Fairer energy for people in Southend and Essex

Southend Energy offers competitively priced gas and electricity with excellent, no-nonsense, customer service. No complicated pricing structure or terms and conditions, we try to make everything as easy as possible. All of our electricity tariffs are now 100% green at no extra cost to our customers.

Southend Energy was started by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, in partnership with Robin Hood Energy, to supply energy as cheaply as possible to the people of Southend and Essex. We do not pay shareholder dividends or directors’ bonuses so any profits go back supporting people in our community and keeping prices low.

Profit is not the driving force behind Southend Energy, lowering energy bills, reducing fuel poverty and helping vulnerable people is. We know that a lot of people are struggling to pay their energy bills and Southend Energy is a practical way to help reduce gas and electricity bills and make sure people can afford to warm their homes.

Our energy is supplied by Robin Hood Energy, a not-for-profit energy supplier wholly owned by Nottingham City Council. Robin Hood Energy shares our ethos and wants to help people get the very best energy deals.

If you would like to get fairly priced energy and help people in our community who need the most help then please join our mission at Southend Energy.
