If we've got something wrong, let us know so we can put it right
We want to make sure we're giving our customers the best service possible. But sometimes things can go wrong. If this happens, we want to put things right for you as quickly as possible and learn from your feedback.
Let us know if you have an issue
A member of our frontline team will try to solve the problem straight away wherever possible.
We’ll say sorry if we’ve made a mistake, explain what went wrong, and fix any issues.
If it’s appropriate, we may offer compensation to recognise the effect our service failure has had on you.

If we can't resolve it straight away:
Some issues are a bit trickier. These might take longer to fix, or for us to reach the right resolution. If that's the case – or you're not happy with our response – we'll escalate your complaint to one of our specialists. They'll keep you fully updated on the next steps, and the progress of the issue. We'll try again to get to a resolution that works for everyone.Download Complaints Performance Report
How the complaints process works
Stage 1: Looking into your complaint
When you first contact us, it’s really important for us to find out as much as possible about the problem.
So we’ll need:
- Your details (including your account number)
- Some background information
It’s also helpful for us to know what you would like us to do to put things right.
- Do our best to find out what has gone wrong and put it right as quickly as possible. Explain what’s happened and what we’re going to do to put it right.
- Ask if you’re happy with our proposed solution.
If you are happy, we‘ll close your complaint once we’ve done everything that has been agreed.
Stage 2: Escalating your complaint
We’ll escalate your complaint to our specialist complaints team if:
- We’re not able to resolve your complaint within a day or two
- You’re not happy with what we’ve suggested
- The issue is more complex
The team are expert complaint handlers and can speak to contacts across the business to make sure we put right whatever’s gone wrong.
One of the team will contact you to make sure they understand your complaint and what you’d like us to do to put things right.
- Do their best to solve your problem as quickly as possible
- Keep you updated along the way
- Explain what needs to be done and how long this should take
Stage 3: Going to the Ombudsman
You can take your complaint to the Energy Ombudsman if:
- We’re not able to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction
- It’s already taken 8 weeks
(You don’t have to do this at this point if you’d rather we continued to work on a resolution.)
The Ombudsman is an independent and free service for you to use. They review all the actions we’ve taken to put your complaint right.
If they think we should have done more than we’ve offered, they’ll tell us what we are required to do.
This can include:
- An explanation
- An apology
- A specific action, including compensation
You don’t have to accept their decision, but we do.
|Phone||0330 440 1624 (Monday to Friday-8am to 8pm and Saturday-9am to 1pm)|
|Post||Energy Ombudsman, P.O. Box 966, Warrington, WA4 9DF|
If part or all of your complaint is that we haven’t complied with our sales and marketing obligations, we’ll compensate you appropriately and in line with regulatory standards.
You can request an internal review if you’re not happy with the way your complaint has been handled at any stage of the process.
This includes where you have agreed to a resolution but then feel that this might not be the right outcome.
