Making a Complaint

City Energy Network Ltd aims to provide the highest standard of service to every customer.

If you are not completely happy with our service, we’d like to hear about it so we can do something to put it right.  All concerns we receive are taken seriously. 

We do everything we can to make sure our customers get the best products and service possible.  However, sometimes we may not get things right the first time.

When that happens, we want you to tell us what went wrong so we can put matters right.

We want to:

  • Make it easy for you to tell us what went wrong;
  • Give your complaint the attention it deserves;
  • Resolve your complaint fairly without delay; and
  • Make sure you are satisfied with how your complaint was resolved
How and where to complain

If you are not happy with any aspect of our service or products, you can tell us about your complaint in the following ways:

By telephone
Call us on 02920 499183 during our office hours and ask for our Office Manager.

How long will it take

We aim to resolve your complaint straightaway but if we can’t then we will write to you within three business days to tell you:

  • Why we have not resolved your complaint;
  • Who is dealing with your complaint; and
  • When we will contact you again.

We aim to resolve your complaint quickly but it may take longer if it is complex.

We will keep you informed on a regular basis but if you need an update please call us on 02920 499183 and ask to speak to the person handling your complaint.

If we cannot reach an agreement with you

If we can’t agree a solution with you within eight weeks, we will

  • Send a letter giving our reasons for the delay and an indication of when we expect to provide a final decision.

OR

  • Issue our final decision letter which will explain our final position.

Our aim is to resolve all complaints internally.  However, if after receiving our final decision letter, or if eight weeks have passed, you may have the right to refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS), the Green Deal Ombudsman Service (GDOS), Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) or another Alternative Dispute Resolution Provider.
