About Outfox the Market

One of the newest energy suppliers to enter the UK energy market, Outfox the Market was launched in 2017 to help households cut both their energy bills and their carbon footprint. It does this by tracking the wholesale energy market to provide cheaper rates and by offering 100% renewable, clean wind electricity.

100% of the green energy provided by Outfox the Market is generated from offshore UK wind farms, which helps benefit both the environment and the UK economy too. As per the guidelines set by Ofgem, the UK energy regulator, every unit of electricity supplied to customers can be traced and verified as coming from a renewable source via Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) certificates.

Outfox the Market estimates that the renewable energy it provides helps to prevent more than 1.1 tonnes of carbon from entering the atmosphere every year.

Who owns Outfox the Market?

Outfox the Market is an independent UK energy company that was set up by Keith and Maria Bastian, who also run a number of energy-related firms, including Blue Fox Utilities, Fix Your Tariff, Foxglove Energy Supply and Fischer Energy.

This network of companies is run from Frog Island, close to Leicester city centre.
