Our promises to you
Guaranteed Standards of Service
Making an appointment
At some point, you might need to book an appointment for one of our engineers to come to your property. Our engineers are qualified professionals with the right experience and tools to do their job. Just have a look at all the weird tools in their toolbelt, then you'll believe us.
Where possible, we promise to give you a date and time that works best for you and give you at least 24 hours’ notice if we need to rearrange it. If it’s less than that, we’ll ask your permission first. Unless you cancel it or choose a new date, we’ll stick to that appointment.
Reconnecting your supply
This is for our home energy customers. If we’ve agreed to turn your supply back on after disconnecting because you haven’t paid your bill, we’ll make sure it’s done within 24 hours.
Switched to a new supplier by mistake
If this happens, let us know and we’ll talk to the other supplier to figure out what happened. To make sure we don't switch your supply by mistake, we’ll aim to:
Agree with the other supplier who you should be supplied by within 20 working days of you letting us know.
Tell you who you should be supplied by within 20 working days, if you got in touch with us instead of the other supplier.
Switch you back to your original supplier within 21 working days if we agree that your supply shouldn’t have been switched.
Receiving your final bill
When you close your account with us, either because you’ve moved to a new property or switched to a different company, or for another reason, we’ll send you a final bill within 42 days.
Joining E.ON Next
We know that time if of the essence so once we're ready to switch your supply over to us, we’ll get everything sorted within 15 working days.
Checking your meter
This is for our home energy customers with a credit meter (if you pay for your energy after you’ve used it). If your meter is faulty or if we think there’s a problem with it, we’ll make sure to:
Check to see if the meter is faulty within five working days of you getting in touch.
If we think there’s a problem with your meter, we’ll sort it out within five working days of you getting in touch. This could mean booking an appointment to replace it or have someone investigate the issue further.
Offer to confirm everything in writing within five working days of you getting in touch.
Final credit balances
If you have any credit left in your account, we won't use it to go on a lavish Spanish holiday. If you've switched from us to a new supplier we’ll refund you any credit left on your account within 10 days of us sending you your final bill, or a corrected final bill if it’s needed.
If we break any of these promises, we’ll pay you £30 compensation within 10 working days. If we fail to do that, we’ll pay you another £30 in a further 10 working days.
We’ll pay you compensation unless we feel there’s a dispute about whether you should get it, and in accordance with the provisions of the Electricity and Gas (Standards of Performance) (Suppliers) Regulations 2015. We usually pay it straight into your energy account.
