Switching to an Bulb deal in Liverpool
The Bulb Energy supply for Liverpudlians
Last update: December 2020
Just moved to Liverpool?
Welcome to Liverpool! Have you lived here for a while now? Or have you just made the move over to Merseyside from a different county? Either way, when you move into a new house, you need to figure out how you are going to power it up. That's where we come in. We want to help you switch to an energy plan that is best suited to you and your energy needs. This page is dedicated to switching to Bulb in Liverpool. You can find all the information you need about this relatively new energy supplier here.
But first, who are Bulb?
Bulb have 1.5 million customers around the UK, which is huge given that they were only founded in 2015. Two guys in London recognised a gap in the energy market for green energy, and it has grown exponentially since, spreading across the UK and even to other countries.
You may know Bulb as one of the UK's greenest energy suppliers. They provide 100% renewable electricity to their customers and the gas that their customers use is offset through investment in carbon offsetting schemes. Moreover, through investing in technologies that keep their costs down, they pass on savings they make to their customers. Bulb customers are able to make hefty savings each month compared to if they were with a larger supplier, such as one of the Big 6. Their vari-fair tariff (also, their only tariff!) is susceptible to price fluctuations, as it is a variable tariff, meaning that it reflects fluctuations in the wholesale cost of energy.
