Switching to a Bulb deal in Nottingham

papernest disclaims that they are in partnership with Bulb

Who are Bulb, and what's on offer for their Nottingham customers?

Last Update: September 2021

They were founded in 2013 and are based in London. Bulb is also known as one of the UK's greenest energy suppliers. They provide customers in Nottinghamshire one tariff to their customers: a vari-fair tariff. This means that the cost of your energy per kWh responds to market price fluctuations of gas and electricity. If the cost of energy goes up or down, then you will notice these changes on your energy bill. Bulb claims that their tariff is 18% cheaper than other suppliers on the market, making them a main competitor to larger suppliers, such as the 'Big 6'. They invest in technologies that keep their costs down, and they are able to pass on the savings they make to their customers.

As well as being cheap, their tariff is also environmental. They provide 100% green electricity and their gas is offset through investing in carbon offsetting initiatives.

Bulb will be the first supplier in UK history to trigger the legal process referred to as "special administration", which means that the UK government will step in to fund Bulb's operations for the foreseeable future until they can formally seize trading in a safe manner. Without this government safety net, it is likely that a supplier of this size going bust could create a chain reaction causing numerous other suppliers to go bust as well. It could be weeks to months before a formal exit strategy for Bulb is announced, so for now Bulb customers are encouraged to remain patients can continue paying for their energy as normal.
