Shell Energy Retail completes acquisition of Green Star Energy and Hudson Energy

By: The Shell Energy Team

Today we completed the deal to buy Hudson Energy Supply UK Limited, which trades as Green Star Energy for consumers and Hudson Energy for businesses.

We’re excited to welcome their customers and our new colleagues into the Shell Energy Retail family to be part of our journey towards a better energy future.

We think this is good news for the approximately 200,000 customers of Green Star Energy. For now they’ll continue on their existing tariffs and pricing, with 100% renewable electricity as standard. In time we’ll look to extend our additional benefits like 3% discount on fuel via the Shell Go+ app (up to 60 litres, per household, per month), discounted Electric Vehicle chargers and a range of smart home technology like Nest thermostats.

For both Hudson Energy and Green Star Energy customers, nothing changes at this stage. We’ll now take time to integrate the two companies in a way that prioritises the customer experience. We’ll be in touch with customers as soon as we have more to update.
