Ofgem is today launching an investigation into whether Western Power Distribution (WPD) is in compliance with rules around updating and providing information to vulnerable customers on its Priority Services Register.
Western Power Distribution is the electricity distribution network operator for the Midlands, South Wales and the South West.
The opening of this investigation does not imply that we have made any findings about non-compliance.
