This Selkirk-based company buys energy and supplies it to more than 200,000 customers in rented accommodation and social housing. The company says clear pricing and good customer service helped last year’s profits rise to £5.8m. In August last year, chief executive Chris Gauld, 39, led a buyout backed by private equity firm Limerston Capital, which acquired a majority stake for an undisclosed sum.
