It would appear one of those companies I mentioned is in fear of going belly up.

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!

Speaking of energy our monthly statement made me cough. Really pleased we had accrued some credit in our account

Calor gas bottle heater. Lives under the stairs. Only use it when it's cold. Morning, dinner time etc. If were in.
Had the same bottle in it for 3 years now. Yes its about empty now.
Works out cheaper than putting the entire house heating on for an hour or 2 here and there.
Just move it from kitchen to room etc as needed.
Evening time, well, 4-10.30, heatings on.

So have we sorted the Energy out Sorastro?


Just got the energy companies update... it's going up by £5 p/month, as I say I'm not overly bothered about how much, I'm more interested in how often!

You won't know that until later in the year then?
I take it it isn't a fixed price

No I never have one of those fixed tariff plans as I need to change companies without any strings attached, they have offered me such a deal but you have to put up 2 months payments up front and there doesn't seem to be a guarantee it won't alter.
