making a difference
PFP Energy is not only a supplier providing affordable energy with transparent prices, but a not-for-profit company that cares about the communities of its customers.
We’re different to other energy suppliers
PFP Energy is proud to be a not-for-profit energy company, or as we like to call it ‘Profit for Purpose’. We’re owned by a not-for-profit UK Housing Association, which means we can focus on the important things like supporting our customers and investing money where it’s needed.
Did you know that ‘PFP’ stands for ‘Profit for Purpose?’
Unlike many other energy companies, we don’t pay our company directors dividends or pay out large bonuses. We’re solely Profit for Purpose. We don’t spend customers’ money on large marketing and TV campaigns. Instead, we are a not-for-profit energy company underpinned by three key aims:
- Any Profit we make is for a Purpose
- We focus on supporting customers’ needs
- Your money goes back into improving services for all of our customers and into communities.
PFP in the community
Not only does PFP Energy focus on improving communities, but our teams wanted to do even more. Launching a community initiative in the latter part of 2019, our teams are proud to have already raised hundreds of £s in support of local and national charitable causes.
During December 2019 we sent food and clothing donations to the Foxton centre, a local charity providing support, safety and resources for vulnerable adults and young people in the area. This donation drive is alongside many other annual events and fundraisers that we hold to support both local and national charities.

We keep our costs down – and where we save, you save. For example, if you manage your account online, or pay by Direct Debit, you’ll get a nice discount.
