Switching to a Bulb deal in Baildon Ward

papernest disclaims that they are in partnership with Bulb

Bulb energy for citizens of Baildon Ward

Last Update: September 2021

Bulb have 1.6 million customers around the UK and in West Yorkshire, which is huge given that they were only founded in 2013. Two guys in London recognised a gap in the energy market for green energy, and since then they have grown exponentially, 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 therefore able to make hefty savings each month, which might not have been possible 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.

Unfortunately, as a result of financial complications that were exacerbated by the UK's energy crisis, Bulb Energy has announced that they are going bust. However, because Bulb Energy is such a large supplier the UK government has called for a special legal process, referred to as "special administration", to be implemented. This process means that the UK government will fund Bulb's operations for a period of time until Bulb Energy can seize trading in a safe manner in an effort to reduce any fallout impacting other energy suppliers in the UK market. For now, Bulb Energy will remain active as normal using the government's funding, so it is our suggestion that Bulb customers stay patient and remain with Bulb.
