August 2018 price increases

Energy is a competitive marketplace in the UK and Bulb is a business.
But i like it that Bulb choose to flag price increases and explain them ahead of time.
I feel a bit more loyal to Bulb as a result . . .

@DourSausage We’re glad that this is well received, it’s something we care about a lot actually. What we try and do is have very clear principles which underpin our price. We actually find if we communicate these clearly, members’ are very receptive and understanding.

  1. Just one tariff
    -We have one single tariff so if you’re with us, you’re always on our best deal
    -We don’t charge exit fees – you’re free to leave us at any point

  2. Fast down, slow up
    -We review our prices every week
    -When costs fall by more than £20 per year, so will your tariff
    -If they rise, we work hard to limit cost increases to you and always give 60 days notice

  3. Radical transparency
    -We show how our tariff compares to all other suppliers on our homepage
    -We explain what we’re doing in plain English, not industry jargon
    -A real person is on hand to answer any questions you have

If you’re offering us 100% renewable energy then why do your prices follow wholesale market prices?

“While we only ever buy 100% renewable electricity and 10% green gas, there is only one price for gas or electricity in the UK. There aren’t separate markets for green and non-green energy sources. The price is determined by what people will pay for energy at a particular time, regardless of the source. So, when the cost of electricity produced by burning gas goes up, so does the cost of electricity from wind, solar and all other green sources.”
