What are our current refer a friend offers?

Right now, we’re offering you up to £25 free credit when your friend switches to Ecotricity using your unique referral link. (We’ve sent you an email with full details on this offer.)

We also have other offers including vouchers for Ethical Superstore when your friends switch to us. 

Find out more and choose the best offer for you in the Ecotricity app. You can download the app from the App Store and Google Play.

How it works

We give you a unique referral link when you join us that you can share with friends, family, neighbours or colleagues.

When your friend clicks the link and switches to Ecotricity, we’ll know that you’re the one doing the referring - so both you and your friend will be sent your referral offer.

Or they can call us on 0808 123 0 123 and mention your name and the offer to one of our friendly agents in Stroud.

After they’re officially on supply with us, which takes the energy industry 21 days to complete, you’ll both receive your referral offer within 4 weeks. If you don’t receive it by then, please email us at

Where can I find my referral link?

You can find your unique referral link in the Ecotricity app. From the Home screen, just tap on ‘Spread the word’.

If you don’t already have the app, you can download it now from the App Store and Google Play.

Why should my friend switch to Ecotricity?

You’re with us because you get it. This is the important stuff, helping to end fossil fuels and fight the climate crisis. If your friend asks why they should switch, here’s our top three reasons: 

1. We’ll turn their bills into mills. 

We were the world’s first green energy company. Since we were founded, we’ve built 74 windmills and a solar farm. In 2021, we’re building two new solar farms and bringing the very first geothermal energy to the national grid.

2. Our energy is the greenest you can get.

Greenwashing – claiming something is greener than it really is – has become widespread in the energy market. Some companies only trade green Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates (REGOs), which authenticate green energy itself. If you want a green outcome from your energy bills you need to be with a supplier like Ecotricity that builds new sources of green energy using renewable resources like the wind and the sun.

3. We’re recognised by Which? and Ethical Consumer magazine.

A study by Which? declared Ecotricity as one of the greenest energy suppliers in the UK. We’ve also been recommended as one of Ethical Consumer magazine's ‘Best Buys’.

Who can I refer to Ecotricity?

You can also refer as many people as you like to us. As it’s your personal recommendation, we’d suggest sticking to people you know.

There are only a handful of reasons why someone might not be eligible:

  • They’re already an Ecotricity customer

  • They didn’t use your referral link when signing up

  • If you already hold an account with us and want to refer yourself to set up Ecotricity as the supplier at a second property.

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
