Ofgem bans energy supplier from taking on new customers

This follows Ofgem’s concerns over Delta Gas and Power’s finances

Big Zero Report 2022

Business energy supplier Delta Gas and Power cannot enrol new customers to its services after the energy regulator raised concerns over its financial resilience.

Last week, Ofgem issued a provisional order to the company, which serves 1,690 business customers across the UK.

The regulator said the energy supplier failed to meet its “stress-test” assessments – for this reason, Ofgem ordered Delta to improve its financial position and prove it could operate effectively.

It added: “Until the terms of the order are met, Delta must refrain from all sales, marketing and customer acquisition activity, including the acquisition of any new non-domestic customers or upgrading of all existing non-domestic customers to dual fuel.”
