Cooperative Energy

Who are the Cooperative Energy?

The Cooperative Energy was formed in 2010 and is part of the Midcounties Co-operative, the largest independent cooperative in the UK. The group operates in sectors including Food, Energy, Travel, Pharmaceuticals, Flexible Benefits, Funerals, Childcare and Post Offices.

Cooperative organisations are owned and run by members rather than shareholders as is the case with most other energy companies including the ‘big six’. The group promote a strong ethical focus based around community, responsible operating practices and sustainability. The Cooperative Energy aims to provide straightforward, fair and easy to understand energy tariffs. They typically offer a small number of tariffs in order to keep things simple.

The group actively invests in renewable energy technologies and are aiming to obtain 75% of all their energy from renewable sources within 3 years.
