We won’t use high-pressure sales techniques or mislead you into doing anything until you’re 100% ready and confident to do so.
We will provide you with an annual estimate before you sign a contract if you ask for one. This will always be based on the most up-to-date information we are given and we’ll explain how it’s been calculated (including any discounts, special offers, and on what terms).

Energy suppliers contracts
Before you undertake anything with an energy supplier, we’ll make sure you understand what you’re signing and the implications of signing it. The same applies to verbally agreeing to a contract over the phone.

If there is any issue with the new contract, we’ll let you know straight away and work with you to resolve the issue.
We hope this never happens, but if you do wish to make a complaint or raise any issues, we have a simple and effective system for handling complaints.
At least once a year we will undergo a full audit to make sure we are adhering to the code.
