Are you tired of seeing your energy bills creep up? Have you noticed a sharp rise in your energy bills in 2021? If you stay with the same supplier year after year, you’re likely to notice that your bills rise. Especially if you stay with them after your fixed-rate energy deal has expired. Why? Because after your fixed-rate deal replies, you’re usually moved to a standard variable tariff. Which is usually a supplier’s most expensive rate. The good news is that because you’re out of contract, you can switch suppliers at any time without incurring exit fees.

Your household deserves a better class of energy supplier. An energy supplier with affordable, easy to understand tariffs, great customer service and impeccable green credentials. Bulb Energy is a great example of this. 

Why choose Bulb Energy?

The energy experts at Switch-Plan have a lot of positive things to say about Bulb Energy. For starters, they laud the brand’s commitment to sustainability with renewable energy tariffs. They also praise the simplicity of Bulb’s tariffs. Rather than bamboozle customers with a wide range of fixed-rate tariffs, Bulb has only one variable-rate energy plan called its “Vari-Fair” tariff. This is regularly tracked to ensure that it provides a great deal for customers. 

Switch-Plan also points out that Bulb has an excellent track record when it comes to customer service. They point to the supplier’s excellent "Trustpilot score". At the time of writing, this stands at 4.5 out of 5 with over 73,000 reviews.

Is Bulb Energy 100% renewable?

Yes. 100% of Bulb’s electricity comes from renewable sources like wind (78%), solar (18%) and hydropower (4%). At present they do not yet offer renewable biomethane gas. However, they do carbon-offset the natural gas that they provide with investment in carbon neutral projects at home and overseas. 

What’s more, the Bulb Foundation was established in 2019 was created to help combat climate change and support people whose homes and livelihood have been affected by this global phenomenon. 

So you know that you’re getting energy with great ethical and green credentials when you choose Bulb. 

What are Bulb Energy’s rates?

Bulb’s Vari-Fair tariff boasts some impressive rates that rank amongst some of the best in the country. In fact, the brand claims that its tariff is around 18% cheaper than similar tariffs on the market today. According to Switch-Plan, average electricity prices across the UK stand at 17.798 p per kWh, while gas is charged at 3.1395 p. For the average household (which uses 12,000 kWh of gas and 2,900 kWh electricity per year) this falls significantly short of the Ofgem Energy Price Cap of £1,138 per year.

What if I see a better deal elsewhere?

Switching suppliers regularly can ensure that you’re always getting the best rates, while also keeping the market competitive. But hefty early exit fees can prove an impediment to switching. Fortunately, because Bulb has only one variable-rate tariff, you can switch at any time if you see a better deal elsewhere.
