If you're energy supplier has gone bust, it is important to know that your energy supply will NOT be interrupted. Ofgem will choose a supplier for all affected customers as an interim solution. For more information, check out our guide on what to do if your energy supplier has gone bust.
It is at this point that you should compare energy prices and see if a new energy supplier is a better option for you.
Whilst choosing a new supplier may not come down to price in this current climate, you may prefer to decide based on the quality of customer service offered. See our guide on the best energy suppliers in 2021.
In total 37 energy suppliers have gone bust. The table below shows the number of customers that have been displaced each year with 2021 far outpacing the previous years.
