Bulb, the UK’s seventh largest energy provider, has announced that it will be entering special administration and special advice is available for Caithness customers.
The company said it will continue to operate with no interruption of service or supply, and national advice service Advice Direct Scotland (ADS), which runs energyadvice.scot, has advised consumers not to take any action at this stage.
With several firms going bust in recent weeks, ADS has a dedicated webpage with advice at www.energyadvice.scot/energysupplier.
Anyone in Scotland with concerns can contact energyadvice.scot for free, impartial and practical advice by visiting www.energyadvice.scot, or calling 0808 196 8660 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.
Conor Forbes, head of policy with ADS, said: “A major supplier like Bulb announcing that it will be entering special administration will inevitably cause fresh concern about the future of the UK’s energy suppliers.
“But the key advice to all customers is to do nothing at this stage. When any energy firm collapses, there is no loss of energy supply and customers do not lose any money owed to them.
