Southend Energy and Robin Hood Energy join forces for fairer energy prices

February 18, 2020 by Emily Mertens

After a five year partnership with OVO, Southend Energy has now partnered with Robin Hood Energy, the UK’s first publicly owned energy supplier.

This new partnership means that Southend Energy will offer competitively priced energy for the residents of Southend and Essex. Robin Hood Energy, a not-for-profit energy supplier, was set up to provide fairly priced energy across the UK, while using any surplus made to tackle fuel poverty and help the most vulnerable.

Robin Hood Energy’s main purpose is to put ‘people before profit’ with a mission to help tackle fuel poverty. Vulnerable Southend residents will also be supported by a dedicated Vulnerability Team, with warm home discounts available for those in the Core Group, receiving the Guarantee Credit element of Pension Credit (eligibility criteria applies).

The partnership is also fully committed to combatting climate change, with all electricity coming from 100% green UK solar and wind farms. For every Megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity purchased for Southend Energy customers, a Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificate is also purchased, which proves the electricity is certified as being sourced either directly from the renewable generators or through a green wholesale energy provider.

Cllr Mulroney, Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce this partnership which will help our customers and our continuing fight against fuel poverty in Southend. At a time when families find it hard to pay for energy bills, this partnership will offer low prices that ensure we are always trying to do what is in the best interest of our residents.”

Cllr Neghat Khan, Chair of Robin Hood Energy, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Southend Energy and see this as a fantastic opportunity to further extend our reach in helping to tackle fuel poverty.”
