Switch to Your Co-op Energy

Powering Communities. Better for the planet.

Top 5 rated energy supplier by Citizens Advice 

Introducing Community Power 

We are not selling the Community Power tariff currently - please check back for updates. 

Community energy projects and local energy groups bring together like-minded locals to invest in planet-saving projects. Whether that be solar panels on neighbourhood rooftops or wind turbines in farmland fields, these projects are owned and run by the communities they power.

Profits go towards local initiatives and more renewable energy enters the grid. It’s a truly co-operative way of championing sustainable power.

Switching to Community Power means you can support a network of local communities across the country. The revenue they receive can go straight towards community initiatives from nature conservation efforts to insulation for homes in disadvantaged areas.

Switching to Community Power also supports the Powering Communities Fund, as for every new customer we put £10 into the pot. By applying for the Younity lead Fund, financial grants or loans can be given to communities, so they can start their own renewable energy projects.
