It’s time to Dump The Big Six

Against a backdrop of widespread anger with Big Power in the UK, Ecotricity has launched its “Dump The Big Six” rallying call to ditch your badly behaved supplier and make Britain greener. The Big Six (British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, Npower, Scottish & Southern, Scottish Power) have long enjoyed a carbon-fuelled chokehold the UK’s energy, supplying 99% of customers. But is their grip crumbling?

Dirty Power vs Clean Energy

It’s been a winter of discontent for Big Power. Huge numbers of households are deserting: British Gas alone lost 200, 000 customers in the last quarter. The Big Six are disgracing headlines left, right and center. Even the energy secretary accused them of malpractice.

• A third of Brits have seen no benefit from the recent ‘price war’ on energy
• The Big Six were hammered with over four million complaints in 2011
• found that 80% of households aren’t on the best value tariff
• Big Six investment in new sources of renewable energy runs as low as £5 a year per customer

In this era of big business, Ecotricity shows when it comes to ethics & customer service, David can beat Goliath.

• Ecotricity is the UK’s foremost renewable energy company
• Ecotricity invest more of your bill in new sources of renewables than any other power supplier
• 88% of Ecotricity’s customers rate their service as ‘excellent or good’
• Your TV stays on when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing
