Annual complaints report

If things go wrong for you, we want to put them right. And that’s why we now have a straightforward complaints procedure that’s easy to follow.

Between 1 October 2016 and 30 September 2017, we received 168,071 expressions of dissatisfaction from residential customers which could not be resolved on the same day or the next working day after receipt. This represents 2% of all customer contacts received during this period. Most of our customer complaints were due to billing, payments, metering , debt and energy transfer. We're working hard to improve areas of our business which can cause customer dissatisfaction. You can see what actions we're taking by looking at our 'top 5 causes of customer complaints'
