Green, a new energy supplier based in the North East, has launched offering intelligent tariffs, ground-breaking apps and low-cost energy to consumers across the UK.
Green hopes to create a smart energy ‘revolution’ as it launches a new tool to help customers to save money and the planet through intelligent technology and thousands of customers have already made the switch within the first month of operations.
The new app, thought to be the first of its kind to help people buy and manage their energy usage at the touch of a button, will lead to the creation of a number of new jobs at the Core in Newcastle City Centre with the company planning rapid expansion as even more consumers opt to switch to their platform.
Green’s technology is developed in-house and gives customers the option of being able to access real-time forecasting and insights and switch tariffs with ease. Customers can also make payments quickly and easily within the app, using Apple and Google pay.
The tool can be connected to a smart meter in homes across the UK which Green will supply free of charge and features include live chat, forecasting, payment insights, Face ID and Touch ID.
Speaking about the new business Steven Redmayne, operations director at Green, said: “We know that action-based technology with the functionality to complete purchases via buy-buttons is rapidly changing the way we communicate.
“We believe our tool will help consumers buy and manage their energy supply, giving them a much clearer picture of how they can make informed choices to cut costs and save each month.”
As the name suggests, Green only supplies 100% renewable electricity to its customers, with energy being produced from sustainable sources including wind, solar and hydro. The business believes this will appeal to its market as consumers are becoming increasingly savvier when it comes to purchasing their energy, moving away from fossil fuels to more sustainable sources.
The creation of the new app has also helped the company reduce its overall running costs enabling it to pass on the savings to customers via competitive tariffs.
Steven continued: “As a North East business, we are delighted to be launching this new technology here in our region and creating jobs as a result.
“As an accredited employer displaying the Living Wage Employer Mark – we are firmly committed to providing all of our people with the relevant training and development needs as we look to grow our business.”
Customers of Green will also be able to use the interactive website or call into the team to manage their account and make any changes or updates with the customer care team being available 24/7. The company will be following Ofgem policies and procedures to ensure that its customers receive the very highest standards of customer care.
