Terrible service from 0330 094 5800 – please help

I’ve tried to contact Shell on 0330 094 5800 twice. Yesterday, it was a terrible line with a long pause each time I spoke, then myself and the customer service assistant would both speak together. This went on for 15 minutes then the line went dead. Issue obviously not resolved.

I decided to try again today. This time I spoke to a customer service assistant who put me on hold for 23 minutes without getting back to me, then the line went dead again.

The issue is still not resolved. PLEASE can someone at Shell help? read more

Worst company I’ve ever dealt with

Worst company I’ve ever dealt with.
Where do I start. Dd jump from £67pm to £213 pm. Can’t get through to anyone on phone. Mistakes made by phone operators or they don’t update my account and the next person has no idea I already spoke to someone
Every time I submit a reading on my day and night box shell swap them so they are wrong.
Took £400 out of my account without telling me and then when I rang they said they had no record of it. I had to get the bank to put it back in. Shell said they’d look into it and never did.
Have opened complaint case with resolver and a year later I still haven’t had an explanation or apology and they say I now owe £1700 because of a dummy meter exchange. I have no idea what that means.
Weeks ago I was supposed to be getting a form to work out my budget for replaying and I am still waiting.
DO NOT GO WITH SHELL read more

Electric Car Charging Stations Are Finally About to Take Off

Bloomberg News: Laura Millan Lombrana and Rachel Morison: June 23, 2020

Electric Car Charging Stations Are Finally About to Take Off

(Bloomberg) — The electric vehicle sector has been stuck for years with a chicken-and-egg problem. Until there were extensive networks of public charging stations, a critical mass of people would never feel comfortable driving EVs–but until a critical mass of people were driving EVs, there was no sense in investing in extensive networks of public charging stations.

It may be the coronavirus pandemic that finally breaks the stalemate. BloombergNEF’s latest Long-Term Electric Vehicle Outlook predicts that EVs sales will experience a smaller dip than traditional auto sales as a result of the broader economic squeeze, and that they’ll bounce back more quickly once the market recovers. EVs and the infrastructure needed to charge them have also been a part of many of the stimulus packages announced by European and Asian governments. Just in the past few weeks, Germany included chargers in its €2.5 billion proposed economic package, and the European Union announced that it’s aiming to have 1 million public chargers by 2025, from fewer than 200,000 today. read more

Energy customers face bailiffs as Ofgem allows debt collecting again

Gas and electricity customers face the prospect of debt collectors chasing up unpaid bills after the energy industry regulator told suppliers they no longer had to offer unlimited coronavirus payment holidays.

Ofgem gave the go-ahead to restart debt collections weeks after calling on energy suppliers to offer help to customers facing financial pain due to the Covid-19 pandemic by delaying or reducing bills.

Bailiffs were also barred from chasing households struggling to pay council tax or parking fines, but these rules will remain in place for at least another two months. read more

Shell Energy launches EV charging bundle offering 2,000 miles free charging

Alice Grundy: Reporter, Current±: 20 Feb 2020

Shell Energy is launching a new electric vehicle (EV) charging offer including an EV tariff and charger.

The offer includes a discounted home smart charger installed for £299, a saving of 14% compared to the retail price of £349.

The charger, provided by Shell-owned NewMotion, provides 7kW of power, charging a typical EV in five hours, Shell said. It will be powered by 100% renewable energy, with Shell Energy switching to 100% renewables last year as it re-branded from First Utility. read more

Absolutely shocking, speed is less than 1 Mbps and can’t get any TV streaming. I went for Matin Lewis offer of £50 off 12 months contract and didn’t even get that!

Awful service

Awful service , had no contract with but still charged for switching supplier, they overcharged , when asked for the final bill, they passed my account to debt collectors ,paid off my bill but still no refund for the over charged amount.

Appalling

In my experience quite the worst supplier I have ever dealt with. Eight days since I disputed their requirement to lift my bills, unnecessarily, by 25% and still nothing but an automated acknowledgement. Except one other to say that they have made it a ‘complaint’, which I know, again from past experience, means that my email has now gone to the back of another queue. Emailed the MD/CEO (whatever he calls himself) but that’s been ignored too.
I’m leaving and I suggest other do too before they have a bitter experience.
If you’re not a customer, don’t become one.
There are good reasons it has the low rankings it does.
BEST AVOIDED.
Shell Energy’s reply (below) is, of course, in the usual corporate defensive mode. Just like the treatment I’ve had from Vodafone in the recent past, Becca says “I hope I can provide some assistance” and then provides none! What she does is seek to justify the company’s procedures. They don’t need explaining to me; I’m only too well aware of the procedures!
What I want, and what I suspect most other CUSTOMERS want, is for Shell to employ sufficient numbers so that I can get some human intervention in a timely fashion. Not be directed to their web site. There is not an app or a program designed that can answer all the questions a customer might have. For me, timely means next day at worst – not two weeks if you’re lucky. What kind of service is that? read more

Terrible customer service

First they removed the night meter reading from our account so not able to log usage. Then it took 2 months to “sort” only to discover they had put us on different tarrif with same day/night charge. Now they don’t appear to understand what we are telling them and cannot sort it out.
USELESS, AVOID.

