The Co-operative Energy is a British energy supply company based in Warwick that began trading in 2010. It is an alternative to the Big Six energy firms and, given that its parent is Midcounties Co-operative, it is the only co-operative supplier in the market.[1]

History[edit]

Co-operative Energy launched in 2010 as an alternative to the Big Six energy suppliers. Any member of the Midcounties Co-operative can share in the profits from The Co-operative Energy.

The company currently has three sites with one office in Warwick and two offices in Walsall.

In 2012, Co-operative Energy was awarded the Which Positive Change Award, which recognises a company that has made significant changes to give its customers a better deal.[2]

In 2014, User Chooser was launched by Co-operative Energy to allow customers to choose where their Electricity is sourced from.[3] This service won the EU Sustainable Energy Europe Award in 2015.[4]

Controversies[edit]

An upgrade to its online customer service and billing system in 2015 resulted in a number[clarification needed] of customer service problems.
