You’ve Got the Power
Bath & West Community Energy are delighted that as a result of an innovative collaboration with not-for-profit energy supplier Our Power and B&NES Council, for the first time you will be able to show your support for local renewable energy by signing up to the Our Local Green Energy tariff.
As Bath & West Community Energy, we will be supplying electricity from our projects as well as playing a major role in helping to promote the tariff to local people.
The Our Power In B&NES scheme offers local people the choice of two new energy supply deals:
- The ‘Our Local Green Energy’ tariff offers local households the chance to buy 100% renewable electricity, which is locally generated and community owned wherever possible, using green energy from B&NES and the surrounding area.
- The ‘Our Fairer Energy’ tariff is one of the cheapest dual fuel tariffs available on the market for pre-payment customers.
Further information – including full details of how to sign up to the tariffs – is available on https://our-power.co.uk/bathnes
Our Local Green Energy
The ‘Our Local Green Energy’ tariff, supplied by Our Power, will provide 100% renewable electricity, the majority of which has been generated within the B&NES district and nearby area. It can be bought stand alone or combined with standard gas to create a dual fuel deal.
As well as being local, the power will come from schemes that are community owned wherever possible. This helps keep even more of the benefits within our local economy.

Our Fairer Energy
The ‘Our Fairer Energy’ tariff, supplied by Our Power, is one of the cheapest dual fuel tariffs available on the market for pre-payment customers. It offers one simple, low-cost, standard variable tariff for all customers, whether they chose to pay via Pay As You Go or by Direct Debit, and includes smart meters with an inbuilt ‘friendly credit’ feature (which provides emergency credit if customers run out at evenings or weekends).
In line with Our Power’s social mission, all profits go back to keeping bills as low as possible and helping those who need it most.
