Barking and Dagenham Council launches green energy company, Beam Energy

Monday January 21st, 2019

Baking and Dagenham Council has today (Monday 21 January) launched its own greener energy provider, Beam Energy, to help its residents save on their fuel bills.london_44572_7984

All people need to do is get a two-minute quote and switch, for cheaper gas and electricity bills.

While the ‘Big Six’ energy companies have been forced to cap their energy prices to help customers deal with spiralling costs, Beam Energy is different because it is not-for-profit, doesn’t pay out bonuses to shareholders, and offers great Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) rates – often used by customers with the tightest budgets. In comparison to the ‘Big Six’ you could also make an average £91 saving on the most competitive fixed price tariffs.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Darren Rodwell said, “Nobody should pay more than they have to on their fuel bills. For too long prices have been increasing faster than most people can cope with, and we hear horror stories about people going without food and the bare essentials just so they can pay for heating to stay warm.

“As the winter sets in and London gets colder, I don’t want anyone in our community to be in that position. Beam Energy is about fair prices, not bonuses and shareholders getting pay outs.

“At the local elections last year, we promised to set up an energy company that would help local people with their bills as the cost of living rises. I’m delighted that we’ve been able to deliver on that pledge so quickly.

“Beam Energy has been designed with our residents in mind – the call centres are based in the UK, the number is free to call, and we have some of the best Pay-As-You-Go rates around – while other energy providers tend to penalise these customers. For these customers, there is the added benefit of being able to top-up via SMS text, phone, online or at any of the PayPoint outlets.

“Switching is always seen as a pain, but it really only does take two minutes to get a quote.”
