Interesting, I do wonder how they manage to cover their operating costs though.

I also guess they buy the cheapest energy on the market, regardless of how renewable it may or may not be? I couldn't find any solid info on the web site.

Interesting idea, though

I presume their operating costs are part of 'at cost' but they do not make profit.

Might be a load of poop but seems a better starting point than the thievery bastardiness of British Gas etc

rather curiously Atcostenergy say they will donate 50% of their profits to good causes, which is a bit odd for a no-profit company... Neutral

There is also

More than just a bit. One of their statements cannot be true.
Yes, I am with them. I'd been talking about setting up a non-profit energy (and phone) company, then promptly had a row with British Gas and found Ebico had beaten me to it... still a gap in the market for a non-profit phone company though (and maybe a non-prophet religion?).

One of the things I liked about Ebico was that their prices were straightforward, and easily found.
