We’ve announced today that we’re lowering our monthly Membership fees for all Pure Planet Members, from 5 February 2019. Here’s a little bit more info for the community.
From today Pure Planet Membership fees are £8 per month per fuel (including VAT) — down from £8.50 – saving a dual fuel member £1 a month, or £12 a year.
This is on top of our existing dual fuel discount of £30 a year. Don’t worry - it applies to single fuel Members as well.
We’re lowering our Membership fees - that’s the fixed cost. It’s the equivalent of a standing charge. It covers: - Meter maintenance - Our operating costs - Our people costs - Our profit margin - VAT
We’re not changing our Members rate - that’s the amount you pay for energy.
Why we’re lowering our prices
As a digital-only energy supplier, we're continually improving our digital business model. We've made things more efficient, and we’re passing the savings on to you.
Didn’t you just put your prices up?
We increased our members rate recently, to reflect the rise in wholesale market prices. The renewable electricity and carbon offset gas we buy on your behalf is passed to you at zero markup - you pay what we pay and we don’t make any money on this.
We’re emailing all our Members today about the Membership fee price drop, and it’ll take effect immediately for both new and existing Members.
As it’s a relatively small change, we won’t be changing Direct Debit payments for now.
