Best 10 Energy Providers
for 2020

The Best Energy Providers in the UK based on student reviews collected over 2019.



Bulb is a really great energy provider. It's priced competitively with other non-renewable providers, yet it is 100% renewable! No issues to report.



Customer service was quick and efficient, both with setting up and closing my account. The bills were always received by post AND by email which was handy.


Octopus Energy

Great company and great customer service! I love that they offer renewable energy and when our bills have occasionally bounced they have been very friendly.


Scottish Power

Always a fantastic service provided. Have been with them for over a year and never had an issue. It's always amazing customer service and value for money.


British Gas

Very easy to set up with them over the phone. I'd never had to set up anything like this before and they made it a breeze.


OVO Energy

We have been with OVO energy for 2 years now and they have been extremely helpful and the price is good.



Good value for money, provided a free smart meter installation which has helped us reduce our energy consumption.


So Energy

Joined So Energy back in October and I'm so glad I moved from edf. Excellent customer service, reasonable exit fees and brilliant service.


First Utility

Reasonably priced and customer service is always excellent. I have been with many different energy providers as a student and first utility is my first choice.



Glide is sufficient and fast, perfect for students. Good money for value as well. Not had any problems with the service and have used glide throughout my second year studies.
