November 13th Update: Get £100 For Switching to Bulb! (ends Monday 20th November)
To celebrate their 200,000th member Bulb is doubling their sign up reward for the next 7 days to £100! Just sign up by midnight November 20th using our Real Gifts link and you’ll get the £100 credited to your account once your switch is complete. This is the first time Bulb have given out £100 since I signed up over a year ago so grab it while you can!

I discovered Bulb while comparing gas and electricity prices at Money Saving Expert’s energy club.

Not only was Bulb offering one of the cheapest rates I was quoted it also included renewable energy – without the high charges a green energy tariff usually comes with.

I then looked for some Bulb customer reviews to see if their service matched their prices and saw the highest TrustPilot rating I’ve ever seen – 9.8 out of 10 from over 3,500 reviews.

Signing up to Bulb energy

So I decided to take the plunge and switch to Bulb (saving well over £100 on E.on’s annual rates) and the whole process couldn’t have been any easier, taking only a couple of minutes to fill in my address and bank details.

I needed to phone Bulb a week or two later realising I’d given the wrong bank account details and they were super helpful and friendly in getting it sorted.

It took about 3 weeks from sign up to start getting my energy from Bulb and the switch was completely seamless with Bulb keeping me updated with helpful emails along the way.

It’s now been over a year since switching and I’m still really happy with Bulb and have been spreading the word to family and friends (my Dad switched around the same time with no problems either).

Bulb will pay any exit fees

Exits fees, how we all love them. If your current supplier charges a nasty exit fee for leaving your contract early then Bulb will refund it in full as a credit to your Bulb account (up to a maximum of £120 per switch). To claim the refund just send Bulb an email with a copy of the final bill from your previous supplier with the exit fee amount itemised. Nice.

Get £100 off your first bill using our sign up link

Another thing that tipped me to switch to Bulb is their limited time offer of giving anyone you refer a tidy £100 off their first bill (until November 20th when it will go back down to £50). So tell your friends and family and they’ll not only get £100 but you will too – at least while the offer lasts.

1 Year Update – November 2017

That’s over 15 months since I switched from E-on to Bulb energy and I couldn’t be happier with Bulb’s service. Entering meter readings and checking usage and bills on the website has been a breeze. Even my technophobic, hard to impress 76 year old Dad has found the Bulb website very easy to use and is recommending Bulb to anyone who’ll listen!

Bulb sent me an email a few weeks ago highlighting their second price cut of the year. The £20 annual saving makes that £100 so far in £2017 while other providers prices have been rising.

Bulb energy Review - Savings chart

Bulb recently celebrated reaching 200,000 members (apparently I was their 4,004th member!) which collectively equates to saving 380 million kg of CO2 per year. The equivalent of taking 260,000 cars off the road. Nice again.

Using Bulb’s website

As you can see Bulb’s website has an intuitively simple design that makes it easy and straightforward to use. MyBulb is where you can manage your account, enter meter readings and view your energy usage.

Again, the interface and design is very user friendly and makes entering your meter readings a doddle.

There’s also a new security measure for signing in that means you no longer need a password. Bulb will send you an email with a secure link every time you need to log on. It’s a simple, more secure solution and means no more typing out long passwords on your mobile or trying to remember if it had numbers or capital letters etc. The password option is there if you prefer it though.

One of the ways that Bulb has been able to cut costs is to engage their community in the same way that GiffGaff does for mobile phone customers. So you can find out answers to all kinds of questions by asking the community or reading the forum & FAQ’s.

Bulb’s New iPhone App

The wait is over and Bulb now has a shiny new iPhone app available for free in Apple’s App Store. With the app you can send meter readings by taking a photo, download your statements and refer friends straight from the app.

Don’t worry Android users (I’m one of you too!) Bulb are beavering away on their Android app which is targeted for release later this year – until then the website’s still works great on my Android phone with Bulb’s responsive design.

Conclusion

Overall it feels really good to be using Bulb energy from renewable sources while saving money at the same time. It’s a win/win situation for me, my pocket and the environment.

Finally, the friendliness and professionalism of the people I’ve spoken with at Bulb has restored my faith in UK customer service. They just get it right. I’m not always pleased with my spending decisions but this is one of my best and am happy to recommend Bulb as a green electricity & gas supplier that I’m confident you’ll be happy with too.
