As many of you will have seen in the press, Our Power, our local energy supply partner, has ceased trading. We heard about this when it was first made public. See here for Our Power’s announcement on their website. We were deeply disappointed and saddened that our partnership with Our Power, to supply electricity from our projects to local people, has come to an end in this way.
Ofgem have just issued a press release announcing that Our Power customers have been transferred to Utilita, see here, though people can switch away to someone else if they wish. Ofgem also provides answers to common questions and advice about what to do, including switching, here. Contact details for further information can be found in the links provided and/or the email from Utilita for those that have been directly affected.
We still believe in the approach to supplying local energy that we developed with Our Power and B&NES Council, and over the coming months we will explore how best we can continue to deliver local power to local people.
