If your energy supplier has ceased trading, we’ll provide an update on your case as soon as Ofgem nominate a 'Supplier of Last Resort' to take over as your new supplier. Until that time we appreciate your patience and recommend you take a meter reading.

Bluegreen Energy: Advice for consumers and update on complaints

A copy of an email/letter that we have sent to consumers who had a complaint about Zebra Power open with us at the time the company ceased trading on 1st November 2021.

Ombudsman Services | Dec 03, 2021

Dear Consumer,

We hope you’re well. We’re writing to you about the case we have on our system between yourself and Bluegreen Energy. We’re sorry that it’s taken some time to write to you.

British Gas is currently working to migrate Bluegreen Energy’s customers to their service. If you were still a Bluegreen Energy customer when they ceased trading on 1st November 2021, British Gas will be in contact soon.

As Bluegreen Energy has ceased trading, they won’t be able to carry out any resolution we may have required in response to your dispute. As we’re unable to take further action we unfortunately have to close your case. We appreciate that this will be frustrating and we’re sorry that we’re unable to continue providing support in resolving your dispute.

Bluegreen Energy and British Gas

British Gas has been appointed by energy regulator Ofgem as the new supplier to Bluegreen Energy customers, who they advise to:

  • record a meter reading and
  • not switch suppliers before the transfer is completed.

Domestic customers of Bluegreen Energy can be assured that any outstanding credit balances, including money owed will be honoured. They can also switch away from British Gas without being charged exit fees once transferred to their service. If you are transferred to British Gas’s service through this process and have any queries or concerns about the way they’ve taken over your energy supply, you should contact them in the first instance.

Further Information: Bluegreen Energy - British Gas

Although British Gas is not responsible for any complaints you had about Bluegreen Energy, those transferring to British Gas’s service do have the right to contact British Gas and discuss any unresolved issue you might have (i.e.. meter issue, etc…) or complain to them if they’re unhappy with any element of the service they offer. If any new complaint to British Gas is unresolved after eight weeks it can be escalated to us.

Once again, we apologise that we are unable to take any further action on your complaint about Bluegreen Energy.

Kind regards,
The Energy Ombudsman
