Compare Energy Prices with Pure Planet
Launched by the founders of Virgin Mobile, Pure Planet is the UK’s first app-based renewable energy supplier, and one of just a handful of the country’s energy companies that offer both 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon-offset gas.
Headquartered in Bristol in the South West of England, Pure Planet has created an innovative and cost effective approach to paying for your energy – a membership model that allows domestic energy customers to pay a monthly membership fee in exchange for receiving their energy at the wholesale price rather a retail price.
That pricing model can have a significant impact on your energy bills, with Pure Planet indicating that its 100% renewable energy prices are on average 20% lower than the price you’d pay for non-renewable energy from other suppliers.
Does Pure Planet supply gas?
Yes, Pure Planet is able to supply gas in addition to electricity, but in line with many of the UK’s other smaller energy suppliers (Nabuh Energy, M and S Energy, Shell Energy and Igloo Energy, for example), Pure Planet supplies gas as part of its dual fuel tariff rather than as a standalone utility.
Unlike some other suppliers, though, Pure Planet’s electricity supply is 100% renewable while its gas supply is 100% carbon-offset, making it a popular choice with environmentally conscious tenants and homeowners.
Does Pure Planet supply business energy?
No, Pure Planet is fully focused on supplying green energy to domestic energy customers, and as such the company doesn’t supply business energy. If you own or run a small business we do have a business energy comparison service you can use, though.
How much could I save on my domestic energy bills by switching to Pure Planet?
The exact amount you’d save if you switched energy suppliers would be based on a range of different variables, including the supplier you’re currently with, the tariff you’re currently on and how much energy you usually use each month, so it’s difficult to quote a personalised cost saving until you use our energy comparison service to compare suppliers and tariffs.
However, according to Pure Planet’s own data their 100% renewable energy is 20% cheaper, on average, than the price you’d pay for polluting energy from other UK suppliers.
Which tariff should I choose if I’m switching to Pure Planet?
Since Pure Planet sells its electricity and gas to its customers at the wholesale price rather than a retail price its customers are paying what the company itself pays, which means Pure Planet only has one tariff for electricity and one tariff for gas.
According to Pure Planet’s customer reviews is this company a good choice if I’m thinking of switching?
Pure Planet has received over 2,500 five star reviews on Trustpilot, with many customers praising the company’s transparent pricing, while many others have indicated that its energy app helps them stay on top of their energy usage.
Does Pure Planet have a standing charge?
Pure Planet charges a monthly membership fee, which basically is its standing charge.
How much is the membership fee?
Pure Planet’s membership is £8 a month if the company is supplying your electricity, and £16 a month if it is supplying both gas and electricity.
Those membership fees are in addition to the cost of the energy you use in your home, but Pure Planet supplies that energy at the wholesale price.
