Our Company History

We’re a young company, we’re ambitious, we’re driven, and we’re here to do things differently. We’re a new breed of energy supplier - one that promises to do more than just supply energy. We are connecting our members to new technologies and innovative ways to power their homes, so that they can be less reliant on the grid and more in control of how they generate, store and use their own energy.

"We are committed to helping the UK transition to renewable, sustainable energy and a zero carbon future for everyone."

How we started

Tonik Energy was started in 2016, founded on the belief that there was a better way of doing things; because the traditional relationship that people have with their energy supplier doesn’t work anymore. So we created something new. We have members not customers, because they are part of a movement that we are facilitating. We want to fundamentally change what an energy supplier is; and offer them the right products tools to help our members waste less energy.

Together we have built a brilliant team of highly skilled people, with a wealth of experience across the energy sector, as well as other industries.

Where we are now

We are honoured to be winners of the 2018 British Renewable Energy Award for Customer Service Recognition; 2018 StartUps Award for Best Place to Work and 2019 Moneyfacts Consumer Award for Energy Provider of the Year. Not to mention we’re in the top five of the 2019 Which? annual energy satisfaction survey and rated Excellent on Trustpilot.

We’ve also welcomed an award-winning, in-house clean-tech installations team – The Phoenix Works. Together we are delivering on our promise to put members in control of how they generate, store and use renewable energy through our solar panel, home-battery solutions and electric vehicle charging solutions.

As well as being a game changer in the energy industry, with a reputation for customer service excellence, we want to be a great place to work too!

Where we're going

We’re proud of what we have achieved so far, but we’re not done yet!  

Together with our members, we are building the home of the future now. By enabling households to generate and store energy, we are laying the bedrock for the inevitable rise of the prosumer – the customer who is able to sell renewably generated energy back to the grid, balance the grid and making dirty energy a thing of the past.

We are creating the UK’s newest and greenest power station without putting a single spade in the ground. We call it ‘The Tonik Power Plant’. We are building a community of members who can generate, store and sell renewable energy to one another and then back to the grid in times of high demand.
