Tenants are being offered what’s called a “fixed price green energy option” ahead of another fuel price hike this autumn.
The deal comes from technology platform Muuvo which has partnered with the Rebel Energy company.
No details of the pricing have been released but Rebel Energy chief executive Dan Bates says: “We are delighted to be partnering with Muuvo and bringing our innovative, fixed price, green energy products to their users and, at a particularly challenging time economically, help tenants and homeowners better control their costs.”
Rebel Energy provides energy from 100 per cent renewable sources and describes its three-point strategy as being, firstly, pricing “that does not target the poor”, secondly the improvement of credit scores, and thirdly securing extra grants and benefits for customers.
The Muuvo platform uses data to identify what it calls “best in class” suppliers and speed up the registration of new tenants.
It claims this enables lettings agents to access all the information required when setting up a tenancy and registering tenants for council tax, water, gas and electricity.
Once located, tenants are invited to use the service and register their interest and are also given opportunities to review suppliers and add products and services such as broadband and TV.
Muuvo says agents benefit from faster processes and a share in revenues generated by a tenant switching or taking new products and services, not only at the outset of a tenancy, but on any subsequent renewal.
