Sorry if we got something wrong.

Day 10: Take things further

If we haven't fixed things within 10 days you can get in touch with our dedicated Complaints Team. Their specialist skills can resolve even the trickiest of problems.

Email ComplaintResolution@edfenergy.com or call 0333 200 5101(2) Mon-Fri 8am to 5pm

Day 20: Contact our CEO

Our CEO Simone Rossi cares about your issue, and if it’s been more than 20 days you can email him directly on SRossi@edfenergy.com.  He and his senior team will do everything they can to put things right.

Day 40: Work with our Specialist Complaints Team

It's very rare that we can't find a solution within 40 days. If this does happen, we'll send you a letter giving you the phone number of our Specialist Complaint Team who’ll help you with your complaint.

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 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 a deadlock letter it has been over 8 weeks since your complaint was logged with our team.

You can then contact the Ombudsman Services for Energy, which is a free and totally independent service. Decisions made by the Ombudsman are based on the facts available and may take up to 12 weeks. This is because they will need to look at your case from the beginning to decide on a final outcome.

If the Ombudsman finds that EDF has 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.
