As part of Ujima’s Love Season, the UK’s best community radio station has teamed up with Bristol Energy and the city’s poet laureate Miles Chambers, to celebrate the city in the month of love.
The local gas and electricity supplier was set up by Bristol City Council to help people pay less for their energy bills.
And instead of profits disappearing into the pockets of private shareholders, Bristol Energy will reinvest its profits back into its founding city.
Despite there being more choice than ever in the energy market, (more than 40 suppliers) it’s thought that around two thirds of Bristolians remain on expensive standard variable deals, paying hundreds of pounds more than they need to.
By releasing a 30 second film with local poet Miles Chambers this Valentine’s Day, the company hopes to inspire more people to switch away from the Big Six, and join an energy company that will give back to local communities.
Miles Chambers, Bristol’s poet laureate, said:
“There is so much potential in this city for doing good. The poem is not just about Bristol’s incredible energy, it’s a call out to the city to jump up and take action. If your love your city, get behind it. Support it. Let’s utilise the potential of us all.”
Bristol Energy is a national energy supplier but saves its most competitive deal for people with a Bristol postcode. www.bristol-energy.co.uk
