are proving difficult to come by at the moment. We look into the reasons why this is the case!
For some reason, back in 2015 about 6 months after they started up, they asked OFGEM to revoke their electricity licence. However, they do still hold a licence under a different licence number.
Whilst trying to do some research into Places for People, it would appear they have a few irons in the fire. There’s nothing wrong with this, but it does make it difficult to detemine where to find their energy website.
The usual rules regarding new energy suppliers definitely apply as far as reviews go for Places for People Energy. Give them a wide berth until they can prove their worth.
Anyway, about the reviews. As this review post for Places for People Energy was just posted on the date in the title, it is early days to have received any customer reviews as yet. If you are, or have been a customer of this supplier, please leave your review to let others know what you think.
Very disappointed to find it difficult to research this supplier.
Update 1st December 2016
After looking at this supplier again. I have now managed to gain access to their website. (It was down when I was conducting my initial research). I may be being a little unfair to this supplier. They have in fact, the lowest amount of complaints recorded with 3rd party sources.
My concern is, that they are new to the energy market. But, they may just be worthwhile having a go at. Not all comparison sites offer a switching service for Places for People Energy. You can switch to them through Energylinx though!
We like to point you in the direction of playing it safe. You can reduce the risk of any problems by switching to one of the more established suppliers.
This is our recommended list of suppliers. There are even a couple of fairly new suppliers who have made great improvements to their service, that we are now confident in listing them here.

Switched in October 2016 - did not get confirmed industry readings sorted out until April 2017. Took hours on the phone to sort out but despite everyone apologising for the errors - only offered £15 compensation which I refused as derisory. Incredibly disorganised and one of their call handlers could not see that I was being charged by both them and my previous supplier as there was an overlap of meter readings. I will be leaving!
It's early days but the switch from EON was very efficient, the rate is good and the website portal is easy to follow and upload monthly readings to keep on track.
I have been with this supplier for over 12 months, first class service with a UK call centre, yes they are new however I cant complain as they are very easy to deal with and value for money.
I was with PFP Energy for just a few months.Their customer Service was terrible.After leaving in April 2016 I had to make a complaint in August to get a refund of my account balance that was in credit. They eventually agreed to refund this.In Feb 2017 we are contacted by a debt collection firm saying INCORRECTLY that we owed them money!Clueless!Best avoided.
I seriously hope Places for People Energy get their act together. I would normally give 2 stars to a new supplier but, because it was difficult to do my usual research into them, I feel 1 star is justified at this time. If this supplier proves their worth in the future, I will change this accordingly.
