Diverse-Energy are a directory company who provide a call forwarding service for tier 1 and tier 2 energy suppliers across the UK. Along side providing contact numbers for energy providers in the UK we also like to provide as much information as possible to help with questions such as: Who is the cheapest Gas and Electric supplier? Which is the cheapest energy tariff? How to choose the best energy provider in the UK? We have also done the research for you on renewable energy sources and how to generate your own energy at home (you can thank us later!).
Today there are over 20 companies providing energy products and services to UK home and business owners. These companies are typically divided up into the 1st tier (composed of the Big Six) and the 2nd tier (composed mostly of ‘boutique’ energy companies and a few hybrids).

Getting in Touch with Your Energy Provider
It can often be difficult finding the right contact number for a particular energy supplier as most don’t display them easily and have you clicking through page after page on their website. Some energy providers don’t supply a telephone number at all and will only speak to customers through a contact form or via email, this can be a major inconvenience when there is an emergency and you need to get something resolved quickly.
Here at Diverse-Energy we provide a call forwarding service whereby we supply a contact number that will get your directly through to the energy company you are trying to reach. We are in no way associated with any of the companies we list or write about on this website, we simply do the research for you and provide the telephone numbers your need to save you have to spend time trying to find them.
