The Bulb Energy supply for Glaswegians
Last update: December 2020
So, do you want to switch to Bulb in Glasgow?
Let's find out a bit about them first, and what they offer their customers.
Bulb are known as one of the greenest UK energy suppliers. Founded in 2015, they provide 100% renewable electricity, and while they cannot provide 100% renewable gas yet, their gas is offset as they support carbon reduction projects.
What makes Bulb unique is that they have just one energy plan. Their customers seem to really like this, since everything is streamlined and reflected by market price. It’s a vari-fair tariff, meaning it’s variable and responds to price fluctuations. Bulb's one tariff is very well-priced, and they claim that it is 18% cheaper than others on the market. By investing in technologies which keep their prices cheap, they are able to pass on the savings to their customers.
