We’ve announced today that our monthly membership fees are going down for all our Pure Planet members from 1 May 2018. Here’s a little bit more info for the community.
Membership fees are now £8.50 per month per fuel (including VAT) — down from £10 – saving a dual fuel member £3 a month, or £36 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.
You may have seen in the news that British Gas, EDF and Scottish Power have put their prices up in recent weeks. We’re really excited to buck the trend. Why we’re lowering our prices
We’ve had a great first year at Pure Planet. It began simply, with a soft-launch in May last year – thank you to those early adopters who supported us and gave us feedback during those first few months.
We officially launched in September. Since then, we’ve continuously invested in improving our app, our operations and the industry processes behind the scenes. We’re creating a smarter, more sustainable and efficient business, so that we can pass those 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, but the positive difference will show up on your balance. The price drop means annual savings of 4% on average.
Now that we’ve been going for a year, we’ve done some CO2 savings sums. An average medium usage Pure Planet Member will save a whopping 3,347 kilograms of CO2 per year. That’s roughly the same as planting 1,673 trees.
