Statement: Angelic Energy

A statement from Islington Council following news of the sale of the Robin Hood Energy business to British Gas.

Robin Hood Energy, the supply licence partner for Angelic Energy customers, cannot continue to operate in the absence of further financial support from its owner. Therefore, it has sold its customer contracts to a new supplier. Customers’ energy supplies will be unaffected by the sale.

A spokesperson for Islington Council, which owns the Angelic Energy brand, said: “We are disappointed that Nottingham City Council were not in a position to continue financially supporting Robin Hood Energy, which has led to its business being purchased  by British Gas.

“We are absolutely committed to continuing to help our residents secure affordable and greener tariffs on the energy market, and remain focused on securing the best possible value for Angelic Energy’s customers.

“We are carefully reviewing our options and are in discussions with Nottingham City Council and Robin Hood Energy.”

Angelic Energy customers can find more information on the Angelic Energy website.
