About Link Energy
Every idea starts with a problem, and ours was simple: energy has become a commodity. We flick the switch, the bulb flickers on and each month we pay the bill (boring, we know). Now more than ever, the energy industry has more competition, more choice, more clarity, and more power for consumers like you. So how do you end up choosing a supplier? Is it the price? The customer service?
It turns out there was a simple explanation. The energy industry is dominated by a handful of companies that fight on pricing while still reaping huge profits from consumers. We started Link Energy to create an alternative.
