The fixed price I was offered from Scottish power was so much better than anything offered in the market place, hence the quick switch before they stopped the offer.
Thank you for replying.
did you switch to a fix or a variable with SP?
My point being that all of the fixes when the crisis started, were punitive, and you may not have realised that switching to the variable (which was the default if you did nothing) was the best option, even if it was with PP) because that was capped (until April)
Because the renewal rates offered were not as good as switching. My final bill should have been sent to Scottish Power but because of Pure Planet going bust and them transferring to Shell, it seems to have confused things. I guess I’ll contact Shell. Thanks @gwndy
@Rosskent103637292 and @Jp13
Curious to know why either (or both) of you switched to Sottish Power?
@Rosskent103637292 Shell Energy will refund you as and when your details are transferred over from Pure Planet to Shell Energy.Your credit with Pure Planet is the responsibility of Pure Planet and the appointed Supplier of Last Resort (in this case Shell Energy), any supplier you move to outside of the Supplier of Last Resort process has no access to your Pure Planet account information, or balance.
I received my final bill a month ago, and I’m still due the credit. The email mentions moving to Shell Power, but just before you went bust I actually moved to Scottish Power. I’ve had 2 bills from Scottish Power and no mention of any credit.
Will they be updated with this credit or do I need to contact somebody?
Thanks for posting! Some great advice from @woz and @Lapa here - your credit is protected and will be refunded, it’ll just take longer than usual due to the current circumstances.
This may be useful too:
I hope this helps!
You will get your credit back but don’t expect it until the new year. They are saying payments won’t be rolled over to Shell until January.
I’m not now with shell I’m with Scottish power I switched as soon as I got the email..! I’m pretty sure they won’t be giving me my credit back
The community don’t have access to your account and unfortunately your post is very lacking in detail, such as; when did you move and what were the circumstances?
Have you read any of the faq’s or relevant posts of which there are hundreds, and most of which have the same answer? Unless your circumstances are very different from the majority of similar cases?
The usual answer is that PP’s business has moved to Shell and they will process any outstanding refund, but that’s an intuitive guess based on no real information.
I moved supplier but in credit how do I get it back
Thanks for posting! Some fab advice here from @Lapa and @woz - these may be worth a read for you too:
okay woz i guess ill just wait another month and keep an eye on my bank account for the refunded credit (fingers crossed)
Once you’ve received the final bill it usually takes up to 10 days to 2 weeks for the credit to reach your bank, but if it hasn’t been actioned then it could easily be a couple of months realistically to get it from the new supplier.
I have no idea sorry. The new supplier hasn’t been announced yet so I’m guessing a couple of weeks. Once they’ve been named if you contact them they may be able to give you a rough timeline.
Hi Lapa thanks for that i was worried that because pure planet has ceased trading they wouldnt have the money to refund there customers who had switched before the crash happened?
Do you no how long it roughly takes for the money to go into my account please?
I have been with my new supplier for over a month now.
Thanks in advance
Sorry I linked you to the wrong FAQ
Closed account credit
theres so many posts and linking people to faqs I messed up. Apologies
Thanks for all your replies guys
My problem is that i switched suppliers before the crash so i chose to switch as my deal was coming to an end.
The new supplier will deal with your refund. It will prob take them a bit to get everything in order following the take over but they will deal with it :)
This was the email i got from pure planet
Your switch away is now complete for your electricity supply

If it hasn’t been sent to your bank (you’ll know if it has because it will appear in your account) then it it will be processed by the appointed supplier. You won’t lose it. (but I might...)
This FAQ posted by the team will answer your question :)
the new supplier will sort it
