Hayden Wood and Amit Gudka
Hayden Wood and Amit Gudka co-founded Bulb to address growing concerns over the environment and the rising cost of energy. Together, the two entrepreneurs established an energy business that strives to make energy simpler, cheaper and greener.
“We both worked in the old industry”, says Hayden, “and saw how it was too complex, too expensive and too dirty. It doesn’t have to be like that.” Bulb keeps things simple by offering just one low tariff for gas and electricity, and uses the latest technology to reduce costs.
All of Bulb’s electricity and 10% of its gas come from renewable energy. By switching to Bulb, the entrepreneurs suggest each member can reduce their carbon emissions by 1.9 tonnes per year. That’s the same as taking 1.3 cars off the road.
The Bulb mantra of simplicity and excellent customer service has paid off. In just two years, the business has reached over 100,000 members and is the number one energy supplier on Trustpilot. In the past year alone, its member base has grown by almost 4000%. As the cheapest 100% renewable supplier and rates 20% lower than the Big Six, Bulb is leading the way for simpler, cheaper, and greener energy.
