Leep Utilities Granted Independent Gas Transporter Licence from Ofgem
Last mile multi-utility network owner and operator Leep Utilities have been granted an Independent Gas Transporter (IGT) licence from Ofgem.
Leep’s investment in an IGT licence sees the company able to provide developers and contractors with a full multi-utility adoption offering across all utilities on new developments.
Speaking on the move into the gas market, Louise Manfredi, Managing Director of Leep Utilities, said: “We are delighted to now be able to provide a full multi-utility adoption service to complement our existing market offering of straightforward electricity, water, heating and cooling connections.
Since announcing we were in the process of obtaining an IGT licence, it’s become clear that there is an appetite from developers and contractors for us to offer the same straightforward service for the adoption of gas networks that we currently offer across other utility networks.”
The granting of the licence comes during a period of substantial growth for the business, having recently secured the rights to own and operate several high-profile electricity networks in London and the North West, and completed the acquisition of SSE’s water and wastewater networks. The acquisition makes Leep Utilities the largest UK operator in the New Appointments and Variations (NAV) Market and saw the business adopt 28 sites across Southern England and Wales.
