Bulb US LLC applied for an Option 1 Texas retail electric provider certificate
Bulb US LLC is an affiliate of U.K. retail energy supplier Bulb, which offers exclusively renewable electricity and carbon neutral gas
Bulb describes itself as the U.K.'s biggest green supplier
In the U.K., Bulb touts that it only offers a single tariff (plan) for each commodity, which Bulb says is one of the lowest on the market, renewable or not. Bulb does not charge exit fees.
Of its U.K. offering, Bulb states on its website: "How do we do this? We invest in technology to help us keep our costs low. And we only partner with companies that do the same. And honestly? We just make lower profits than our competitors. Then pass the savings on to you."
Bulb further states, "Too many suppliers tease customers in with low fixed tariffs before moving them on to an expensive standard tariff a few months down the line. We don't think that's right."
"With our single, 'Vari-Fair' tariff, you know you're always on our best possible price. And that price reflects the true cost of energy. When wholesale energy costs move, so does our tariff. If they go up, we work hard to limit increases to our members and always give 60 days notice. And if they go down, we quickly pass those savings on to you," Bulb states of its U.K. offer
In the U.K., Bulb is a certified B-Corp, and for every new member that switches to Bulb, the company donates £2 towards Edible Playgrounds by Trees for Cities, a charity building vibrant, outdoor spaces in inner-city schools.
