Our complaints process

Step 1 - We want to sort things out for you quickly

If we’ve got something wrong then we want to fix it. Our aim is to reach a mutually acceptable solution with you quickly. Here’s our complaints process.

Our UK-based webchat team are ready to help you, so please log in to get in touch. If we can't sort out your complaint right away, we'll give you a unique reference number which you can use when talking to other members of the team.

Alternatively you can contact us by email at please allow a minimum of 5 days for us to respond.

No matter how you get in touch with us, to resolve your complaint quickly we ask that you provide:

  • Your account number (this should start with BGL)
  • Full name
  • Business name
  • Postcode of supply
  • Details of complaint

If you don’t give us this information then we may not be able to locate your account and help you.

When you get in touch to make a complaint we’ll investigate fully and let you know what needs to happen next – whether that’s us saying sorry, making a goodwill gesture or giving compensation. Some account issues can take time to fix. So until we’ve sorted your problem, we recommend you keep making regular payments to cover your energy usage.

Step 2 - If you're not happy with how we're dealing with your complaint

All of our UK-based webchat team go through extensive training. This means that if something has gone wrong, from metering to billing, they have the experience to put it right. They’re also empowered to make management level decisions to correct issues for you.

If you’re not happy with how we’re dealing with your complaint, ask our webchat team to put in touch with a manager. We’ll let you know we’ve received your complaint within 24 hours and get back to you within 10 working days.

Step 3 - If we can't agree a way forward with you

If you're a micro business and we haven't been able to sort things out within 8 weeks, or we can't agree a way forward with you (we call this 'deadlock'), we'll write and let you know you have the right to refer your complaint to the Ombudsman Services: Energy.

If you're not a micro business, you may wish to seek independent legal advice.

You don't have to accept their decision, but if you do, we'll act on what they say - whether that's us saying sorry, explaining what's gone wrong, fixing the problem or even paying you compensation.
