The oldest and newest balloons of the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta

Europe’s very first modern hot air balloon was inflated in Bristol this morning (10/7/17) to mark 50 years since its first flight.

To celebrate the anniversary, the Bristol Belle was tethered alongside its modern equivalent – the Bristol Energy solar balloon - the first in the world to take passengers on a flight powered by the sun.

Switch and support our flying heroes

Quote GWAAC when you switch and we'll donate £30 to Great Western Air Ambulance

Bristol Energy is proud to support this year’s Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, and its official charity, Great Western Air Ambulance (GWAAC).

We'll donate £30 every time someone switches using the code GWAAC.

The Critical Care Team is available seven days a week, 365 days a year and attends more than 100 incidents every month.

Although it provides a vital, lifesaving service and is part of the regional 999 network, the GWAAC receives no day to day Government or Lottery cash.

What is my supply point number?

The supply point number given is used to help energy companies complete the switching process and for the companies that distribute your electricity or gas (local network operators) to identify you.

For electricity this is called a Meter Point Adminstration Number (MPAN) or for gas a Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN).

The first number on the bottom line identifies which network distribution supply region you are in - this is also stated on your bill under the emergency numbers.
