Good service except DD, good prices

Added 12/03/2009, reviewed by anonymous (Tring)

Supplier Ratings

I have always found their telephone operatives to be very polite and helpful They have an 0800 number so it costs nothing to call Their estimates have improved over the years BUT - the computer system kept trying to get more and more money up-front by revising the DD payments. This is not a problem - the reduction for paying by DD is pathetic and they will accept quarterly payments by cheque on their Standard Tarriffs. I stopped the DD and put the money into a Regular Savings account each month (earning me interest) I never accept an estimated bill but phone my readings in and pay quarterly like we all used to.

it doesnt pay to be Green

Supplier Ratings

have just had my direct debit repayments upped from £10 to £17 a month. When I phoned to ask why, they agreed it did seem a lot then put me on hold before coming back with a figure of £14 per month. When I pointed out I had actually used less gas than last year, they said I was being charged 'a little over 30% more as I was a low user' !!!!! When they put you on hold they play 'its not that easy being green'- it certainly isnt with EDF.

Poor very poor

Supplier Ratings

I am singlemother on low income got a 4 monthly bill and a letter suggesting direct debit should be raised from £20 to £80 for gas, found it really hard to accept that they do not relaise it was a cold winter and the change should be sensible and affordable. Don't want to deal with them again for sure!

Poor billing / service

Added 06/03/2009, reviewed by anonymous (Gosport)

Supplier Ratings

We are on a new estate. It took us 3 attempts to get an initial bill that was correct, and about 50% of the original amount! Then subsequent bills were almost always estimated (high), and I opted to submit readings as requested. It took 2 quarters to get that correct. Subsequent readings were then requested at other than 3 monthly intervals, so it was virtually impossible to compare 'year 'on year'. I am glad to be leaving them.

Good service but uncompetitive prices

Added 05/03/2009, reviewed by anonymous (Torquay)

Supplier Ratings

I've been happy with EDF in terms of customer service, such as when I change the monthly DD amounts, submit my own meter readings etc and their telephone staff have always been efficient and helpful (with the exception of a seeming inability to get the postcode right on one of my bills, despite many attempts to get it changed). However, I was mightily peeved to realise recently that a year ago they changed the charging structure to be 2 tiered with a much higher unit cost for the first x Kwh. As a low user this had the effect, combined with price increases, of just about doubling my bill - and they didn't tell me they were doing this. Add to this only a small recent cut in electricity tarrifs and no cut at all in gas prices means they are not competitive on cost, so I've changed supplier.
