Six tips for a greener Christmas

With just a few little changes, it's easy to celebrate a Christmas that's kinder to the planet and your wallet!

Shop local

Still got presents to buy? Us too! Shop local and help keep your money in your local economies. If you live in Bristol, why not look at the Bristol Pound map of local shops that accept the city’s own currency.  And if you switch your gas and electricity using the code: BPOUND001 we’ll send you £B20 to spend – just in time for Christmas!

We’ll be here to look after you this winter

Last week, GB Energy ceased trading. We want to reassure our customers and anybody looking to switch to us, that you will be safe with us this winter.

When a supplier goes out of business nobody benefits. In a very competitive marketplace, treating customers fairly and responsibly is paramount. 

For us, this means not trying to grow too quickly, to ensure we can service our customers in the best way possible. And it also means protecting them – and us – against rising wholesale energy prices.
