Bristol Energy ceased trading on 18 January 2022 as a result of its parent company, Together Energy, ceasing to trade. Its customers will be transferred to British Gas under Ofgem's Supplier of Last Resort system.
About Bristol Energy
Bristol Energy is a national gas and electricity company, originally set up and owned by Bristol City Council. In September 2020, Bristol Energy's customer base was acquired by Together Energy, which bills itself as one of the UK's most ethically aware energy firms.
Since the purchase by Together Energy, the company has continued to operate under the Bristol Energy brand. Bristol Energy customers' bills, tariff, balance and terms and conditions will remain the same.
How Bristol Energy prices have changed
Like most energy suppliers in the UK, Bristol Energy's standard variable tariffs are subject to Ofgem's energy price cap.
In August 2021, Ofgem announced an increase to its price cap rate of 12% to come into effect from October 2021, meaning average use standard variable tariff customers will have to pay a maximum of £1,277 per year. Bristol Energy therefore increased the price of its standard variable tariff to £1,276, just under the cap level.
