Richard Neudegg, head of regulation at Uswitch.com, said: “Together Energy, which includes Bristol Energy, has become the latest victim of the energy crisis and the first supplier to exit the market in 2022.
“This is a stark reminder that the challenges posed to both providers and consumers by high wholesale gas prices is still a relevant and ongoing concern.
“Together Energy’s 176,000 customers can be reassured that their energy supply will continue as normal and their credit balances will be protected.
“Ofgem will now appoint a new supplier, so customers should sit tight and wait for that process to conclude. We recommend that customers note their meter readings now, and again when contacted by their new supplier, to ensure their bills are accurate.”
