Supporting Community Energy

Community energy projects, solar panels and wind turbine

Communities all over the UK are developing innovative projects to help meet the UK’s energy challenges. We are committed to supporting community energy projects and investment in renewable energy generation.

Problems such as climate change and insecure energy supplies are hugely challenging. If we’re to solve them, we will all need to play our part - from individuals reducing their personal energy consumption to governments participating in international negotiations.

Bristol Energy launches My Bristol Tariff

Last night, the people of Bristol spread the positive glow of Bristol Energy on social media, taking photos of the glowing orbs covering College Green to mark the launch of the ‘My Bristol Tariff’, a highly competitive energy tariff exclusively for Bristol residents. 

As well as glowing orbs, projections were beamed onto sites on Park Street, Stokes Croft and North Street, to help spread the word about the tariff and the savings that can be made by the people of Bristol by switching to the new tariff.

The Warm Home Discount is a one-off annual payment of £140 (including VAT) to help customers who are struggling to pay their electricity bills.

 

Am I eligible for the Warm Home Discount?

As a voluntary supplier we can only offer the Warm Home Discount to our customers who are in the Core Group.

The Core Group is made of people in receipt of the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) tells energy suppliers like us who to pay in this group.
