Union Energy

Endorsed by over 50 trade unions for its excellent value, Union Energy was established to provide cheaper gas and electricity to trade union members six years ago and the company, whose fuel is supplied by ScottishPower, has already attracted thousands of union members.


In addition to initial savings and on-going competitive prices, Union Energy customers also benefit from free Payment Protection** worth up to £400. In the event of either voluntary or compulsory redundancy, a customer's energy account will be credited with up to £400 (£200 for gas and £200 for electricity) to pay their energy bills when they need help the most.


There is very little hassle involved in switching to Union Energy. No new pipes, cables or meters are required so there is no disruption to your home, and you can even switch over the phone to avoid filling in an application form.  What's more, in the unlikely event that customers are unhappy with the service, they just need to give Union Energy 28 days' notice and they are free to switch to another energy supplier.

To find out how much you could save, call Union Energy on 0800 027 9000.

Union Energy has launched a new initiative to reward existing customers with £15 of Marks & Spencer vouchers every time they introduce a friend or colleague to Union Energy who then becomes a gas and electricity customer. For further information on the "Introduce a friend" scheme, existing customers should call Mike Jones on 020 7467 1274 or email:

**Further information on Union Energy Payment Protection is available on request.
