Our quarterly updates

Bristol Energy at the Lantern Parade

We‘re proud to be one of a new breed of smaller energy suppliers, providing a fairer deal and a way to support Bristol communities.

Wholly owned by Bristol City Council, we’re one of only two municipal energy companies in the UK. Our profits will be reinvested back into the city.

How are we doing?

Our customers:

As of 12th July 2018, we had around 130,000 customer meter points on supply with us. A customer meter point is someone’s gas or electricity meter.

This means we’re supplying around 76,000 households across the UK.

How much are they saving?

We save our customers on average around £173* per year on average on their energy bills.

Our energy:

How much renewable energy do you supply your customers?

For customers on our My Green Plus tariff: 100% renewable electricity and 15% green gas. Our green gas is produced entirely from Bristol sewage waste

We’re committed to growing the amount of green energy for all our customers, and we publish our fuel mix every year. We’ll get greener as we grow.

Our green energy comes from partnerships with renewable generators across the country. Whether it’s made from solar, wind, water or waste, we know the people who make our energy

We’ve also launched a Business Green tariff – 100% renewable electricity and 15% green gas for small and medium sized businesses nationwide. 

Our funding:

We are funded by Bristol City Council as our only shareholder.

Our profits will be delivered straight back to Bristol City Council. It won’t happen overnight, but we are set to deliver a profit to the council within the next four years, to support essential services. We can all be part of the solution.


*Projected average customer saving when switching gas and electricity supply to Bristol Energy based on Ofgem’s standard domestic consumption values.
