EDF has been appointed as Supplier of Last Resort (SoLR) for Zog Energy, the latest casualty of the energy crisis.
Zog Energy announced that it was shuttering on 1 December, and that its 11,700 domestic customers would be taken on by another supplier.
Following a competitive process run by regulator Ofgem, EDF has been appointed as SoLR and all customers will be switched over on Saturday 4 December. Customer will be put onto the French energy giant’s standard variable prices automatically.
“We are very pleased that we can step in once more to support customers impacted by these most recent supplier failures,” said managing director for EDF’s Customers business Philippe Commaret
“Customers of Zog Energy Limited will understandably be concerned that their existing supplier has ceased trading, but I would like to reassure them that, with EDF, they are getting a reliable supplier who provide excellent service and a guaranteed, fair rate throughout winter.”
Zog Energy became the 27th supplier to shutter this year, with a surge in collapses since September driven by high power prices.
Goto Energy, Pure Planet, Colorado Energy, Daligas ENSTROGA, Igloo Energy, Symbio Energy, Hub Energy, Green Network Energy, Simplicity Energy, Avro Energy, Utility Point, People’s Energy, PfP Energy and MoneyPlus Energy have all also ceased to trade this year.
EDF has already taken on domestic customers from 360,000 former customers from Green Network Energy and 220,000 former customers of Utility Point this year as part of the SoLR mechanism.
