Bulb provides 100% renewable electricity and 10% green gas to homes across the UK. Last year Bulb had 80,000 members; today it has grown to more than 850,000 members. Bulb has also been named by LinkedIn as one of the top 25 tech startups to work for in 2018.

Bulb’s electricity is sourced from independent, renewable generators from across the UK, including six independent hydroelectric power stations in Wales and Scotland. Bulb was founded by two ex-energy industry employees, Hayden Wood and Amit Gudka, in 2015. Both saw first hand that UK consumers were getting a rough deal. Bulb was launched to give consumers a new choice and change the way people think about and interact with energy.

“We started Bulb because we wanted to prove that you could be a great business and also do good at the same time. That’s why we’re a renewable energy company, that’s why we’re a B-Corp and why we’re a London living wage employer. That’s part of the DNA for Bulb.”
