The Pure Planet app offers totally digital services in a competitive and easy to use way, allowing customers to quickly switch to clean energy sources.
Using an artificial intelligence chatbot known as ‘WattBot', everything, including customer service, is done digitally and available 24/7.
With an easy to use and dynamic app design, Pure Planet makes switching to renewable energy accessible to a larger demographic.

Pure Planet, which was incorporated in 2015, is the only small independent energy supplier to be a signatory of the UN Global Compact. The company supports numerous carbon offset projects and is working to make renewables the mass market of consumer choice.
The Pure Planet app can be downloaded from Apple App store or Google Play.
