Scheme to tackle fuel poverty helps residents

Over 1,000 households in Corby have switched their energy bills to not for profit supplier, Robin Hood Energy, since they launched their partnership with Corby Borough Council in March.

Robin Hood Energy is a not for profit, independent energy supplier, established by Nottingham City Council in 2015 with the aim to provide customers throughout the UK with gas and electricity at the lowest possible price.

Working in partnership with Corby Borough Council the energy supplier has now launched its services in Corby in order to help provide affordable energy to customers whilst contributing to tackling fuel poverty.

Robin Hood Energy works in the same way as a typical energy firm. However, what does make Robin Hood Energy different from other larger suppliers is that there are no private shareholders and no director bonuses. The money that Robin Hood Energy makes from supplying energy will be used to cover their overheads and any surplus is used to help lower energy prices and tackle fuel poverty.

Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Housing, Cllr Bob Eyles, said:

‘We are very pleased to see that so many people have decided to swap their energy supplier to Robin Hood Energy, which aims to get the lowest price for customers and help us tackle fuel poverty.  With the everyday strains on our purse strings and the continued economic uncertainties we face, every saving counts.’
