Planet9 was born to change the way businesses buy electricity

Businesses in the GB market are paying too much for electricity, and trying to find a better price is far more frustrating than it needs to be. That’s because the current market offerings are oriented to benefit the supplier and not the customer. Complicated price structures, confusing contracts and bad billing make it impossible to know if you’re getting the best deal – so we decided to try something different.

We are a technology company who supply electricity

Founder’s Story

Peter Murphy has over three decades of experience in the energy sector

In 2016 Peter founded Planet9 when he asked himself one simple question: what is a supplier? They don’t generate electricity, so really their job is just to send bills. Yet there’s plenty of research to indicate that they’re not doing that right! Peter looked for the cause of the problem, and found outdated legacy systems that were unable to cope with the large amounts of data. By moving all this data into the cloud, Planet9 could move well beyond just providing bills, but also cost forecasts and consumption analytics.This is how we believe electricity buying should be, and we’re on a mission to change the industry.
