Pozitive Energy, SmartestEnergy, Utilita, British Gas and Yü Energy have all been appointed as Suppliers of Last Resort (SoLR) by Ofgem for the most recent energy suppliers to have shuttered.

Pozitive Energy will take on customers of CNG Energy and CNG Electricity, which collectively supply 41,000 non-domestic customers, while SmartestEnergy Business Limited is to take on customers of MA Energy, which supplies 300 non-domestic customers.

Utilita is to take on the customers of Omni Energy, which supplies 6,000 domestic pre-payment customers and British Gas will take on customers of Bluegreen Energy which suppliers 5,900 domestic customers and a small number of non-domestic, as well as Zebra Power’s 14,8000 domestic customers.

Lastly, Yü Energy will take on the customers of Ampower, which supplies 600 domestic and 2,000 non-domestic customers.

Over the last few months a significant number of energy suppliers have ceased to trade, partly driven by the high gas prices seen during this period. This includes Goto Energy, Pure Planet, Colorado Energy, Daligas, ENSTROGA, Igloo Energy, Symbio Energy, Avro Energy, Green Supplier Limited, People’s Energy, Utility Point, PfP Energy and MoneyPlus Energy.

Ofgem has since chosen SoLRs for the customers of these suppliers, with suppliers such as British Gas, E.ON Next, Shell Energy, Octopus and EDF having been appointed for the bulk of these.
