Public ownership

Bristol City Hall building

77% of the public back the public ownership of energy*. And we're making it happen.

Putting people first

People care about their community, their well-being and where their money goes. Bristol Energy is one of the first municipally owned energy companies. We were created to offer our customers a fair, simple and transparent alternative to the Big Six whilst providing a major income stream for Bristol City Council at a time of decreasing grants from central government.

We’re proof that publicly owned energy can succeed. By switching to us you’ll be supporting local communities, renewable energy and our Fuel Good Fund that will help struggling families in fuel poverty.

Reinvesting in the community

The absence of traditional shareholders helps us keep our focus on serving the community. We’re working to achieve this by developing ways to address fuel poverty, encourage energy efficiency and support local renewable generators.

Profits reinvested in the city

As with any start-up business, we won’t make a profit right away, but we’re thrilled with the progress we’ve made so far.

Although we're owned by Bristol City Council, we're run independently by a team of energy experts working closely with the council.

Find out more about our mission to be a force for social good.

An investment to benefit communities

In a time of government cuts for local councils, including the end of the revenue support grant from central government in 2020, we exist to provide a strong and consistent revenue stream for Bristol – an investment that will benefit the city and its communities.

We're also creating jobs in Bristol.

Switch to positive energy

Energy is something we all have to pay for, but we want our customers to feel good knowing that the money they spend is positively reinvested, as opposed to lining the pockets of private shareholders.

By switching to Bristol Energy, you’ll be supporting a growing movement among local councils to find innovative ways of generating income for their constituencies.

And, if you live in Bristol, you’ll be supporting the city you love, too.
