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.
Bulb’s community forum is part of their commitment to their customers. Ideas such as refunds for exit fees from previous providers has led them to gain many fans and very positive reviews. Bulb are also a certified B Corp company meaning they meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
Bulb Energy Ltd is privately owned: their sole shareholder is Simple Energy Limited. Since their launch in 2015, Bulb has experienced phenomenal growth leading to them becoming one of the fastest-growing startups in the UK. Initially funded by friends and family, large-scale investors DST Global and JamJar Investments came on board to help finance their rapid growth.
