- Our Story Here at Cactus Energy, we know that the transition to renewable power is inevitable. It’s not a question of if, but when. Not only are renewables vital in reducing carbon emissions and fighting climate change, but they will eventually become the only option for energy production. While solar and wind energy are getting cheaper by the week, oil and gas are getting more and more expensive. One day, they will run out completely. The Cactus story started with a man called Tom Schofield. Having worked in the energy sector for several years, Tom decided that he could do it better. He knew there was a way to get cheaper and cleaner energy to people, being driven by passion rather than profit. He was quickly proved right, and thus the Cactus community was born.
