If your complaint is unresolved after 8 weeks
If you have followed steps 1 and 2 above, and your complaint is still unresolved at 8 weeks, or if we have issued you with a deadlock letter, you have the right to refer your complaint to Ombudsman Services: Energy.

It’s free to use their services and they are totally independent – they do not take sides and make their decision based only on the information available. If you agree with their decision, we have to act on what they say. This may mean we have to apologise, explain what has gone wrong, correct the problem or give you a financial award. You do not have to accept their decision.
You can contact the Ombudsman by:
