Do you have a compliant or problem to raise or need information about EDF Energy’s billing or energy services? Contact their expert customer care team on 0843 504 7187 to receive prompt, top notch support for any of your gas and electricity issues.
EDF Energy is an integrated energy firm operating in the UK. Its chief endeavour is in selling electricity and gas to millions of home and business customers across Britain.
Born from multiple mergers of southern English electricity boards in the early 2000s, the French-owned company has since diversified to nuclear operations to compliment its coal and gas initiatives. Its unusual decision to take legal action against environmentalists accusing the company of excessive fossil fuel dependency prompted criticism and opposition in 2013.
Despite these recent backlashes, the EDF’s position in the energy market remains both strong and sizeable with revenues recently topping the 4 billion pound mark.

EDF Energy is one of the ‘big six’ energy firms that dominate the UK’s domestic and commercial energy market. Their parent organisation the EDF Group owns the largest non-martial nuclear fleet in the world, with stations in France, the US, the UK and China.
In the UK they run 15 nuclear power plants, including: Torness, Hinckley point, Hartlepool, Sizewell, Dungenness, Heysham, and Hunterston. EDF are the primary energy providers to London, the South-east and the South-west. Whilst their logo is a conservative image of five flames in a circle, their mascot is an orange dancing flame (or brown dancing poop) called Zingy that even has it’s own Facebook page.
There are several videos on YouTube that feature customers of EDF Energy complaining about call waiting times and billing mistakes. One of these simply shows a mobile phone on speaker, which has been in the EDF Energy call waiting queue for over twenty minutes. The video is titled ‘waiting for EDF Energy to answer the phone’.
In 2011 EDF introduced a new IT system, there many teething problems with its implementation, which led to a 30% rise in complaints about the company’s customer service procedure. These complaints reached Ofgem – the UK energy company regulator – who ordered them to pay £3 million to benefit vulnerable customers as recompense. Part of this fine has been used to set up an extra phone line, that helps customers who are in debt to pay their energy bills.
EDF Energy came 13th out of 17 companies in the which.co.uk energy company customer satisfaction survey of 2014.
EDF, alongside partners from across the globe, is currently constructing a 3260 megawatt nuclear energy plant at Hinckley Point. The Hinckley Point C plant, which will be the third plant at Hinckley, has come under a great deal of criticism due to environmental concerns and foreign involvement in the project. Alongside major financial investment in the Hinckley Point C Power station, China will also be providing some of the technology vital to its success.
