Dear Mr Ribsskog

COMPLAINT ABOUT SCOTTISH POWER

Thank you for your E-Mail received on 6 December 2009.

What we can do, and can't do, is set out in our terms of reference (our responsibilities) which
you can find on our website at www.energy-ombudsman.org.uk, or by phoning 0330 440 1624 or
01925 530263. At the moment we don't have enough information to know if your complaint is
one that we can handle.

You can use our service if you are a household customer or small business customer who has
experienced problems with companies which provide energy.
A small business is one which employs fewer than ten people, and where the annual turnover for
the business is less than €2 Million Euro, or one which uses less than 200,000 kWh gas per year
or 55,000 kWh electricity per year.

If you have already complained to Scottish Power there are two situations where you can involve
us.

¨ You are not making satisfactory progress

You must follow your company's complaints procedure, which is set out in their code of practice
and allow them up to 8 weeks to sort the problem out for you. If, after 8 weeks of making your
complaint, you're still not happy with the way it's been handled, you can pass it to us. For
example, the company might not have replied to your complaint or you may not be satisfied with
the way they have sorted it out.

The deadline for bringing it to our attention is nine months from the date you first told the
company about the problem.

¨ You have received a deadlock letter from your company

You might get a letter from the company that says they will no longer be handling the complaint.
They might, for example, say that they can't do anything for you and this is their final position.
We call this a 'deadlock letter'. You then have six months from the date of the letter to pass your
complaint to us.

We recommend that you complete your company's complaints procedure by writing to them at
the address below.
