TOGETHER Energy, the Clydebank-based utility supplier, is aiming to recruit 20 additional staff by the end of the year, taking to 60 the number of employees since it secured its first customers in October 2016.

Together Energy now supplies nearly 6,000 households across the UK, generating revenue of £5.4 million. The company is planning to more than double its customer base in the next few months, to around 15,000, just 12 months after it began operating.

It is also aiming to secure 100,000 customers in the next three years, with forecasted revenues of £80m.
