GMB, the energy union, says the collapse of two more energy companies - Pure Planet and Colorado Energy– shows once again the UK’s free-for-all energy market is not working. 

Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary, said: 

"Two more energy companies have gone bust today – and they will not be last. 

“The UK’s free-for-all energy market is not working. It’s failing consumers, workers and the planet. 

"We need more regulation, a cohesive strategy and a rethink of the price cap or we will see more and more businesses going to the wall.”
