Great North Energy


Great North Energy is part of a new wave of not-for-profit energy companies set up by local authorities.

Great North Energy launched in 2017 to offer low cost gas and electricity to residents in and around Doncaster, and provide a not-for-profit alternative to the Big Six energy suppliers.

The company is a partnership between Doncaster Council and Robin Hood Energy, the not-for-profit energy provider launched by Nottingham City Council. The electricity it supplies is 100% renewable, from wind and solar sources.

Great North Energy says a priority is to help people on prepayment meters, who tend to be poorer users paying higher rates, by offering new meters and keeping prepayment costs relatively low.
