The whole saga started in September 2022. We were contacted by SO Energy with the offer of a Smart Meter needless to say we (regrettably) accepted. The Smart Meter was installed ( electric only) and it never worked. We contacted SO Energy …

So far, SO Energy has been reliable and cost effective. Glitches in their website seem to have been rectified and in general I found the website user friendly. I wish there was a more detailed breakdown of energy usage but on the hole, …

I have been a customer of So Energy for a while now. I have never had a problem with them. When our previous fixed rate ended, I called to discuss what was available and the gentleman who answered my call was very helpful. Our account runs …

We have been with So Energy for over 2 years now and our experience has been awful. Shocking customer service. Due to the fuel crisis we are stuck with them for now. We had a faulty smart meter that’s taken 2 years to sort out. Kept …

THE worst company I have ever had to deal with and unfortunately have been stuck with. Rising gas prices have made it impossible to change companies. They’re extremely expensive. Despite having a smart meter, I have to manually submit …

Had a smart meter installed in Dec 2021. The engineer came and installed it but couldn’t complete the installation as their servers were apparently down. I was assured that someone would be in touch and it would be a quick fix for the next …

Absolutely appalling. Anyone complaining needs to be aware that the customer service team can only send an email to the complaints team. Apparently there’s a huge back log in the complaints team, so although they have an 8 week window to …

I’ve had no problems with So thus far. I felt their pricing strategy was fair. However they have endlessly hassled me to have a smart meter which I’ve refused. They are now telling me that radio signal turn off next year will disable my …

Don’t go near this company. In the middle of winter, I have a credit balance of £400 on my account which isn’t (repeat: isn’t) taken into account when they calculate my monthly direct debit payments. So they’re sitting on my £400 just …

DO NOT MOVE TO THIS COMPANY. 16 week of complaining and I still await an accurate bill due to an issue with a new smart meter – that was fitted to help me bill more accurately ironically. Worse though was their lack of communication and …

Greed got the better of this company. I liked the ability to monitor daily usage which eventually stopped but when they tried to increase my monthly direct debit to way beyond what I knew I’d use I had to move away. My new provider charges less per month and I am in credit. Very poor customer services.
