MANY of the 250 people whose jobs were put at risk at a Bournemouth energy company have left the business.

The Daily Echo reported in March that the customer accounts of iSupply had been acquired by energy giant EDF.

iSupply – based in Richmond House on Bournemouth’s Richmond Hill – had previously been taken over by Sweden’s state-owned energy company Vattenfall. Its decision to leave the UK market came three months after it was fined £1.5million by regulators for overcharging 4,400 customers.

iSupply co-chief executive Monica Collings said: “The process to transfer iSupplyEnergy’s customers to EDF is going well, with almost all customer accounts having transitioned to their new supplier.

“The first two tranches of employees have now left the business, and we’re pleased that despite the economic climate a good proportion of these individuals have secured alternative employment.

“We are continuing to help our people with transition and wellbeing support. Plans to wind down the business are progressing well. I would encourage other local businesses to reach out to us if they are looking for talented individuals for roles over the next few months, as we have a good skills base which will become immediately available.”
