the smell).

Independent generators

We buy our energy from independent renewable generators from across the UK, like Gail and Miles from Old Walls Hydro in Dartmoor. Wherever possible, we have direct relationships with these generators to purchase their output. To cover any shortfalls, we purchase renewable energy on the wholesale market. Our energy sources vary from solar and wind to hydro or anaerobic digestion. They're a pretty impressive bunch, our generators.

One low tariff for all. Phew

Too many energy companies confuse customers with lots of complicated tariffs. We like to keep things simple.

With Bulb's single tariff, you know you're getting the best possible price for your energy. In fact, we're one of the cheapest suppliers on the market, renewable or not.

The most trusted energy supplier

For us, giving great service is first, last and everything. We're chuffed to be the UK's #1 rated energy supplier on Trustpilot.

The best kind of energy

Which do you choose: energy that harms the planet or energy that doesn't? Exactly. 100% of Bulb's electricity is renewable, and 10% of our gas is too.

Every year, the average Bulb member saves 1.3 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. That's the same as planting 655 trees.
