Making a Complaint

If you are unhappy with our service, this page provides details on how you can log a complaint with us and details the steps we take to resolve this

If you have a complaint, we want to help put things right. Find information about our complaints process for domestic and small business customers and boiler care customers below.

ScottishPower domestic and small business complaints

We aim to give our customers the best possible service. But if something''s gone wrong, we’ll always investigate and do everything we can to put things right. We’ve tried to make our complaints process as simple as possible by following the 3-stage approach below.

Stage one: Contact us

The fastest way to get in touch about your issue is to chat to us online.  You can now get in touch with us seven days a week.  Chat to us 7 days per week 7am – 11pm. If we’re helping with other queries and can’t chat immediately, you’ll see the magnifying glass icon. We’ll soon be back online to help, please stay online. Why not ask our bot a question in the meantime? It’s a handy way to find help, from answers to articles to how-to videos.

Rather start your chat at a time that suits you?

To chat to us at a time that suits you, you can download our energy app via the iOS App or Android Google Play Store where you’ll have access to speak to us via In-App Chat. If you switch on your notifications, you will see as soon as we have replied.

If you’re a domestic customer and would rather speak to us, you can call us on 0345 270 0700. Our lines are open Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm.

The quickest method to speak to us is via chat however for all complaints you can also contact us by:

E-mail: contactus@scottishpower.com

If you’re a small business, you can contact us on 0345 058 0002. Lines are open Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm.

Stage two: We’ll work to resolve your issue

We aim to resolve issues as quickly as possible. If we can’t resolve your issue straight away, a dedicated complaint handler will be assigned to your complaint to review the issue and help to resolve it. They’ll keep you informed until we can fully resolve your complaint. We''ll endeavour to contact you as quickly as possible to resolve your complaint. In most cases this will be via telephone within 5 working days, unless you’ve asked us to get in touch another way.

Stage three: Escalate your complaint

At this stage you’ll have already told us about your issue and have an existing complaint with us. If you’re at this stage and feel your complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction, you can escalate your issue to our Director Support Team by completing this form. We’ll review your complaint and aim to respond within 3-5 days.
