Co-operative Energy (Slides and Video)

Ben Reid, CEO of The Midcounties Co-operative, talks to the National Retail Consumer Conference 2012 about Co-operative Energy taking on the "Big 6" suppliers.

Ben told the Conference about the hard work that Co-operative Energy has undertaken since its initial pre-launch in December 2012, building to a position of 20,000 customers (97% of whom become members) of whom 74% would recommend the organisation to a friend.

Ben put the success of the organisation down to hard work and the foresight to bring in professionals from the industry to lead the way, but also to the help and support of other co-operative organisations. As the organisations moves towards its goal of signing up its 45,000th customer during 2012, Ben was hopeful that soon - through work with the Co-operative Group - customers would be provided with a co-operative alternative right the way through from generation to trurning the light switch on in their home.

Co-operative Energy is one of the big success stories of the UK sector, with endorsement from its customers and Which? magazine. If you want more information about signing up, visit their website at
