Based in Nottingham, Entice Energy has a handful of tariff options to choose from, including gas, electricity or dual fuel with monthly direct debit payments.While they’re relatively early on their journey (established in 2015), they’re already leading the way with their cost-effective tariffs and energy free customer service – keeping costs low and transferring this saving to their customers. However, some of their technology is a little far behind the big players, with no prepayment meters, no smart meter support and no customer app. Let’s take at who they are, what their customers say and some Entice Energy reviews.
Last update: February 2021

Entice Energy‘s tagline ‘Smaller Supplier, Bigger Savings’ show how proud they are of their Mansfield roots, with a big focus on providing great ‘energy free’ customer service, easy processes and simple tariffs that lead to big savings for their customers.

What are the pros and cons of choosing Entice Energy as your energy supplier?

While they definitely lead the way among smaller UK energy providers in some aspects, there are still pros and cons of switching your energy across to Entice Energy.

The pros of Entice Energy are:

  • Quick customer service response time
  • All online servicing, with good account management functionality and a website that’s simple and easy to navigate for customers
  • Dedicated account managers, whose time you can book out for a call about your account
  • Competitive pricing and tariffs
  • The option to pick a gas-only supply – many other UK energy suppliers don’t offer this.

And some of their weaker points are:

  • Lack of smart meters – any customers who switch with a smart meter already installed will lose functionality and will have to revert to supplying manual readings
  • They don’t appear to use renewable energy sources in their fuel
  • They don’t supply or support prepayment meters
  • Only a handful of tariff options.

Entice Energy complaints and issue resolution

For customers with complaints or issues with their Entice Energy fuel supply, they encourage you to get in touch in any of the following ways:

  • Call Entice Energy customer services on 0330 403 0040
  • Send an email to help@enticeenergy.com
  • Book an appointment with your account manager at a time that suits you, and they’ll call you back.

Entice Energy’s Issue resolution

Following a three-step process, Entice Energy’s approach to issue resolution is simple.

  1. Get in touch
  2. Escalate the complaint (if needed)
  3. Escalate to the Energy Ombudsman (if still not resolved).

In the first step, Entice say that customers can get in touch by phone, message or email to raise a complaint, where they promise to resolve all customer issues by the end of the following working day.

If customers are unhappy with the resolution offered, they can escalate the complaint to a senior member of staff. If the problem was caused by Entice, they will offer an apology, explain why it happened and make a plan to resolve it.

After those two steps, if customers are still unhappy after 8 weeks they can contact the Energy Ombudsman to start a free and independent investigation. This option may result in remedial action or compensation if Entice is found to be at fault.

Entice Energy in the news

In early 2020, Ofgem issued a ‘Final Order’ to Entice Energy because they failed to become a DCC user by the deadline and were non-compliant. A DCC user is a business who is signed up with the Data Communications Company – the people that own the smart meter devices and data transmission.

In non-legal terms, they were set a target to become a DCC user by the deadline of 31 March 2020, and the final order stopped them taking on any new energy customers until this point. This was then resolved in June of 2020 – so we may see Entice Energy take a different standpoint on their lack of smart meter support and installations shortly as a result.
