Why it’s better

We often get asked why the Council decided to set up energetik and embark on such an ambitious, large scale project.

The short answer is we believe we can do it right.

As we’re owned by the local authority, we can look beyond short-term profit gain and concentrate on building excellent quality. Most of all, we can make sure we put our customers first.

Here are the reasons we’re proud to describe how our business is great.

  • Better value

    We don’t charge a premium for low carbon heating, it’s just the way we do things. Our charges are stable, and we are honest about our tariffs.

    If we fail to upheld our high service level, our customers are entitled to compensation, known as a service-failure payment. The values of these payments are updated yearly in accordance with the Heat Trust’s indexation.
