Submit a Complaint


Are you without electricity, gas or water? 

If you are lodging a complaint outside of our current business hours and are without power/water, please call your supplier immediately.

Have you contacted your provider to try to resolve your complaint? 

You must contact your energy or water supplier directly first and give them the chance to resolve your complaint with you. If you submit a complaint with us without speaking to your supplier first, we will record your contact in our system and refer you back to your supplier.

Do you still wish to submit a complaint?
