Ebico and Octopus Energy join forces to make sustainable home warmth more affordable for all

  • Ebico and Octopus Energy launch Ebico Prime12 Saver and Ebico Prepay with 100% green electricity.
  • Ebico will spend surpluses on making sustainable home warmth more affordable for all.
  • The partnership brings together the UK’s first not-for-profit energy company with the first energy supplier to be named Which Recommended Provider four years in a row.

Oxford, 31 March 2021: Ebico and Octopus Energy have today unveiled a new energy partnership which offers two new propositions as they vow to make sustainable home warmth more affordable for all.

The partnership will initially offer two new energy plans: Ebico Prime 12 Saver, designed for credit meter customers, and Ebico Prepay, for customers supplied via a pre-payment meter.  The electricity for both plans comes from 100% renewable sources and both deals carry no exit fees or tie-ins.

Ebico was founded 23 years ago to make sustainable home warmth affordable for low-income households.  Through this new partnership with Octopus Energy, Ebico will continue with this mission through the home energy supply market.   

Until recently, Ebico was in partnership with Robin Hood Energy (RHE).  With Ofgem’s revocation of RHE’s supply licence, this partnership came to an end.  Ebico remains committed to offering customers, both old and new, appropriate and competitively priced energy plans.  Importantly, in partnership with Octopus Energy, Ebico will now be able to offer customers market-leading quality of customer service.   

Phil Levermore, CEO of Ebico, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce this partnership with Octopus Energy which will greatly improve the quality of the service offered to our customers and will enable us, through the home energy supply market, to continue to make sustainable warmth affordable for everyone including, most importantly for us, households on lower incomes.  We are delighted that Octopus Energy shares our focus on the twin imperatives of home energy decarbonisation and affordability.  Together we are resolute that the interests of low-income households should not be forgotten in Britain’s transition to Net Zero.”
