Ofgem has announced that GB Energy Supply has ceased trading and that it will be finding a new supplier for the firm’s 160,000 customers.
Citizens Advice Director of Energy Victoria MacGregor said:
“Although GB Energy Supply has gone out of business, customers don’t need to worry. This shouldn’t affect their gas and electricity supply so they’ll still be able to heat and light their home as normal.
“The energy regulator Ofgem is finding a new supplier for GB Energy Supply customers. The new supplier will contact customers in due course. Customers will need to take a reading of their gas and electricity meters for their new supplier.
“We’re working closely with Ofgem to make sure people can get the help they need.”
Customers can find more information on Ofgem’s website.
