Launched in September 2015, Robin Hood Energy is a not for profit, independent energy supplier. Established by Nottingham Council, Robin Hood Energy aims to provide customers throughout the UK with gas and electricity at the lowest possible price.
Robin Hood Energy works in the same way as a typical energy firm. They buy in bulk on the open market, off the National Grid, and then sell it on to its customers. What does make Robin Hood Energy different from other larger suppliers is that there will be no private shareholders and no director bonuses. The money that Robin Hood Energy makes from supplying energy will be used to cover their overheads and any excess cash will be pumped back into the system to try and improve savings.
Robin Hood Energy aims to provide a straight-forward, honest service and promise that all their communication will be jargon-free. They promise to work hard to keep their energy prices competitive to help their customers save money on their energy bills.
