If we fail to do so we will pay you €30.
Our code of practice sets out the services available for vulnerable customers. If for some reason we do not meet our guarantee to provide that service, we will pay you €30.
We hope to deal with all complaints as quickly and efficiently as possible. We would expect all complaints to be dealt with within 10 working days. Sometimes this is not possible due to matters outside of our control. if this is the case, we will let you know in writing within 10 working days. If we do not deal with your complaints promptly, we will pay you €30.
Most of the time, queries can be answered over the phone immediately.

We will never pass your information or contact details to another organisation, except as required by law or by the Industry Regulator.
Budget Controllers and Pay as You Go
We will not provide you with a budget controller unless it is suitable for your needs. If we do, we will remove the budget controller and pay you €30.
If you decide to change supplier, we will make arrangements, with your cooperation, to bypass the budget controller on the changeover day so that it no longer governs your electricity usage and to have the budget controller removed at a convenient time. If we do not do so, we will pay you €30.
If, for any reason, we offer you a refund, we guarantee to issue it within 10 working days. If we don’t, we will pay you €30.
