Pros and cons of Igloo Energy

Pros

  • Supplies 100% renewable electricity. Igloo Energy ensures that all of the electricity it supplies is generated from 100% renewable sources, via the government’s Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO) scheme.
  • Competitive pricing. Igloo Energy regularly appears as one of the most affordable variable tariffs.
  • Offers smart technology products. Igloo Energy customers can opt to install heat pumps and smart meters.

Cons

  • Only one tariff. Igloo Energy only offers one tariff, a variable deal. This means it isn’t possible to lock in a fixed price for a set period.

Our verdict: Is Igloo Energy any good?

For tech-savvy customers who value the convenience of being able to manage their account via an app in the palm of their hand, Igloo Energy could be a great option. Its simple pricing and single tariff offering mean that it’s relatively easy to compare its supply prices with other suppliers. If you want to switch away you won’t be subject to any exit fees.

Its 100% renewable electricity tariff will also appeal to environment-conscious households.
