We're delighted to announce that, on 8 October 2019, we signed an agreement for Shell Energy Retail to acquire our business.
Subject to regulatory approvals, we expect the sale to be completed by the end of 2019.
What does this mean for our customers?
Our customers won't see any change at this time and don't need to do anything; their energy supply, their plan terms and the way their energy account is handled will remain the same.
They will also continue to benefit from 100% renewable electricity at no extra cost.
Our number one priority is to ensure our customers continue to receive great service.
