You are welcome to contact us at any time throughout the investigation process..

3, If you are not satisfied by our initial response, you can ask for your complaint to be reviewed again and supply any additional information you bzelieve may be relevant. Your complaint will be reviewed fully once more and you will be provided with our final response. This will be issued within four weeks of the date we received your review request.

4, If, after eight weeks, your complaint remains unresolved and/or you're not satisfied with our final response, we will write to you explaining the options available to you.  If, you are a microbusiness customer and you have received a deadlock letter from us, you also have the right to refer your complaint to the Energy Ombudsman. The Energy Ombudsman is approved by Ofgem
