If there are any posters or lurkers from many years ago still on this forum they may be interested in knowing that Andy Pilley, a director of BES Utilities has been jailed for 13 years.

Kudos to North West Regional Trading Standards for seeing this through to the end. (But I can't help feeling there is some failure either with Ofgem's powers or its operations, given how long the fraud operated.)

I have pasted below one old thread on the topic. (It may be difficult to understand much of the thread since many replies were removed following legal threats by BES and its lawyers.)
