We'll do what we can to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible. We'll do this by;

  • Understanding the situation and what caused the problem
  • Explaining what we'll do to fix it and whether we need further information from you
  • Provide you with an idea of how long it will take 
  • Ask you what you want to resolve your complaint


Once you've made a complaint we'll keep you updated on the progress and promise that we'll work as efficiently as we can to close the matter for you, once we know you're happy with the outcome. This usually happens within 2 working days.

We're confident we're the right people to help you with your complaint. We know that sometimes you may want to seek help from a third party. This could be due to the fact that you've received a deadlock letter from us.
 

Ombudsman Services: Energy

We always try to come to reach an outcome that you're happy with, but sometimes that's not possible. In these cases, you'll be sent a 'deadlock' letter. If you've received one of these letters of it's been over 8 weeks since your complaint was logged with our team, you can contact the Ombudsmen Services for Energy.

It is a free and totally independent service. Decisions made are based on the facts available and may take up to 12 weeks as they will need to look at your case from the beginning to decide on a final outcome. If the Ombudsman finds that EDF have not acted correctly, then they will tell us what we need to do in order to put things right. This could be an explanation and/or apology. It could include what actions we need to take, which could include compensation. The decision made is binding on us but not on you.
