    economyseven.co.uk 6th Feb 18 at 4:07 PM
    I'm considering switching to them.
    Does anyone know anything about economyseven.co.uk?
    Has anyone switched to them?
    They have been slow at responding to emails which is a little worrying when you're enquiring about switching to them, but in fairness they did call me when prompted.
    I did some research.
    I tried a quick search at Companies House, I believe the director of the company may be Keith Cornelius Bastian, but I can't find a company registered in (or similar to) the name of economyseven. The two nearest contenders are Bastian PLC, (most likely time wise as registered Sept. 2017) and Outfox the Market (Registered Jan 2018).
    I would be pleased for the company to respond here.

    addendum:
    I note, but make no judgement on, or assign relevance to the fact that FISCHER FUTURE HEAT UK (which bought a German heater company called Wibo) and of which Mr Bastian is also a director, was ruled against by the ASA on 2 of 3 counts in 2015
    (There are posts elsewhere on the forum about Fischer.)

    Looks like an off shoot of Outfox the market - their website redirects to outfox the market if you try to get a quote for a meter thats not an economy 7 one.

    From their website
    "‘We’ refers to Economy Seven Energy, of which our licensee is Foxglove Energy Supply Limited. As does any reference to ‘us’ or ‘our’. Our address is North Mills, Frog Island, Leicester, LE3 5DL."
    Foxglove Energy Supply Limited (no. 09689035) were registered with Ofgem for Electricity on 27 Oct 2015 and Gas 19 Nov 2015. Same director as above (and wife).
