At SSE Energy Solutions we’re committed to offering the very best in customer service and will do all we can to help you manage your account.

However, in recognition of the fact that things do sometimes go wrong, we’ve produced this Complaint Handling Statement to show what will happen if you have cause to complain to us

Our process

All our telephone advisers are trained to offer you the best possible customer service and will do their utmost to help you. If they need to involve their manager, they will do so to ensure the matter is resolved.

We aim to reply to written correspondence by 5pm the following working day after we receive your letter. However, more complex issues may take longer to resolve. We may have to contact other agencies or suppliers to help resolve your complaint. As part of resolving your complaint, we’ll offer you an explanation and an apology. We’ll also take remedial action and may award compensation in appropriate circumstances.

How to contact us

The easiest and quickest way to resolve your complaint is to phone us on the number listed. We may monitor your call to help improve our customer service.

Alternatively, if you’re unable to phone or would prefer to write, you can contact us by email or by post using the address listed.

If at any time you’d prefer to talk to us face-to-face about your complaint, you can visit one of our Customer Service Centres. Please contact us for details of your nearest office.
