Strong customer growth following 'Clean Energy Switch' campaign

Good Energy, the AIM listed renewable electricity supplier and generator, is pleased to announce that an autumn 'Clean Energy Switch' campaign has attracted almost 10,000 new domestic customers, nearly 80% of which are dual fuel.

The 'Clean Energy Switch' was launched at the beginning of September 2015 by campaigning organisation 38 Degrees and the Big Deal. The campaign invited consumers to join a collective switching initiative, encouraging them to secure a cheaper deal and choose 'green' electricity.

The 'Clean Energy Switch', which has now closed, offered Good Energy's dual tariff for an average price of, £947, 20% cheaper than the average Big Six tariff.  This is the first time Good Energy has won a large collective switch.

Juliet Davenport, Chief Executive Officer, commented:

"We are delighted by the success of the 38 Degrees campaign and to see almost 10,000 consumers switching to a cheaper and greener deal.  The team has responded well to this level of demand and following our investments in our own renewable plant, we have the renewable power to support these customers.  

"This is the first green collective switch and demonstrates that Good Energy's renewable and price competitive proposition appeals to a wide customer base, and further supports our new growth strategy targeting a five-fold growth in customer numbers by 2020."
