Our awards

We’re proud to be at the forefront of innovation and progress in the energy business, because we know that our commitment to it makes energy better for our customers.

We are proud to have been recognised for this with a number of awards including:

Utility Week Customer Care Award

At a gala awards ceremony, hosted by Joanna Lumley, we were announced the winner and commended for the way we “bravely took on a high-risk project, providing a retainer of last resort for customers who had nowhere else to turn”. Find out more about our win here.
