Transforming the UK energy market for good

00% renewable electricity

supplier, Good Energy, is sponsoring BIG Green Week this year, so we caught up with CEO, Juliet Davenport, to find out a bit more about the company and its connection with Bristol. What’s Good Energy all about? We’re an energy supplier with a difference. Our electricity comes from local, natural sources like Bristol sunshine, wind and rain. In fact, we promise to match all the electricity our 40,000 customers use with electricity sourced purely from the awesome power of British renewables. We always have done and always will. No other energy supplier in the country can promise that. But it’s not just our energy that’s good. Our customer service is pretty good too. We’ve been voted top of the Which? customer satisfaction survey three years in a row. Our friendly team are experts in helping you save energy and cut your bills, thanks to their Energy Saving Trust-endorsed advice. Our vision is to transform the UK energy market, using renewables to make it more democratic and self-sufficient. Bristol is already playing a huge part in helping this happen.

So what’s Bristol got to do with Good Energy? Bristol is really leading the way in the green energy revolution. We support a growing band of over 59,000 homes, small business and communities across the country who have chosen to generate their own renewable electricity, mostly using solar panels on their roofs. Around 3,500 of these are in Bristol, the highest of any city in the country. It’s this accessibility and flexibility of renewable technology that makes it a fantastic facilitator for opening up the energy market, ensuring more and more people can play a part in their energy future. By connecting more people with energy for the long-term, we believe we will all start to understand it more and use it less. And that’s better for the planet and our pockets. We are also proud to work with a number of local businesses and organisations; Alastair Sawday’s, Solarsense and the Soil Association, to name a few. Why did you choose to support BIG Green Week? BIG Green Week is all about the positive

changes we can make, together, to transform how we live, for good. Good Energy was founded over a decade ago on this very same principle. We wanted to offer people the opportunity to choose cleaner, greener electricity from sunshine, wind and rain for their homes and support renewable generators. What are you going to be doing? We’ve been involved with BIG Green Week since the beginning and are very pleased to be part of this year’s event. It really is a pioneering festival for pioneering people. We’ll be at the events over both weekends with loads of Good Energy people where hopefully customers and new customers can find out more about us. It’s going to be a ‘good’ week and we’re really looking forward to it. How can people get involved? Come along; get involved; bring a friend and get switching. We want Bristol to #switchforgood at BIG Green Week ■
