Solarplicity ordered to pay Feed-in Tariff generators 


Small energy supplier Solarplicity has been told by Ofgem it must pay money owed to Feed-in Tariff generators by 16 May.

The company was banned from taking on new customers in February following concerns over customer service and enabling switching. Ofgem then said it had three months to “get its house in order”.

The company’s generation arm ceased trading last year after racking up significant debt and its accounts for the year to 31 March are outstanding, according to Companies House.

“Ofgem understands that Solarplicity failed to pay a number of FIT generators despite receiving FIT levelisation payments which should allow them to do so,” stated the regulator.

FIT generators are likely to suffer from financial harm as a result of this and the non-payments could undermine the integrity of the FIT scheme itself.”
