New licence bid by controversial energy broker

Businessman Andrew Pilley, the man behind energy broker Commercial Power and energy supplier Business Energy Solutions (BES), has applied for several new supply licences to allow him to offer gas and electricity under two company names.

Financial Mail last year highlighted how BES had been taken to court by hotelier Bokmun Chan after he claimed he was signed up for an energy deal with the company that was different from and far more expensive than the one he agreed through Commercial Power.

Pilley settled out of court. At the time, we warned that some rogue brokers in the market were targeting small firms, while experts called on Ofgem to do more to prevent widespread mis selling.
