Receivers have warned creditors that once Indepen-dent's bankers are paid off there will be no funds left. Independent was one of the UK's most aggressive virtual utilities, but it was brought down by disastrous IT problems that left it with a billing backlog totalling £119m.
Independent Energy had a peak stock market valuation of £1.5bn, but was sold to Innogy for £9m in September.
