Meeting the highest of service standards

Every year, we’re measured by
our regulator against 51 separate criteria. These criteria cover safety, reliability, customer service, environment, gas connections
and social obligations. It’s a rigorous process that keeps us on our toes, and makes sure you get a great service from us.

Delivering a world-class performance

We measure our performance against the best companies in the UK by participating in the Institute of Customer Service benchmarking scheme. In 2018, we scored higher than many well-known brands including John Lewis and Google.

We don’t always get it right however, so we voluntarily double our compensation payments for those times when we fail to meet our high performance standards.

Connecting with customers

We connect around 7,000 customers to the gas network every year and in 2017/18, we completed 97% of new connections on the date pre-agreed with the customer.

We also got quotes out quickly with 99% of standard quotes issued within six working days. We’re now developing an even more responsive service to make enquiries, applications and payments smoother and make
sure customers projects remain
on track.

Let's talk

Are we measuring up to your expectations? How can we improve our response when things go wrong? How can we make our roadworks less painful and exceed your expectations? How can we return the area where we work to normal and get it right first time after every hole we dig?
