If you need independent advice

The Citizens Advice consumer service gives free, confidential and impartial advice. You can get in touch with them for advice at anytime during the complaints process.

Call them on 03454 04 05 06, visit, citizensadvice.org.uk/energy, or fill in their online web form.

They can also help you if you want to get a better deal, need advice about your energy supply, or are struggling to pay your bills. You can download their 'Know your rights' (PDF) leaflet here.

We always aim to resolve complaints as quickly as possible

We'll make every effort to resolve your complaint within a day of receiving it. However, sometimes it can take a little longer, so if we haven't been able to sort things out within 8 weeks, or if we can't agree a way forward with you (we call this 'deadlock'), we'll write and let you know that you have the right to pass your complaint to the Ombudsman Services: Energy.

The Ombudsman is there to help sort out disputes between energy suppliers and their customers. It’s free to use their services and they’re totally independent – they don’t take sides and their decisions are based only on the information they have.

You don’t have to accept their decision, but if you do, we’ll act on what they say. That might mean saying sorry, explaining what’s gone wrong, fixing the problem or paying you compensation.

You’ll find the Ombudsman’s factsheet, which gives you full details of their services and how they can help, by visiting ombudsman-services.org/energy. You can call them on 0330 440 1624 (textphone 0330 440 1600) or email enquiries@os-energy.org.
