Ebico Ltd is a not-for-profit gas and electricity supplier aiming to offer a better, fairer deal for domestic energy to British households. We are also an expanding enterprise committed to working both for social justice and the wise use of the earth’s resources, in a variety of ways.We supply gas and electricity throughout Britain and charge our customers the same rate, regardless of payment method, usage or whether you take one, or both, services from us. Also, we don’t have a standing charge so you know you will only be paying for what you use.
Ebico might be a unique energy provider, but we’re not new! We have been trading for over 10 years, making a genuine difference to low-income households. How does it work? Energy suppliers give discounts to customers who pay by Direct Debit, but charge a higher rate to customers who use prepayment meters. We feel this is unfair and wrong! The majority of households using prepayment meters are on a low income and yet these high rates are pushing more and more low income households into fuel poverty. We charge one flat rate to all, creating a fair, competitive, price for all customers and great savings, in particular for prepayment customers.
In a nut shell…….. We offer fair priced gas and electricity. We provide one simple flat rate for all *We deliver high levels of customer satisfaction**We offer a full range of customer support facilities through our supply partners, Scottish & Southern Energy Plc. We provide easy to read bills, online bill facilities and automated meter read lines to update your account. We offer you the chance to be part of a wider community; by choosing our Equigas and Equipower tariffs you will be helping us help those who find heating and lighting their homes adequately a real challenge.* If your electricity meter has a fixed standing charge and unit rate, we’ll refund the difference between this and the Equipower tariff.**We recently received a top 2 rating in Which!
