Director sentenced after charging clients for incomplete work

The director of Future Homes Energy and Nationwide Home Renewables has been sentenced for charging his clients up to £17,000 to install energy efficient heating systems and taking deposits of around £3,500 for work that was never completed.

Sacha Dixey, of 2 Mayfield Close, Bognor Regis, was sentenced to six years in prison after pleading pleaded guilty to 31 counts under the Fraud Act, Companies Act, and the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations.

Mr Dixey was formerly unsuccessful in his bid to achieve NAPIT membership.  NAPIT therefore provided their support when Mr Dixey was under investigation by West Sussex County Council Trading Standards for his fraudulent business activities.
