Company: Bulb

Website: https://bulb.co.uk/

Founders: Hayden Wood and Amit Gudka

Business: Founded in 2016, Bulb has set about fixing the problems in the old energy industry; poor service, expensive tariffs, dirty energy and inefficiency. Bulb is leading the way in making those changes by doing three simple things:

  1. Being simpler – One simple tariff for everyone, you can sign up in 2 minutes and if you have a problem you can speak to a person.
  2. Being greener – using 100% renewable energy like solar, hydro and wind, and all Bulb’s gas is 100% carbon neutral.
  3. Being cheaper – Bulb invests in Technology that reduces their costs and passes savings on to customers.

Every year, the average Bulb member saves 3.5 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. That’s like planting 1,770 trees. Bulb uses green, renewable energy from independent suppliers and buys their energy from them to pass on to customers. But beyond being green Bulb also offers a fantastic customer experience, with an easy to use app that lets you keep track of your energy so you know what you’re using. It turns out people use an average of 10% less energy when they know what they’re using so beyond being convenient it will likely save you some money too.
