For the past year or so I have had my gas and electricity supply billed by a company called Ebico. It is a not-for-profit Christian social enterprise, inspired by the gospel to be founded on these principles:
- To seek out ways to support those most disadvantaged by dominant market trends.
- To redress the bias towards profit in the energy market by offering viable alternatives that are equitable and fair.
- To initiate and practise wise stewardship of resources.
When it comes to fuel bills, most people just look to pay the least amount for themselves - why not think differently? I've found Ebico to be both economical and ethical: I not only pay a decent price but I'm contributing to them helping others as well.
The other positive about choosing a company like this is that you can tell the door-to-door energy salespeople that you've made your choice for an ethical reason, not just to make savings, and they don't have an answer to that!
