Last Update: September 2021
Bulb is the fastest-growing energy provider in the UK and was founded in 2013. They supply 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon neutral gas. As of now, they supply energy to over 1.6 million customers notably in West Yorkshire. Bulb over a variable tariff and do not charge exit fees, which ensures you are free to switch suppliers at any time if need be. The single tariff means that you do not have to filter through dozens of options. They aim to keep things simple and effective. Bulb claims that their tariff is 18% cheaper than other tariffs from the energy market. This is due to the fact that they invest money into technologies that allows them to keep their prices low, meaning they can offer their tariff at a more reasonable price for customers.
Recently Bulb announced that they are going bust as a result of complications caused by the UK's energy crisis. However, because of their size, Ofgem is unable to simply transfer their customers to a new supplier without causing a chain reaction of business failures within the energy industry. Instead, they have entered a special legal process called "special administrator", in which the UK government will fund Bulb to continue to operate until they can come to a close in a safe manner in an effort to minimise any negative impact on the remainder of the energy market.
