Council Ownership

Bristol City Council Hall at College Green

We’re one of the UK’s first publicly owned energy companies, set up to provide an alternative income stream for Bristol City Council at a time of decreasing grants from central government.

We were also created to tackle fuel poverty and offer our customers a simple, fair and transparent alternative to the Big Six, in a market that is often perceived as broken and unfair to loyal customers.

We're a national supplier, with customers right across the country, saving £219 each on average per year.*

Bristol Energy Supports The Grand Appeal

Bristol Energy is proud to work in partnership with The Grand Appeal. This incredible charity works hard to raise money to support the 100,000 sick children and babies cared for at Bristol Children’s Hospital and Special Care Baby Unit every year. 

Quote “GrandApp1” when you switch to Bristol Energy and we’ll donate up to £30 to this very special charity that has been transforming lives for over 20 years.

British Gas raise prices by 12.5%

The British Gas price rise of 12.5% comes into effect today (15/9/17), hitting millions of customers.

The increase will affect people on a standard variable tariff, and estimates suggest it could collectively cost households £235 million.

To us at Bristol Energy, the British Gas price rise doesn’t make sense. The price of wholesale energy has come down not up. And at Bristol Energy we’ve kept our prices stable since last November.
