Spark Energy swings into profit

Spark Energy, a specialist energy supplier for tenants, yesterday said it had swung into profit for the first time, as it more than doubled its customer base. The firm made profits of £337,469, while revenue rose 126 per cent to £40.7m. It supplies 100,000 rented properties throughout the UK. Spark boss Chris Gauld said substantial investment into the company now made it able to compete with its larger peers.
