A small energy company with a massive difference

Posted by Maryann Denfhy | 04/06/2013 | Category: Community


Co-operative Energy has only been trading for more than two years and has already made significant progress in its second full year of trading. They have tripled the size of its customer base during the course of the year alone! Co-operative Energy has also achieved two awards for ‘Best Energy Supplier Customer Service’ and ‘Utility Supplier of the Year’ at the 2013 Environment and Energy Awards.

Co-operative Energy entered the market when the time was ripe for an ethical energy supplier who can offer a viable alternative to the Big 6 energy suppliers. By applying co-operative values and principles to the job of selling energy, Co-operative Energy has quickly become established as a provider whom people can trust.

Energy is as vital to our lives as clean air and water yet the public has been poorly served by large corporations who have put profit before principles. Co-operative Energy continues to invest heavily in the infrastructure of our fast growing business to ensure that we maintain excellent customer service.

As well as offering simple, competitively priced tariffs, they attach great importance to their low carbon buying policy. They focus their purchasing efforts on renewable energy generators, especially community owned schemes which are springing up around the country.

Co-operative Energy are already the second largest of the independent energy suppliers and they are confident that we will soon be the largest! Together, the independent suppliers have doubled their share of the domestic market in the last 12 months, but it still stands at a lowly 2% so there is a very long way to go. Despite Co-operative Energy’s small size, our challenger status means that their campaigns have had a noticeable impact on the industry.

We are at the forefront of an energy revolution, promoting our co-operative model which puts our customers first. With your support we will continue to lead by example and improve the energy industry in the UK, for the good of all consumers.
