If we ever make a mistake or do something wrong, please let us know about it straight away. We will aim to fix it the first
time we hear from you.
To tell us what has gone wrong, you can call us on 0800 408 6716, fill in the web form,
or write us a letter. However you want to get in touch, we want to hear from you.
Once we know what’s happened, we’ll do everything we can to put it right within five working days.
If we can’t fix it straight away, our Complaints team will call you to talk to you in more detail about what is going on, and

The Energy Ombudsman is an independent organisation which you can ask to pick things up for you, for free, once you’ve had our final response (or if it’s eight weeks since you complained and we still haven’t fixed things). If they decide that we should do something for you, we legally have to do it (but if they think there is something you should do, you don’t have to
go with their decision).
We will aim to sort things out as fast as we can - within five working day or, if it’s something a bit more complicated, within
1) As part of that, we will do some or all of these:
2) Give you an explanation
3) Do everything we can to put things right
4) Give you compensation (if it’s appropriate)
We want you to be happy with what we’ve done. If you are not, or we don’t fix things within eight weeks, you can get in
touch with the Energy Ombudsman who will take it from there.
