Council and social enterprises to offer energy switching service for business

Glasgow People's Energy was launched at the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and its first stage will focus on providing an independent and impartial energy switching service for the city's businesses and third sector organisations.

To illustrate what an energy switching service can do for a business or enterprise, the Wise Group has saved over 8% on energy costs after a review carried out by Citrus Energy.

From this first stage, the aim is then to develop the service to provide an energy switching service for domestic customers, especially fuel poor households.

A memorandum of understanding between the partners means that the scheme will be in place for a minimum of five years. 

The service will have a dedicated team dealing with enquiries for Glasgow properties, and this team can be contacted on the following free phone number: 0800 112 4059 or email

The service is now live.

Councillor Frank McAveety, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "This energy switching service promises to be of great benefit, first to our businesses and third sector organisations and later to Glasgow households.  Glasgow City Council is committed to tackling fuel poverty for our residents and businesses, and I am sure Glasgow People's Energy will make a real social and economic difference to the city.  I am delighted that the council is working with our partners the WISE Group and Citrus Energy to deliver this service."
