Fairerpower: Reviews, tariffs & login

Fairerpower's partnership with Ovo has endedFairerpower, the Cheshire East Council run energy supplier, and Fairerpower Red Rose are no longer in service. Customers will continue to receive their gas and electricity from Ovo Energy and can still make use of their Fairerpower online accounts.

Fairerpower was an energy supplier set up by Cheshire East council to supply gas and electricity to Cheshire residents and to Lancashire residents under the name Fairerpower Red Rose. The supplier worked in partnership with Ovo Energy; Fairerpower set the tariff and promotes the service, while Ovo Energy took care of supplying electricity, metering, billing and collection.


Reviews

To get an idea of the service provided by Fairerpower, we have taken a look at the energy supplier's profile on the customer review website Trustpilot, where it received a below-average Trustscore of 2.2 out of 5.

Of the small sample available on the website, the majority of customers (80%) rated the supplier 'Bad', the lowest rating on on the site. The remaining 20% were split between 'Poor' and 'Average'.

Prices appeared to be a sticking point, with many claiming that they were surprised by high prices and sudden bill increases. One reviewer noted that they would not have saved any money by switching from one of the larger energy suppliers.

As I am currently with EDF (a Big 6 company) on a 12 month fixed deal until March next year I asked for a quote based on my annual usage. [Fairerpower's] quote of £129 per month/£1548 per annum was £383 per annum more than I currently pay - an increase of a massive 33%. Robert Lambert, Fairerpower customer, Trustpilot

Fairerpower worked in partnership with Ovo Energy to supply energy to households, so where its energy cames from depended on how Ovo sourced its supply. At the time of its closure, Fairerpower's electricity mix was 84.6% natural gas and 15.4% renewables.
