Our Complaints Procedure

At Future Energy, we always want to do our best for you. Despite our best efforts we appreciate there may be times when things go wrong. If you’re unhappy about any of our services, we want to hear from you so that we can put things right, and to learn and improve for the future.

What happens next?

  • We’ll always try to resolve your complaint as soon as we receive it. If we can’t, we’ll acknowledge your complaint within 48 hours.
  • We’ll work hard to resolve the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible. If the matter is more complicated, this may take more time, but will keep you informed throughout.
  • Our aim is to take no longer than 8 weeks to deal with even very complex complaints, so at the end of 8 weeks we will either let you have our final response with our decision, or explain to you why we are still unable to resolve the matter. We’ll also give you details on the Energy Ombudsman.
