How do I make a complaint?

We’re sorry to hear that you have a complaint. We want to work with you to reach a solution that you’re happy with. If you have any issues or concerns, we want to hear about them so we can work towards resolving the problem quickly. 

Not happy with your energy broker?

If you are not happy with the service provided by your energy broker (also known as a Third Party Intermediary), you should contact them in the first instance and ask for a copy of their complaints handling procedure.

If you are still not satisfied when they have completed their internal complaints procedure, you may refer your complaint to the Energy Ombudsman.
