Ebico Ltd is a not-for-profit gas and electricity supplier aiming to offer a better, fairer deal for domestic energy to British households. We are also an expanding enterprise committed to working both for social justice and the wise use of the earth’s resources, in a variety of ways.
We supply gas and electricity throughout Britain and charge our customers the same rate, regardless of payment method, usage or whether you take one, or both, services from us. Also, we don’t have a standing charge so you know you will only be paying for what you use. Ebico might be a unique energy provider, but we’re not new! We have been trading for over 10 years, making a genuine difference to low-income households.
How does it work
Energy suppliers give discounts to customers who pay by Direct Debit, but charge a higher rate to customers who use prepayment meters. We feel this is unfair and wrong! The majority of households using prepayment meters are on a low income and yet these high rates are pushing more and more low income households into fuel poverty. We charge one flat rate to all, creating a fair, competitive, price for all customers and great savings, in particular for prepayment customers.
Why not sign up to our EquiGas and EquiPower tariffs? You’ll get a fair price for your home energy and be helping us get lower prices to low income households.

The Ebico Trust for Sustainable Development
Since we launched EquiGas in 1999, Ebico has been helping householders who have to budget carefully with prepayment meters. With the Ebico Trust for Sustainable Development we aim to go one stage further. The Ebico Trust is a registered charity which enables us to support initiatives to improve the energy efficiency of the homes of low income householders and offer support and advice on saving energy – thereby reducing their fuel bills still further.
The Ebico Trust for Sustainable Development, amongst other things, financially supports local projects that carry out material improvements in the condition of properties – particularly those occupied by low incomes householders – so as to make them cheaper to heat.
We invite applications for funding from organisations who wish us to support projects that tackle fuel poverty in sustainable ways, whether by offering advice, guidance or education, or by making practical and sustainable improvements to the material conditions of properties occupied by those in, or likely to be in, fuel poverty. The Trustees also wish to support those undertaking research into fuel poverty, its incidence and the various methods by which it may be tackled.
The Trustees of the Ebico Trust for Sustainable Development meet to consider grant applications on a quarterly basis (January, April, July, October). As a guide for applicants, the Trust has made grants ranging in size between £20k and £60k, but this should not preclude applicants for smaller sums. More details on the application process can be found here.
