About Robin Hood Energy
Robin Hood Energy is a small gas and electricity supplier offering both residential and business energy to customers in Britain.
The Nottingham-based supplier joined the quickly expanding list of UK small energy providers in 2015.
Indicative of its name, the supplier is a not-for-profit organisation launched by Nottingham City Council, and its aim is, simply, to provide more affordable energy to the people.
The supplier is the first of its kind — a local-authority-owned energy company — since the energy market was nationalised more than 65 years ago, and Robin Hood Energy hopes to tackle fuel poverty by offering an affordable alternative to the big six.
The supplier also works to help other communities and councils mirror their business model to establish their own local energy suppliers.
Despite being focussed in the Nottingham area, anyone in England, Scotland or Wales can switch to Robin Hood Energy.
