ScottishPower has been fined £18 million by regulator Ofgem for customer service failings.

 

 

The energy firm "failed to treat its customers fairly" when handling calls, dealing with complaints and billing, the watchdog said.

 

 

Dermot Nolan, Ofgem chief executive, said:

"Scottish Power let its customers down during the implementation of a new IT system. When things went wrong, it didn't act quickly enough to fix them.

 

 

"This created frustration and worry for many customers, who also wasted a lot of time trying to contact the supplier by phone."

 

 

ScottishPower was blasted for "unacceptably long call waiting times", with the company receiving more than one million complaints between June 2013 and December 2015.

 

 

Ofgem added that thousands of Ombudsman rulings were not implemented within the required 28 days and ScottishPower's failures resulted in more than 300,000 customers receiving late final bills. This meant many customers did not receive money they were owed.

 

 

However, the regulator also said that, since it opened the investigation, ScottishPower has improved its customer service.

 

 

Up to £15 million of the fine will be paid out to ScottishPower customers affected by customer service issues and the remainder will go to charity
