Who are Ecotricity?

Ecotricity is a UK-based company and the world’s first green electricity company. Their mission is to change the way electricity is made and used in Britain.  Ecotricity offers a single tariff for gas and electricity, with 100% renewable electricity and gas that is frack-free.  With no shareholders to pay, Ecotricity’s profits go back into their mission - meaning that they use their customers’ energy bills to fund the building of new sources of green energy – what the company calls ‘bills into mills.’  

That’s not all though - they not only build new energy from the wind and the sun, they’re securing the future of green energy by developing energy storage, supporting the EV revolution with the Electric Highway, a national network of electric car charge points, and they even turned their local football club, Forest Green Rovers, into the greenest football club in the world. These are just some of the reasons why we’ve worked with Ecotricity since 2013.

In 2017 Ecotricity was the Citizens’ Advice Bureau’s top-rated energy company, beating the ‘big six’ on customer satisfaction.
