Going green is top of the agenda globally and our homes are 20-25% of emissions. So, to hit net zero targets, we have to make homes greener. There’s massive momentum from government, business and households.
This means energy for households is becoming even more complex. Imagine not just switching suppliers, but trying to decide whether to get solar, a heat pump or a battery. What’s the cost, energy saving or carbon impact?
We want a world where, with the push of a button, homeowners can find the right energy for them. We’re empowering users to get a green home, with MakeMyHouseGreen, and get the best deal on their remaining grid energy with Switchd auto-switching.
Our proprietary tech platform models the benefits of various green home solutions, such as insulation, and enables a smooth install experience. Our data shows we’ve really hit the button with solving the user need, backed up by incredible feedback and conversion rates.
Change is happening fast. Our energy expertise, access to data and tech capability mean we aim to be the driving force in the green home movement!
We’re backed by prominent Angels, Inspired Energy and Nationwide Building Society, who are promoting us to their 15.5m members.
