"Terrible customer service. No one ever returns calls even though my complaint has been flagged as critical! Fed up of ringing and emailing. Problems have been going on for over a month. Being billed for someone else's meters and being sent chasing text messages and letters. Have changed suppliers on 1st Oct and still I am being billed! I would not recommend this company to anyone."

"Horrible company. Just moved into a new property 8 months ago and just calculated my average gas and elec use as £260 per month which is ridiculous for a one bed flat. Customer service is so bad my only advice would be to avoid as it will just confuse even more. Switch to an honest supplier because this one will over charge like no other."

"Terrible customer service, was left unable to top up my account for over a week. Left within a month of joining. Phone operators seem to have absolutely no idea, was given completely different information every time I spoke to someone. Shockingly bad."

"Awful service , well no service, no account number sent, no welcome pack as promised, money straight out of bank account ( of course ), Customer Service do not answer phone for at least 20 minutes a call and then can go dead. Staff are arrogant. Change renewable or not."

"Have just switched to Bulb and so far this has been very simple. Only took a few minutes to make the switch and it will save me £25 per month on my dual fuel bills (compared to the previous provider). Communication has been excellent so far and the fact that all the energy is renewable is a great bonus.use my link and get free 2 min quote and 75 welcome bonus"

"Completely scammed by them. I moved into a property in late November and due to it being a new build they had arranged coverage with the property developers. I phoned them shortly after moving in asking for details of the tariff and a bill. They said they would establish the account and send out the details. Three months later I received an unaddressed letter stating I owed them GBP 250 for three months!! I live in a studio and used the heating minimally. They refused to give me a breakdown of the usage or even explain why they didn't send the details of my sky high tariff they had placed me on sooner. Many people in my building have been scammed like this, they seem to have delayed these bills because they know they will make a lump sum before people switch to more honest, professional and reasonable supplier. They have found a legal scam... avoid like the plague and if you inherit them in any way... switch without even checking."

"I joined Ecotricity after they were number one on Which? but to be honest how they got there is a mystery to me. Someone was meant to be fitting an Economy 7 meter and after no one turned up I rang to chase it up. I was told on 4 separate occasions that I would receive a call back from someone to reschedule my appointment only they never did. Eventually I took it to the complaints team and it was rescheduled for 4 weeks away after some flimsy apology so we were forced to wait even longer. On another separate occasion we received a £500 bill for about 6 months as it had taken them ages to bill us. Not being able to afford this as a lump sum I set up a payment plan only for them to take the whole payment out anyway causing me to be in my overdraft over a bank holiday period where it could not be rectified as the banks were closed and Ecotricity told me the money could not be refunded until the next working day. This meant I had no money for my weekly food shop, my card being declined in a supermarket and me having to beg family for money just so I could stock my cupboards with enough food until I could get it sorted. The way Ecotricity handled this was shocking! They did nothing other than offer apologies, no good will gesture or anything for the inconvenience. They just didn't care. Eventually I went to Dale Vince the CEO and I think it was a lady directly below him who contacted us and offered £50 off our bill. It wasn't much but at least it was something. When I ring their customer service number, they are very professional and friendly, they just aren't very good at customer care. It's all well and good being nice and saying the right things but what good is that when they do nothing when something goes wrong. I have noticed Eco's rating has slipped down in Which - rightfully so. I am now leaving them and joining bulb! On a final note, we were advised we would be getting a smart meter fitted very soon and they would be in touch. That was 6 months ago. Since then, nothing..."

"The most appalling customer from any company that I have ever dealt with. The person that I spoke to had no idea of current electricity supply regulations and absolutely no knowledge of customer relations. What was once a good company is now declining fast because of poor staff selection and lack of training."

"Dreadful response time to answer the phone. Very poor online customer section with little account information. Recent request for help moving a meter was disorganised and misinformed. Their green credentials are good. On all other fronts, they are awful"
