Take a look at the latest performance from our customer services teams

How we did in August

Following our recent price reduction announcement we have supported more customers than expected in conversations in supporting them with their tariff options. This unfortunately has led to it taking longer for us to answer customers. We are currently putting plans in place to help address this in the coming weeks.

On the phone

Our call centres experience their busiest periods between 9am and 1pm and 4pm and 7pm. If you can, we’d encourage you to call outside of these hours to ensure your call is answered as quickly as possible. You may also find the answer to your question on our website. You can register to manage your accounts online; submit meter readings, pay your bills, book an engineer and much more.
