At this stage, if we’re unable to reach a solution you are happy with, we may send you a letter advising of our final position. You can then either accept this or choose to pursue the matter further through other avenues. We will keep your complaint open for 28 days following our final position after which we will formally close your complaint.
Energy Services (Business Power) Ltd are a member of the Ombudsman Services Energy Broker ADR Scheme and if you are a Micro Business consumer then you are entitled to take your complaint to the Ombudsman. The Ombudsman is a free and independent organisation that works together with suppliers, consultants and micro business consumers to reach a satisfactory resolution to their complaints. If you’re not happy with the way we are dealing with your complaint or are not happy with our final resolution, the Ombudsman may be able to help with your issue and make an impartial decision on the action required. You can contact the Ombudsman when:
We send you a letter confirming our final position. You must contact them within six months of receiving this letter if you’re still unhappy with the way we have dealt with your complaint.
We have not sent you a final position letter, but it has been at least eight weeks since your initial complaint has passed. You must contact them within nine months of making your initial complaint to us.
If you accept the Energy Ombudsman’s decision we must then honour that decision. However, you are not bound to accept the Energy Ombudsman’s decision and instead may choose to take other action such as litigation.
To qualify for the Ombudsman’s advice, you must qualify as a microbusiness meaning your business satisfies one of the following requirements:
An annual gas consumption of no more than 293,000kwh, or a comparable electricity consumption of no more than 100,000kwh
Fewer than 10 employees (or their full-time equivalent) and, an annual turnover or annual balance sheet no greater than €2 million
