On Wednesday 19 January 2022, the High Court granted a declaration of insolvency sought urgently by the regulator in respect of Together Energy.
The position of the company and its customer base of approximately 175,000 households has received extensive media coverage in recent days. The declaration of insolvency – which is made by reference to s123 of the Insolvency Act 1986 – enables the regulator OFGEM to take steps to revoke Together Energy’s energy supply licence and manage its energy customers going forward.
The claim was filed on Wednesday 19 January and heard on the same day by Mrs Justice Falk. Zara McGlone appeared for the successful Claimant, the Gas and Electricity Markets Authority acting through OFGEM. This is Zara’s fourth urgent claim on behalf of the Authority in recent weeks.