Shell Energy unveils carbon offset Go Further tariffs

Alice Grundy Junior reporter, 02 Jun / 2020 15:38

Shell Energy has launched two new tariffs, both of which, it says, are to be carbon neutral.

The ‘Go Further’ tariffs are to provide carbon neutral electricity and gas, relying on certified carbon credits from projects that protect or enhance forests around the world for their carbon offset status.

Each carbon credit, it said, represents the avoidance or removal of one tonne of CO2 and is to be subject to a third-party verification process. read more

Rubbish customer service

Rubbish customer service. Just spent half hour waiting to speak to someone about confusing emails re tariff, then after two minutes I was cut off!!!

Horrendous company. AVOID!

I would give 0 stars if I could. Was with first utility which was fine then Shell bought it. It came up to my renewal date with only a marginal increase in cost so I renewed. A month or so later they said my bill was going up for £57 to £83! Why wasn’t it mentioned when I was at renewal stage that I was in arrears?! They tricked me into renewing and tried to increase my bill. Now I’m leaving I have to pay £60 to leave as well as my the other money owed. Outrageous. Will never ever ever ever return to them. read more

3 months to close an account!

Closed my mum’s account as she has sold her house and moved into a residential care home.

Despite being almost £400 in credit they continue to take her monthly direct debit from her bank account and according to the website it will take 12 weeks (3 months!) for the refund.

Appalling service!

Never been with this company

Never been with this company, never even heard of them really.
Was with First Utility and they mucked me around for about 1 yr and charged me double what i should have paid, got it all sorted out and they had the cheek to ask me to continue with they.End of story..NO
Some 2 years later , i get call from Shell Energy saying i owe them £87 as they took over F Utility and got outstanding debt, rubbish, got harrassed, blocked there number, but phoned on others for the past 4 to 6 months.
Threatened them with a injunction as am 65 and stressing me to the max.
I owe nothing , especially to them as i have no contract or deallings with them and settled with F/U WHO NEVER CONTACTED ME IN THE 2 YRS PRIOR TO THIS.

Avoid like the plague, they are taking advantage of people in lockdown

I was with the previous company before Shell took them over and had no problems with them, as soon as shell took over its been nothing but problems, for no reason my bill went from £ 75 to £92 and then 3 months later £102, i asked them to change my tariff to a cheaper one (£85) which all went through and i received confrontation. I checked the small print and there was 0 charge for changing tarriffs.
I got my bill today, not only has my bill stayed at £102 but theyve also charged me £100 for unknown “other charges and tarriff” upon looking at my bill the price p/kwh had DOUBLED in one month this has put me over £220 in arrears. And they do not want to help and say its what i owe so it must be paid even though they themselves dont know what the extra £100 charges are. It seems they are taking advantage of people being in lockdown and hiking there prices up
I have made a formal complaint to ofgem read more

Coronavirus: UK energy firms still using debt collectors despite pandemic

Energy suppliers in the UK have continued to use debt collectors, even after they agreed with the government to support customers in financial distress during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Guardian, customers have been targeted by debt collectors and warned that action may be taken against them if they don’t pay their bills.

In one letter, Shell Energy warned a customer that arrangements could be made for a collection agent to visit their home to recoup an outstanding balance of £78.51 ($97.58). read more

IGNORANT, INCOMPETENT, DISGUSTING ORGANISATION

IGNORANT, INCOMPETENT ORGANISATION. If I could award this disgusting company -5 stars then I would. I spoke with a senior manager a few weeks ago to request a payment holiday given the current situation. He agreed stating no problem at all and and suggested an 8 week payment holiday and if I require a longer period then simply contact them again in eight weeks. He also reassured me that no payment letters would be sent over this period and that my account was on hold. Fantastic or so thought until a few weeks later I when I begin to receive numerous threatening letters and and emails from a Shell Energy contractor DEBIT COLLECTORS !! read more

Shell Energy Debt Collectors active despite coronavirus agreement

Britain’s energy suppliers are continuing to use debt collectors to chase unpaid bills after promising to help households during the coronavirus pandemic by offering payment plans to struggling customers.

Under an agreement with the government, energy suppliers are expected to identify customers who might be in financial distress and offer to reassess, reduce or pause bill payments to help “reassure” homes during the coronavirus lockdown.

But many households and small businesses with outstanding balances on their energy accounts may still be targeted by debt collectors with warnings that action may be taken against them if they don’t pay their bills. read more
