Spark energy ceased trading.


An energy supply company with almost 300,000 customers has ceased trading.

Spark Energy Supply is part of a gas and electricity firm which employs more than 300 staff at its Selkirk headquarters.

The move comes after the company was handed a £14m bill by the energy regulator Ofgem for non-payment of its renewable power obligation.

Another smaller supplier, Extra Energy, collapsed earlier this week for the same reason.

Rival firms Extra Energy, Future Energy, National Gas and Power, Iresa Energy, Gen4U and Usio Energy have all gone bust in 2018.
