Pathway to COP26 report

Ofgem has appointed Shell Energy to take on nearly a quarter of a million customers from suppliers that went under last week.

The company will continue supplying gas and electricity to customers of Pure Planet, Daligas and Colorado Energy.

The regulator said that funds being paid by existing and former domestic customers of the suppliers will be protected.

Customers of all three suppliers will be contacted in the coming days to be informed about the changes.

Neil Lawrence, Ofgem’s Director of Retail, said: “I am pleased to announce we have appointed Shell for the customers of Pure Planet, Daligas and Colorado Energy.

“We understand that this news may be unsettling for customers, however, they do not need to worry. Their energy supply will continue as normal and customer credit balances will be honoured.”
