HAVE YOUR SAY: Should Boris Johnson return to Britain to help aid the gas price crisis?
HAVE YOUR SAY: Should Boris Johnson be focusing on the gas crisis rather than climate change on the international stage?
Millions of customers have been affected in recent days as more energy firms collapse under soaring gas prices.
Avro Energy and Green are two of the latest firms to cease trading, while customers face being switched to a new, potentially more expensive, provider.
The news comes as Shell Energy is to take on 255,000 former customers from Green, one of the latest in a raft of small energy supplier to fail over the past month.
Energy watchdog Ofgem has had to find providers for more than two million energy customers over the past month after soaring natural gas prices drove the collapse of seven small suppliers.
Green, which was registered as Green Supplier Limited, collapsed just days after the firm’s chief exectutive, Peter McGirr, warned that the outlook was “looking bleak”.
Ofgem said on Monday that former and current customers of Green will have any outstanding credit on their balance honoured under the agreement, with no interruption supply predicted during the handover.
The regulator added that Green customers will be contacted over the coming days about the change and are being advised to wait until the transfer is completed before deciding if they wish to change suppliers.
Food companies have also been paying more for CO2, with higher food bills expected for customers.
One meat supplier said its costs had gone up by £1million a month, and it would be a bad thing for customers.
Are you concerned about rising energy bills and food prices? Can you afford to pay more? Is the Government doing enough to tackle the problem?
