The brand will offer fairly priced gas and electricity to help some of the city’s most vulnerable households out of fuel poverty
Southampton City Council are set to partner with Robin Hood Energy and launch a not-for-profit energy brand under the name of CitizEn Energy in the summer of 2018.
The aim of CitizEn Energy is to offer fairly priced gas and electricity to residents, including those on pre-payment meters, and as a result help some of the city’s most vulnerable households out of fuel poverty. Any money made will be reinvested into local energy efficiency initiatives.
The council is also leading a project that will see up to thirteen other local authorities using the brand to sell gas and electricity to their residents.
Following a procurement process, Robin Hood Energy have been chosen as the energy supplier for CitizEn Energy. Launched by Nottingham City Council in 2015, Robin Hood Energy’s goals and ethos match Southampton City Council’s, which is to provide people with a competitively priced, local alternative to the Big Six energy companies.
