Making history

Islington Council has made history by launching London’s first municipal energy provider in more than a century, with a focus on offering fair gas and electricity prices and helping the capital’s most vulnerable households out of fuel poverty.

We are a not-for-profit energy provider set up by Islington Council to help further its commitment to reducing inequality in society. Despite the common perception that Islington is a wealthy borough, it is the 24th most-deprived local authority in England, has the third-highest level of child poverty in the country at 36%, and one of the biggest gaps between the wealthiest and poorest residents.

We will help the council address inequalities driven by rising energy prices and shape a fairer Islington for all, as it doesn’t have to answer to shareholders or pay directors’ bonuses – instead reinvesting its income in providing good-value energy, good customer service and a fairer deal for all.
