Why choose Co-op Energy?

Co-op Energy is powered by Octopus and prides itself on offering 100% renewable energy which is sourced from community solar, wind, and hydro farms.

All energy tariffs offered by Co-op Energy include 100% renewable electricity as standard. The supplier's power comes from local sources all over the country which generate green energy from wind, sunshine and water.

Co-op Energy is unique among energy providers because it invests in community renewable energy projects to help people sustainably power the areas they live in. It helps local groups invest in renewable energy systems and products like solar panels and wind turbines, with the projects owned and run by the communities they power. 

Reasons to choose Co-op Energy include:

  • Backed by one of the UK’s most innovative suppliers in Octopus

  • 100% renewable energy offered on all tariffs

  • Unique community energy concept

  • No exit fees on fixed tariffs.

You can find out more about Co-op Energy on the supplier's website.

What tariffs are offered by Co-op Energy?

As a smaller supplier, Co-op Energy doesn’t offer as many tariffs as a larger supplier might do. As of May 2024, it offers three:

  • A Fixed Tariff - this is a fixed price tariff whose unit rates and standing charges are fixed and won’t rise or fall for the duration of the contract, which lasts for a year. Unusually for a fixed tariff, Co-op’s offering doesn’t include exit fees.

  • A Flexible Tariff - this is a standard variable tariff whose unit rates and standing charges rise and fall depending on the level of the energy price cap, which is subject to wholesale market changes.

  • A Community Power tariff - a unique fixed price tariff that uses 100% renewable community-generated energy (as explained above). 

Does Co-op Energy charge exit fees?

Unusually among energy suppliers, Co-op Energy doesn’t currently charge exit fees for the two fixed tariffs listed above. This is in line with Octopus’s policy.

Have Co-op Energy prices risen in 2024?

Co-op Energy prices on its Flexible Tariff do rise and fall in line with the energy price cap, so its prices went up in January when the new price cap period began on New Year’s Day. However, since then, a new price cap has come into effect and prices have fallen again. It’s worth noting that Co-op Energy’s Flexible tariff prices tend to be set marginally lower than the price cap level rather than being pushed as high as possible.

Do I need to do anything about Co-op Energy price rises?

Energy prices are set to remain fairly low in 2024 in the context of the astronomical highs seen in recent years. If you wish to switch away from Co-op Energy for a better deal, you should be free to do so at any point because of Co-op Energy’s lack of exit fees. 

Co-op Energy 2024 reviews

As of May 2024, Co-op Energy has a TrustPilot score of 4.8 from over 6,600 reviews although it appears that some people are reviewing Octopus instead.

Does Co-op Energy offer energy-efficient products?
