Energy firm slumps
Npower confirms 2,400 job losses across UK
The company was the most complained about among the big six energy companies. It was fined £26million for poor complaints handling and lost 351,000 customers.
It slumped to a €137m (£106m) loss last year, against a €227m profit in 2014.
German parent company RWE blamed government energy efficiency schemes for the “weakening our market share”.
Npower said the job losses would be among directly employed staff and contractors.
