April's top stories: Hydro Tasmania's wind farm, Ofgem's record fine on SSE

In April, UK energy regulator Ofgem said it will impose a fine of £10.5m on utility giant SSE for prolonged and extensive mis-selling of gas and electricity over a two year period.

The fine is the largest ever imposed on an energy supplier by the watchdog.

Ofgem said in a press statement that SSE breached its obligations relating to telephone, in-store and doorstep sales activities between 2009 and 2011.

"In particular, SSE consistently failed, over a prolonged period of time, to conduct its sales activities in a way that would provide clear and accurate information on prices and potential savings to enable customers to make an informed decision about whether to switch suppliers," the watchdog added.
Also this month, BP said it is planning to sell 16 US wind farms and a portfolio of several other existing projects in the country in a bid to re-focus on oil and gas operations.
