Let’s face it, the energy sector doesn’t have a great reputation.

We’ve all heard the horror stories. You might have been hit with an astronomically high energy bill or witnessed a general lack of customer service.

At Branch Energy, we’re doing things differently.

We build software that makes it easy for consumers to reduce their energy bills and carbon footprints. We help our customers save money and save the planet. It’s a win-win.

With a combination of empathy and a whole lot of data, we’re able to offer our customers green energy at a fixed rate that’s competitive with the financial cost of the greenhouse gas emitting stuff (never mind the long-term implications on our environment).

Why Branch?
