How does the 20 percent thing work?
It’s really simple.
Switch your gas or electricity (or both) to Twenty Energy.
Nominate your favourite charity.
We allocate shares to your favourite charity (held in a Trust until we either float on the stock exchange or sell the business – hopefully in around five years).
- Your favourite charity receives a share of our annual income. Every year. Starting now. We’re aiming to share 1.5 percent our income each year (in five years, we expect that to be around £2.5 million* donated to charity every single year).
- When we float or sell, your favourite charity can either keep the shares or sell them to generate funds. We’re conservatively estimating that our charity partners will receive a share of £20 million*.
That means your everyday energy consumption is donating money to charity! And it doesn’t cost you a penny more. In fact, it’s likely to save you money.

Our green energy ambition
Our aim is to offer 100 percent renewable energy. But we’re not there yet. Presently, there simply isn’t enough renewable energy production to meet demand, despite what some of our competitors would have you believe.
