When we launched in 2009, we set out to make energy cheaper, greener, and simpler. We brought great service, clear information, and honesty to a broken industry. These days our sights are set higher.
We believe that energy has the power to solve some of the world’s biggest, and most pressing problems – and we’re going to use it to do just that.
We’re blending natural energy with smart technology to bring you great service and renewable electricity, and your kids (and their kids) the future they deserve.
We don’t simply offer 100% renewable electricity like lots of other companies. We differ because we’re using technology to help build an energy system of the future, which means that one day our country can be solely powered by renewables.
On one level, lots of our projects simply help cut your energy bills and solve your problems. Things like revolutionising old storage heaters, installing smart meters, and turning lamp posts into electric vehicle chargers.
But it’s the technology behind them that really makes a difference. Tackling climate change and air pollution, while creating more clean, affordable energy for everyone.
From day one, we’ve always aimed to act as if our ‘customer is in the room’ with us. It’s helped us make the right decisions, win awards for our service, and build a business that’s better for everyone.
Take our charity, OVO Foundation, as an example. It’s so much more than a corporate tickbox. It’s a part of who we are.
Through OVO Foundation, we tackle youth poverty, access to energy, and educational inequality – both in our local communities and across the globe. Meanwhile, through our I Dig Trees programme we’ve planted almost half a million trees in the UK on behalf of our Green Energy customers.
We’re not after short-term fixes. It’s all about long-term change.
