So, do you want to switch to Bulb in Bradford?
First let's find out a bit about them, 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 the market price. Their energy plan is 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.
