I switched to Bulb around 4 months ago after reading positive reviews about them. I was reluctant but did a huge amount of research about them and so far I’m happy with my decision. I’m already making a monthly saving on bills compared to my previous energy supplier and I even got a £50 credit when I signed up using a referral link, which made my first bill super cheap! Anyone can grab a £50 credit on their account by signing up via a referral code. As I mentioned, I’m only 4 months in but I’m on track to make roughly a £225 annual saving.
I’ve put together my own Bulb energy review to share my thoughts about my experience so far.
I spent a long time trawling through Trustpilot, Money Saving Expert, Energy Advisory Services etc before switching to get my confidence up to make the move. I hadn’t heard of them before so was apprehensive. Bulb seemed to come out trumps with good customer reviews and independent articles, so I thought, what could go wrong? So far so good. No complaints here.
Online Interface and App
The online interface is really clean and intuitive. They make it so easy to add meter reading, see bills and usage reports, view past communications and see tariff details. They also have a really good app which makes adding meter readings that little bit more easy, I can just do it from the meter at the front of the house.
I can’t speak for everyone, and it may depend on location/ usage, but bulb came on top for me when I compared estimated prices. I was already on a good deal with my old supplier but bulb’s pricing looked to save me around £225 for the year. Apparently bulb invest lots in technology which has allowed them to operate at a cheaper level and they have passed the savings on to us – the customer.
Even if you are tied into an energy provider with exit fees, Bulb make it nice and easy to switch to them by paying your exit fees of your current energy company. On top of that you don’t have to be worried about tying yourself into Bulb. They are so committed to offering a great service at a low cost, that they do not charge exit fees (they know you’ll want to stay with them).
Clean and Green
I have to admit, renewable energy was not the top of my list when making this decision. My reason for switching was price and price alone but I am really happy that the right decision for me is also the right decision for the environment!
According to their website, “Every year, the typical home with Bulb saves 1.3 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. That’s the same as planting 655 trees”. That’s a lot of trees!
