PFP Energy reviews, prices and tariffs
PFP Energy has carved out a name for itself as not only a supplier of affordable energy with transparent prices but also a company that cares about the communities of its customers. Formerly Places for People Energy, PFP started in 2015 as a not-for-profit energy supplier, redirecting all of its profits into social projects.
In December 2016, it moved away from Places for People to become an independent business.
Having built a strong base in the domestic energy market, PFP added to its offering by expanding into the business energy market supplying SMEs in February 2018. PFP Energy has achieved a 4-star rating on Trustpilot, no doubt thanks to its transparent pricing, and consistent customer satisfaction.
PFP does not currently supply smart meters but is looking to start through 2020 onwards. PFP Energy is renowned for its good customer service, which is reflected in some of the awards it has won.

PFP Energy prices and tariffs
PFP Energy has two tariffs. The Together tariff is a fixed rate option with the SImple Fair Energy tariff offering a rate variable alternative. The fixed-rate tariff is great for budgeting so customers can see what they’re spending, whilst the variable rate allows market price changes to impact the rates, so customers on this tariff could see rises or falls in their rates.
They also offer a prepayment option where customers can preload their card at a designated PayPoint, Payzone or Post Office and be in total control of what they spend.
PFP offers custom tariffs for businesses of all sizes. Your LES representative will liaise closely with the PFP team to get you the very best deal possible for your business.

Supply Source & Green Performance
The PFP Energy fuel mix is disclosed as quite heavy on natural gas and low on renewable energy compared to average UK supplier fuel mix statistics.
- Coal - 8.9%
- Natural Gas - 60.3%
- Nuclear - 18.1%
- Renewables - 8.9%
- Other - 3.8%
Compare these statistics to the typical fuel mix from UK suppliers in our wholesale energy guide.
The company is working hard to build on the renewable element of their energy mix. It buys its energy from existing suppliers and generators, leaving it with little control on the sustainability of its energy. The company line is to, “strike the best balance between low prices and reducing carbon emissions over time.”
According to the PFP Energy website you can cancel your switch within the 14 cooling-off period. If you choose to cancel outside of this, an exit fee may apply, dependent upon your contract.
