He doesn't have to be fussy when they're queuing up for him.

Quote from The Sun Money:
CUSTOMERS are being warned that Bulb could be the next energy supplier to go bust.

The UK's seventh largest energy firm is reported near collapse, risking leaving 1.7 million customers in the dark.

Sky News reports that officials and regulators are on standby for Bulb to announce it will cease trading as early as next week.

It would be the latest in a string of providers to collapse.

There were reports that Bulb was near to collapse last month as it emerged the firm was seeking funding.

But The Sun now understands hopes of a rescue deal could be fading.

One company which was considering a takeover of Bulb has reportedly says the firm has liabilities of around £1bn, which made a "solvent takeover of the company hard to envisage".
Not quite in the dark as the lecky will still be there.

Re: Energy companies collapse

I imagine a hefty subsidy will be needed for an energy supplier to take on Bulb's customers as the difference between the capped prices and the prices the new company would have to pay in the market for energy for a large number of customers would be loss-making otherwise.

as someone on a low fixed income the next year is causing me great anxiety tbh. I am already actively avoiding using the heating in favour of blankets but at some point I will need it to stop pipes freezing and damn and then next year when it all goes up again is quite scary

"Martin Lewis

Pls share.

Sky reports energy firm Bulb UK may go under imminently. Many consumers panic asking me "should I switch now?" My answer is no.
- You're on a price capped tariff. Nowt cheaper is available.
- If any firm goes bust you'll be auto-moved to a price capped tariff.
- Your credit is protected by Ofgem.
- Switch now & if it does go under you may be caught in middle.
DO NOTHING!

PS business energy tariffs are a different matter and not my expertise, so this doesn't apply to them."

Re: Energy companies collapse

Bulb going under will be a nightmare for so many. They have given away millions gaining their customer base with their £50 each referrals, I can see how they are in the crap now
