Important Announcement: OPUS Energy Exiting Gas Market

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

Introduction: In an unexpected turn of events, OPUS Energy are exiting the Gas Market and they have announced its decision to withdraw starting from 01/02/2023. This decision will have implications for both existing and potential customers who were considering OPUS Energy as their gas supplier.

In this blog post, we not only provide guidance on finding an alternative but also offer our services to help you secure competitive quotes from over 20 trusted suppliers.

What does this mean for existing customers? If you are currently an OPUS Energy customer with a locked-in contract, rest assured that your contract will be honored until its end date. OPUS Energy will not terminate any live contracts prematurely, providing certainty for customers who depend on their gas services. However, bear in mind that once your contract expires, you will no longer have the option to renew with OPUS Energy for gas supply.
