We’re an electricity supplier that doesn’t act like one. We’re a practical, down-to-earth and honest company. And it shows.
We don’t exist to save the world. We don’t want to be the biggest energy company around. We just want more people to use sustainable energy.
We treat customers like, well, customers. Not as numbers and not like Swampy either and we don’t play on heartstrings
We just like sustainable energy because it’s useful, it’s more imaginative and it’s more resourceful.
Safe energy from sound sources.

The folks down at Gask farm have finally solved the problem of what to do with their pig manure. Turn it in to electricity!
