Small British power supplier Good Energy has nearly doubled its domestic gas customers in a year.
From 11,000 gas customers last June, this jumped to 20,000 by June 2014.
Electricity customers also rose by a third (35%) from 34,000 to 46,000 over the year to June 2014.
The company which markets itself on “green” electricity and gas released its figures for the first half of 2014 yesterday.
Business customers are also an “important part” of the supplier’s plans to get more customers, stated the financial update, with a supply contract with the retailer SuperGroup recently renewed and another with the Eden Project due to start this autumn.
Chief Executive Juliet Davenport put the “strong customer growth” so far this year down to “competitive” pricing, 100% renewable electricity and “award-winning customer service”.
The firm now has generating contracts in place with 800 independent generator supply sites, with a target of 200MW worth of owned generation.
Ms Davenport added the importance “of greener, cleaner, more secure” electricity projects “is highlighted by continued political uncertainty in Eastern Europe”.
