The steps to resolving your complaint

1

Our aim is to take no longer than three weeks to deal with even the most complicated of complaints. The resolution of your complaint might include actions to put our mistake right, an apology, an explanation or compensation.

2

If you’re not satisfied that we’ve sorted it out, or you’re not happy with how we’ve dealt with things, we’ll carry out an internal review of your case. We’ll look into how we’ve handled it and the resolution offered. 

3

We will let you know what the outcome of the review is and the reasons for our decision.  If we agree to carry out other actions following the review we will let you know how long it is likely to take.

Our energy complaints figures

We started publishing detailed complaints data in March 2012, as we believed that it was important customers could see how their supplier dealt with problems.

If you need independent advice

You can refer your complaint to one of the two Alternative Dispute Resolution schemes we subscribe to. You can do any of this at any point during the complaints process.   

Visit the Citizens Advice website, call them on the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06 or fill in their energy query form
