    I have followed their formal complaints procedure and written to their CEO, I have read receipts but got nothing despite continuing to complain for 3 months. It was only when I CC'ed OFGEM ConsumerAffairs@ofgem.gov.uk that they finally responded but the person replying clearly had no clue and did not deal with the issues.

    This company is simply not fit for purpose.

    I did manage to get put through to someone at OFGEM and they said they are looking into Solarplicity after a lot of complaints, they encouraged me to put my complaint on Trustpilot as it seems that TrustPilot verify that you are are a customer, so they know they are genuine.

    Personally I have seen so many negative reviews on Trustpilot I wonder how anyone puts up with this company

    I thought your balance was able to be to transferred to your new supplier or is that only when they go bust.

    Solarplicity has already had one of it's companies with winding up proceeding brought against it by HMRC so one wonders about them.

    I have never dealt with a company that is so consistently poor at customer service, in fact I do not think they understand the concept. I think OFGEM should stop them taking on new customers until they can show they are resolving problems and have turned around their situation.

    Employing a great South African call centre but not giving them the ability to even enter my readings after the portal has refused to take them 4 times is clearly insufficient. It is a massive waste of money to use them as a glorfied message taking service, the whole idea is to get them to deal with processes that solve customer problems, not just change the route of complaint from email, phone to call centre.

    Here is their complaints procedure which is useless and unresponsive, just another way to kick it into long grass; I find their ombudsman useless too (no teeth) I am taking them to Court.

    Probably the worst company that I have ever dealt with, literally! I am not one to complain but Solarplicity simply has to be written about!
    Given that I work long hours I tend to use email where possible to communicate. Well, not with Solarplicity I dont! Probably no less than ten emails have gone totally ignored. I didn't even get any bills for around 7 months,but they did of course carry on taking the DD. I currently have two seperate compensation claims outstanding with them for missed appointments by engineers. Each time I phone up I am told that it will be escalated and the claim will be paid yet months later, still nothing! Also because I didn't receive bills for months I didn't get informed that they put their prices up quite a lot!!! The only thing that could be said for them originally was that they were cheap. Now they are not even that. It is a company that people need to avoid because honestly, I have never come across a company this bad in all my 43 years on this planet. It really really is bad.
