The Bulb Energy supply for Sheffielders

Last update: May 2021

Looking to switch to Bulb in Sheffield?

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

They were founded in 2015 by two guys and are based in London. Bulb is also known as one of the UK's greenest energy suppliers. They provide 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 claim 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 cheap, their tariff is also environmental. They provide 100% green electricity and their gas is offset through investing in carbon offsetting initiatives.

How cheap are Bulb's plans for Sheffielders?

Bulb's customers rave about the price of their energy. Compared to plans from the Big 6, Bulb's tariffs are very affordable. Why is this? Well, they invest in both renewable and affordable energy. The savings they make are passed onto their customers. The cost of energy can change month on month, however, since they provide a variable tariff - their vari-fair tariff - which reflects fluctuations in the wholesale price of energy. But all in all, Bulb's plans are delightfully affordable.
