Citizens Advice, in its role as the official consumer champion for energy, has responded to news that Extra Energy has ceased trading.
Gillian Guy, Chief Executive of Citizens Advice, said:
“Extra Energy customers should not worry, their gas and electricity will continue as normal. Ofgem will organise a new supplier who will be in touch in due course.
“In the meantime people should take meter readings and avoid switching until a new supplier has been put in place. By switching now people risk losing any refunds they might be entitled to.”
“Today’s news and other recent supplier failures again highlight how essential it is that suppliers operating in the market have sustainable business models.”
