Why choose us as your energy supplier?

The Co-operative Energy is different from other energy suppliers, because we’re run by our members. This means that our customers play a major role in everything from decisions on how our business is run, to where energy is sourced. After all, the co-operative way of working focuses on the people the service matters to most. So we care about the world we live in as much as you do. When it comes to energy, we’re dedicated to making a positive impact on climate change. We are driven to making the world a clean and manageable place for future generations.

We’re also different because of our promise to treat customers fairly. We give you the fairest, most uncomplicated and transparent costs and service we can, helping you save money on your energy in the long term. These are values that have been at the heart of our business for over 165 years. We’re passionate about sharing them with you.
