NPower Chief executive Paul Massara admitted to MPs earlier this month that NPower had paid no corporation tax since 2008, but he insisted that new capital investments had simply wiped out its profits.
NPower paid just £140 million into the government’s fuel poverty fund while dodging up to £100m in tax, the Morning Star reports.
If you’re thinking of switching Co-op energy is owned by it’s members. It also works to be a lower carbon company that the other suppliers as it sources some energy from community projects, new suppliers etc. In 2011-2012 100% of their energy came from renewables.
Alternatively Ebico is a not-for-profit supplier. They are a little cheaper than the Co-op but they still source their energy from SSE.
