It is alleged......
It would appear that the company mentioned is not the only Council run energy company, and most seem to be heading for the same abyss.
The Councils seem to be setting up "local" energy companies under the Council banner, but in reality all they are doing is drumming up trade for an established energy company {who remains in the background doing all the work} and basically being given a "bonus" for every new customer they sign up {yes a bit like chuggers}.
Over recent months at least 10 small energy companies have turned turtle, and there's every chance more will follow!

Interesting!

Hi Bumblebee if you a face book user there is a group on there which is for people like yourself who are trying to contact people from their past.
I can't remember the name of the group but I'm sure someone will know on here.
Good luck  :)

Hi, I'm trying to find any information on a local artist, James Arundel Massey who lived on Hawksley Avenue in Chesterfield and probably died mid 1980s.  Was he the son of the artist by the same name who lived 1875-1960.  Does anybody have any recollections of him?  I believe he lived in Buxton at the end of his life.

She said she wanted me to be more romantic – so I massaged her in essential oils.

Castrol, Magnatec and WD-40.

What's the basis of the TV adverts promoting smart meters that say you will save money? Utter tosh!

The only thing that smart meters do is to provide homeowners with an in-home display that shows how much energy you're using and how much its costing at any given time. We used to have something similar with the old electricity meters, remember how fast the wheel used to spin when you switched the immersion heater on?!

Now forgive me if I'm being thick, but, surely if you've got an ounce of common sense you know what appliances are going to cost you money (eg led light bulb vs electric fire), and you use them accordingly - no need for a digital read out to tell you (and by the way, that is also using electricity all the time it's powered up!).

I had smart meters a couple of years ago purely for my own convenience when I was undergoing prostate cancer treatment, the in home display was quickly consigned to the pantry and wasn't used. Unfortunately I lost the smart functionality when I changed supplier (that wasn't very well thought out by the government was it?) and they keep promising that all these type of meters will be upgraded to once again make them 'smart', although the timescale for this keeps slipping and is currently the end of 2020.

 Is that similar to (and you'll have to be of a certain age to remember this) the buses that, according to their destination blinds, were going to Duplicate?!
