Our service to you


Southend Energy – fairer energy for you

We offer competitively priced gas and electricity with excellent, no-nonsense, customer service and all of our electricity is 100% green* as standard – at no extra cost.

We are not-for-profit and were started by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council to supply energy as cheaply as possible to the people of Southend and Essex.

Profit is not the driving force behind Southend Energy, reducing fuel poverty and helping vulnerable people is. Our aim is to help reduce energy bills across Southend and Essex for all our customers and use the surplus we generate to help the most vulnerable in our community.

All of our customers get great prices and service. We pay attention to our customers’ needs and we are confident we can help them save money on their energy bills.

*100% of the electricity we provide is sourced from UK-based solar and wind generators

Our service standards cover both the standards we will deliver as a business, alongside the Guaranteed Standards of Performance that are required by the Government and the industry regulator, Ofgem. These standards underpin our service and provide the framework for all business activities, providing you with a positive customer experience, value for money and a fair and clear billing process.

The Standards of Performance ensure you receive the service levels that define how all energy suppliers deliver energy to their customers; a level of service that is reasonable to expect companies to provide to their customers.

You can also get independent advice about your rights as an energy customer provided by Citizens’ Advice.

If you have a problem or query, we aim to resolve this as quickly as possible. There are a number of ways you can get in touch with us:
