“On Going Uphill Battle”

Written on: 05/06/2013 by PJ73 (1 review written)

I transferred over to EDF in March 2011 as I felt EON's prices were just too high and they were refusing to remove the prepayment meters in my flat. EDF took both gas and electric accounts over and fitted new meters and I have paid a monthly direct debit to cover both fuels ever since. Long story short, in February of this year I realised there was an issue as I continued to have EON insisting the gas meter/account was theirs. On further investigation by EON (who have been fantastic) it… Read Full Review

Unfortunately, for you, this is NOT unbelievable. Until you have had dealings or experience of EDF you do not realise the stress they can cause to any individual. They are non-transparent in their actions/readings and tend to 'pluck' figures from the air with no explanation at all. Anyone who gives Bank Account details to this company are opening themselves up to a 'help yourself' process for this supplier. If you care to read back on various other reviews you will realise that you are dealing with a very dysfunctional business (not organisation cause they certainly are not that). Poor Communication internally, no customer service and frankly I believe they do not give a hoot because they are big enough and profitable enough to not give a hoot. Any Company that spends and squanders amounts on advertising to bring in additional custom while not wanting to retain existing business, will eventually crack and disappear. Reputation is built on the best form of publicity being 'word of mouth'...

“AVOID!”

Written on: 21/05/2013

In January we decided to switch energy companies from British Gas to EDF as BG had been undercharging us & sent us a bill for £600 just before Christmas! We have been with EDF for 5 months & have had nothing but problems. Our first bill was £74 & ever since it has been £120. We hardly use our heating as we live in a bungalow, so it doesn't take much to heat it. We were not warned of the increase in price. EDF just tried to take the £120 from our bank, which we did not have enough funds… Read Full Review

How unfortunate for you that you have been treated in this way, by these Energy Bullies because, effectively that is what they are. I think like many of us you will have to use this as a learning curve. A pay metre might be better for you even though it may be worth just shopping around for a capped rate from an alternative supplier. (capped meaning you pay a fixed rate with them for so many years that does not fluctuate i.e' £50 each month) Fuel is not going down in price but did you know that if your Energy is taking up at least a quarter of your income you could qualify for FREE Wall cavity insulation, loft insulation and various other bits from Energy suppliers to make your home warmer. Go onto any Energy Supplier website and see if you fit the criteria. Prepare for winter in advance. Good Luck:)

“Avoid at all costs. ”

Written on: 12/05/2013 by Inkitpierceitburnit (14 reviews written)

Dreadful company. From the very beginning, when the rude, condescending crone on the other end of the telephone reponded to my request to have the key meter removed and replaced with a standard credit model with "well, you DO realise that you have to undergo a Credit Search? Which you may not pass" to the demand for £200 when I informed them that I was moving out. I was puzzled. I had dutifully provided a meter reading EVERY month for the 9 years that I lived there. Apparently, EDF saw fit to… Read Full Review

Totally agree....The Blue Promise with EDF, alone, is an indicator to the customer what EDF are about. Once you start dealing with their incompetence the air will be 'blue' the language 'blue' and that is how they will leave you feeling 'blue'.

“Trying to bill me for over 4k”

Written on: 10/05/2013

EDF has been a horrible company, they always said they were billing me the correct amount since signing up with them and three years later, after never receiving an adjusted bill or anything I have been told that my bill is over 4k. They had told me that they read my meter once a year ago and that my account was up to date, when I signed up they said that my account would be read and adjusted every quarter which was never done. I never received a bill and they have never made an actual reading… Read Full Review

Unfortunately, like you, I learned the hard way with this Company. What they tend to put in writing is totally different to what they tell you verbally. Once you get into the 'maze' of the call centres dotted all around the uk and India this is beyond belief, as communication does not appear to be apparent, using the cloak of 'data protection' which is total poppycock. No one, in-house, can make a professional decision and I believe by now, that their collection Agency would also be in some sort of legal battle with them. As long as you have everything in writing vs what they have delivered you should be covered if you should need to go through the Energy Onbudsman... Word of warning though if they still have your Bank details cancel any DD..

“VILE COMPANY AVOID!!!!”

Written on: 29/04/2013 by doodah (6 reviews written)

I went with this company after having someone visit me on my doorstep saying how they can cut my electricity bills for me, this was Dec 2008. In April 2009 i was finally signed over to this awful company. I was on economy 7 due to having storage heaters so had 2 readings day and night. I had meter readers regularly coming to my home to read the meter and every month i would pay what i owed by Direct Debit. In Novemeber of 2010 and me being 8 mths pregnant i got a letter form EDF asking for me… Read Full Review

Nothing surprises me about this lot as they have absolutely no honest, accurate robust system or Training in place, it is a case of "The computer say's no". They will deny ever saying something or offering something and only admit it if the hard factual evidence is pushed under their noses and even then they will still ignore it. EDF have expressed nothing but a lack of care for the everyday customer. Just a quick question when you moved to your new Energy Company did you feel like a massive weight was lifted from your shoulders...Isn't it sad that Suppliers who we choose to use can make life so miserable for their Customers? Something is most definitely amiss as it is the likes of us that pay their wages? (David and Goliath) .

I feel so much better now i have moved from this awful company i would of moved a long time ago if it wasn't for them putting me in debt in the first place then trying to steal money form my bank account! Makes you wonder how many more people they have done it too especially those that don't have online banking or check their accounts on a regular basis!! They are now saying i owe them just over £217 as they haven't billed me since Oct 2012. They want the money in 10 days. I have said it has taken them 3 mths to sort out my final bill and that is just estimated too so i will pay £5 a week nothing more! After the meter readers came to my house to read the meter i would actually call EDF to tell my readings as the meter readers were adament i was using more electric at night than in the day! How i don't know????

I'm having the same problem with edf, I've only got a bill because i asked for one. They are saying i owe £2617.45.For a year. £1000 of that is from them doing this before. I pay £214.00 a month for my electric and they said when i rang them about this bill that my ongoing usage is on £135.00 a month. So really impossible to owe this amount. They have said that i use most of my electric at night between 12-7 am when we are all asleep. Then they tried to say it was my water tank because its on 24/7 and has been for 9 years. I've now made a complaint, they have 8 weeks to sort it out or it will be going to the ombudsman. I'm stuck with them until this is sorted. I've said that i'm not paying by direct debit and i want quarterly bills with my meter readings.

If this is accurate most certainly cancel your DD and immediately visit your local cab or the Energy Ombudsman. Energy bills are expensive but to this extent....There are lots of suppliers out there that will support you in getting it right and accurate. Good Luck.

“Massive monthly charge increase.”

Written on: 17/04/2013 by mikels (1 review written)

In Sep last year I transferred my gas and electricity supply to EDF. My usage was based on the last 12 months actual usage. The monthly payment was set at £94.00 per month. This was broadly in line with my previous supplier but the rate was fixed until 2014, instead of 2013. My March direct debit was increased to £168.00 with no notification by email, although I have a paperless account. It turns out I had been advised in March that this would happen but for me to know I would have to check… Read Full Review

Well unfortunately, for you, you are on a 'rocky road' as communication or should I say lack of communication is something that EDF specialise in. The expensive marketing campaign selling the 'Blue' promise is executed very well in leading to new customers, with most unaware that the continual increasing cost on their bills funds this advertising. Do not expect this lot to be upright and plead 'yes this is our error' because it will not happen...Change again while you can or you will be well out of pocket and good luck!

Written on: 30/04/2013

Much to my surprise I got a phone call a few days back from Customer services who, on he basis that summer should be coming, agreed my usage on gas, which was the problem, should be less over the next few months. They suggested lowering my direct debit by £54.00 per month which brought it down to an increase of about £10.00 per month. The whole lot to be checked in August. As I have a fixed tariff until April 2014 I will live with this, assuming nothing disastrous happens in August, and re-evaluate then as changing tariffes before summer would be a good move. Thanks for your interest.

Well this does not come as any surprise. Effectively, what this Company is saying, is firstly, the Computers do not have the capacity to deal with a straight forward Account Set up, (How many customers do EDF have?) manually works better, secondly the Accounting system does not work effectively to understand 'debit' vs 'credit', current usage or longterm expectant usage, instead it is easier for each specialist department to call in a debt collecting agency to sort out their own inefficiency problem? 21st century failure at it's best! Do you not agree?

EDF supplied both electricity and gas to me. When I switched to BG my final bills were :Electricity £127.23 debit. Gas £320 credit. Did not get re-imbursed. Waited. Bills and final demands came for electricity bills. Rang up complaints. Said Hey - you are billing me but you owe me the balance . They said )h Sorry but your gas credit has already en applied to your electricity bill and the 127 is the final bill for both Accepted it dubious. Now I study the bill - there is no connection between the bills. They said oh sorry - it is a bit obscure but we are changing it. Tell you what, We'll give you another month to pay the electricity. And not the initiative of the complaints guy - has to be company policy.

The Company has no Policy or should I say no legal above board policy.....I think your next move should be contact with the Energy Regulators.
EDF should not be allowed to withhold your money and if you are with British Gas they should have offered you advice before taking you on as a Customer. Good Luck..

Unfortunately you are partially correct EDF are one of the worst Companies (won't call them organisation as they do not know the meaning of the word) to deal with. The Blue promise actually means the air around you will be totally 'blue' all the time you are with them. They have absolutely no respect for the Customer, the staff do not communicate in house, try the chat room in India while you are on the phone in the UK, at first its hassle after a while (about 6 months) it becomes unbelievable. Obviously proving to succeed in the 21st century you need no Management skills or Business skills at all or communication skills!! (Hope for some) Good Luck with your change!!

Switched to EDF's Blue+Price Promise 3 months ago. It appears they have managed to bungle setting up my Direct Debits so I am paying far too little. Was previously with Scottish Power - had no problems with them at all and now regret switching.

EDF's Blue Price Promise actually means, the air will be blue once you start dealing with their call centre staff, the Promise does not exist and if it does all it means is that the air will be blue as your discover the lack of service, communication and the 'pluck a figure out of the air' approach to your usage. Well the Price is self explanitory if you understand double dutch and the lovely big salary and bonus the CEO recieves. If you are looking for a recent article on EDF's fun and games (cause it ain't a service!!) read Daily Mail page 26 article mentioning EDF....Reality as it is! EDF must be spending a small fortune with the debt collection agencies...

A word of warning if you are still with EDF and have a DD set up with them they will also take any monies owed randomely as they are an authority unto themselves and do not respond to anyone. Good luck with all the organisations that you have written too they must have such a backlog of complaints now. Realistically the problem should be trouble-shot directly at EDF not through a third party. This is total mis-management by an company that does not give a hoot....Reaping whlie they can...How long can they carry on for?

EDF failed to correctly set up the DD for my bill. 3 months into the contract I received a threatning letter saying we will be taken to court for non-payment. No previous notification received. When i ring them they are like automatons on the phone but finally one of them admitted that EDF had made a mistake and apologies, setting up a new DD. Today, Jan 13, we receive a letter telling us that they are seeking court action for non-payment of the bill and that they had tried to contact us on… Read Full Review

If you care to look at other comments on this site you will realise that you are not alone here. This 'EDF' is designed to upset, annoy, frustrate and alienate customers. I agree with you avoid.

We have been with EDF for 18 months and during that time DD has been put up twice from£120 t0m £164 and now £193! The £164 increase was only in November and is based on past years useage. They can't seem to understand that it is necessary to be paying this amount for 1 year to get out of a debit situation and we cant afford to pay £193

Hello, Well firstly I would request an answer as to why has their been such an increase and also look to see if your usage at home has changed at all. If you believe the bill is incorrect challenge this with EDF first, if unsuccessful, the Energy Ombudsman. In the meantime shop around for better deals where potentially you could get a capped rate so you know what you would be paying month on month. (No shocks) Request a monitor so that you can recognise what is using your fuels. There are some decent packages out there if you care to shop around. Do it now before you get sucked down the hole of out of control Energy debt. Also if over a quarter of your salary or money is being spent on Fuel this is seen as Fuel poverty therefore, support is available for FREE insulation of your property..Look on any Energy website to see how they can help you. Finally your local Council maybe into the Collective switching, give them a call to find out. Good Luck!
