About us

Bristol Energy is a gas and electricity company that offers fair and transparent electricity and gas tariffs for domestic and business customers across Bristol, the South West and nationwide.

The Big Six energy companies have dominated the energy market for too long. Two thirds of customers across the UK remain on expensive standard variable tariffs, paying hundreds of pounds a year more than they need to.

At Bristol Energy we have an opportunity to engage customers with an alternative way to buy their energy. We can offer electricity and gas at a fair price, and as one of the UK’s first municipal energy companies, wholly owned by Bristol City Council, we are challenging the norm.

As well providing an innovative way to support Bristol City Council in its economic, social and environmental goals. We’re a company that we hope can make a positive impact on the city, and our customers.
