About the employer

In 2013-14 trust in the energy suppliers was lower than bankers and politicians. We started So Energy because it doesn’t have to be this way. By keeping things simple and using the latest technology to ensure we operate as efficiently as possible, we keep our costs to a minimum and pass the savings onto our customers.

We’re the only energy company to have its own Low Price Commitment.

We supply 100% renewable electricity and we're the only energy company to let customers choose where we source our electricity from.

We’re a diverse bunch at So Energy and we’re proud of that. We’ve got engineers, data scientists and ex-teachers working together to do the best we can for our customers. Whether it's answering your emails or phone calls, sorting out your meter, or buying the gas and electricity itself, we've got it covered.
