Co-operative Energy triumphs at Which? Awards 2011

Posted on 24 June 2011

Co-operative Energy has scooped the Consumer Action Award at the Which? Awards 2011. The new energy provider picked up the award following its pledge to offer transparency on profits, clear bills and a single tariff for new and loyal customers. The award, which also recognised Co-operative Energy for encouraging UK growth in a sector that is dominated by a handful of companies, was presented by Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Rt Hon Vince Cable MP to Ben Reid OBE, Chief Executive at The Midcounties Co-operative. On receiving the award, Ben commented: “I am very proud to collect this prestigious award on behalf of the team at Co-operative Energy. Even though we only launched a month ago, it’s fantastic that we’re already being recognised for offering customers a fair and honest deal through our new, simple tariff and single unit price. “We really want to revolutionise the sector and most importantly benefit the consumer. With the support from Which? and other  industry bodies I’m sure together we can achieve this.” Rt Hon Vince Cable MP said: “I am delighted to present the Which? Consumer Action Award to Co-operative Energy. This company is an excellent example of aiming for success by responding to what customers want, and I want more businesses making choices easier and more transparent. “By empowering people companies will in turn become more competitive, benefitting the market and consumers.” The awards were held at Kings Place, London on Thursday 23rd June and were hosted by Natasha Kaplinsky. The Consumer Action Award was a new category for the awards.
