How to File a Complaint Against Symbio Energy & Get Compensated

By October 2021, Symbio Energy found itself in trouble with Ofgem three times. In the month before that, nine small energy suppliers similar to Symbio across the UK went bust. That's disturbing for consumers in need of affordable power that challenges Big Energy.

Symbio Energy provided services to 48,000 residents and several non-domestic clients. The company ceased trading. In September 2021, the company stopped accepting new customers. As its consumers kept the phone lines busy and Customer Service on its toes, Ofgem fined the company over "technical issues".

Smaller energy suppliers have seen high gas prices, increased demand, and more threatening energy enterprises. Over the last year, a depressing number of UK energy suppliers have shuttered. And no one believes the trend is heading south any time soon.

Many energy companies are under pressure from Ofgem. Suppliers are struggling to keep up with payments to the organisation. While this isn't a sign of big trouble, it's a clear indicator that there's trouble across energy suppliers.

Let DoNotPay break down what's happening with Symbio and what the UK can expect and should do. And what you can do if you have complaints.

But, while Ofgem is choosing new suppliers and they advise you to wait to hear from them, you could switch your service. Ofgem wants you to wait for their appointed supplier to reach out first to take a meter reading.
