Bulb reviews, prices and tariffs
Bulb was founded by two friends working in the energy industry who identified issues with the big providers; inefficient processes, poor customer service and expensive, non-renewable energy. So, Hayden Wood and Amit Gudka set out to change that by providing an alternative for consumers with simpler, cleaner and greener energy. Launched in 2015, Bulb’s simplistic approach has led to them offering just a single variable tariff, using 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon neutral gas. They have experienced rapid growth and have attracted 1.5 million customers to join them on their journey so far. Bulb employee a team of 270 people at their head office in London, and in 2019 announced they were expanding into France, Spain and Texas.
