Birmingham Community Energy Company – Public Consultation until 31/12/15

Birmingham City Council is considering entering into a partnership with an energy company to provide cheaper and more renewable energy to people living in Birmingham.  The Council’s role would be to help publicise the new company and sign-post vulnerable people and people in fuel poverty to this company though its own and it’s partners’ publicity teams.

The expectation is that the Community Energy Company would buy cheap energy and sell it on to people in Birmingham, and in particular to pass on any financial savings to the public. The energy company would run the other commercial aspects of the company such as: switching, metering, billing and customer service.

Public consultation on the proposed Community Energy Company runs to 31 December 2015 and will steer the Council’s decision which is likely to be in the Spring of 2016.
