The 34-year-old chief executive officer Billy Coull today told a reporter for the Evening Times:
“With the country is at the precipice of an energy crisis, this crisis is not only going to be affecting people who are on benefits but also people who are working. Something must be done now!”
“ We appeal to the UK government to closely regulate the wholesale energy market or perhaps consider applying subsidies to energy providers. In my opinion energy providers are doing all they can to support and help customers in difficulty. I don’t think it’s fair that Energy providers should continue to make losses on The provision of vital service that every person and business across the nation requires.”
