Step One: Let us know about the problem


You can do this verbally either over the phone on 0131 285 5510 or pop into our office if it’s easier!  We’re open from 9.10am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

If you prefer you can email us at:

Or, send a letter to:

The People’s Energy Company
Stuart House, Eskmills Park, Station Road

We’ll respond to you as soon as we can and will try to resolve every complaint the first time you contact us.  If it’s a straightforward problem we aim to sort this out within 5 working days, for things that are a bit more complicated it may up to 8 weeks for this to be resolve.

Our resolution may include some of the following:

  • An apology
  • An explanation as to what went wrong
  • Actions to resolve the problem and an explanation about what we have done to fix the problem
  • A gesture of goodwill or compensation if this is appropriate

Step Two: If you are unsatisfied about the resolution of your complaint


We’ll do everything we can to resolve any issues you have, however, if you are unhappy with the resolution offered you have the right to escalate your complaint to a Team Leader.

The Team Leader will review the complaint to make sure we’re doing everything we can and will try to resolve this for you.

As a final escalation if you are still not happy with resolution from the Team Leader you can request a further review by a senior manager. They will assess the complaint and either come back to you with an alternative resolution or alternatively refer you to the Energy Ombudsman service.

The Ombudsman will review the facts of the complaints and propose a resolution. If you accept the resolution, we are bound by the decisions they make.  You, the customer, are not. You can call them on 0330 440 1624 (9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday), email them at or visit
