Bristol City Council (England) has dropped Bristol Energy as a green energy provider – despite owning it and having invested £15 million into the business. The council said it had to follow strict procurement rules and competitively tender its utilities contracts in line with public sector procurement regulations. The firm’s managing director said: “Last year we did have the council’s energy supply but unfortunately this year British Gas marginally undercut us on the council contract … We were set up to support Bristol residents and help tackle fuel poverty in our city … We have very competitive deals for homes and for businesses. However it’s important that the council goes through a process when choosing suppliers, including where its energy comes from.” The fuller story is on Bristol Live where you can also read comments from the local community.
