People’s Energy Company is an alternative to the big six, providing sustainable energy to homes and SME businesses across the UK. There are no big shareholders, no fat cat bonuses. The aim is to pay 75% of profits back to customers, and to make energy affordable for all.
The company began in 2017, crowdfunded by people fed up with the Big Six energy firms. Starting by supplying gas and 100% renewable electricity to domestic homes, People’s Energy has since launched a tariff designed for the SME market.
Energy is a basic human right – so why are we held to ransom by fat cat suppliers and their shareholders? People’s Energy was crowdfunded by a group of people who knew we could do better. Our focus is our members – we have no external shareholders and we’ll pay 75% of profits back to all our domestic members through an annual rebate.
We answer to you and no-one else
People’s Energy wasn’t created for profit – it was created for the people.
2,200 ordinary members of the public funded the company. We answer to them and the thousands of people we serve every day. There are no external shareholders or fat cat investors making money off your basic need for fuel – it’s just you and us. The people.
Profits back to the people
Our focus is our members – we have no external shareholders and we’ll pay 75% of profits back to all our domestic members through an annual rebate. That applies no matter what tariff you’re on. We’ve already started to pay back our initial crowdfunders and we’re expecting to be able to give domestic customers their first annual rebate in 2021.

Here for people and planet – our Fuel Mix
The electricity we supply is generated from Biomass, a 100% renewable source. We believe that renewable energy should be the standard – there’s no need anymore to generate electricity using fossil fuels that are harming the planet. As it stands, there is not enough green gas being generated for us to supply it – but we won’t be deterred! There are several approaches we could take, and we want you to help us decide which is best for the planet and for vulnerable populations.
