They’re proud to be leading the way in trying to reduce fuel poverty for those who need help the most.

Our client is a national supplier, with over 100,000 customers and growing fast! They work with a number of other local authorities, such as Leeds, Liverpool, and Derby City Councils, by helping them to create their own energy brand in partnership with our client. With others due to launch soon, our client is proud to be at the forefront of publicly owned energy supply.
