Ecotricity Free Contact Number

If you are looking for an Ecotricity free contact number, the good news is that almost all calls to Ecotricity should be free, depending on your calling plan. However, it is important to note that there is no dedicated free Ecotricity contact number as Ecotricity’s phone numbers are all 01 or 03 numbers.

According to phone regulator Ofcom, phone numbers beginning with 01 & 03 are cheaper than 08 numbers but could cost up to 16p per minute if you are calling from a landline. If you are on a prepayment plan for your mobile phone, the cost per minute would depend on your provider.

If you are still concerned about the cost of Ecotricity contact numbers, it's best to get in touch with your phone company to find out if 01 & 03 numbers are included in your calling plan or get a free callback from Selectra.

On the plus side, 01 & 03 numbers are included for free in most UK calling plans.

Therefore, if you are looking to contact Ecotricity by phone, the call will likely be free of charge. If you are looking to contact Ecotricity by email or another method, skip ahead to our section on other Ecotricity contact methods.

Ecotricity Phone Number for Customer Service

If you are looking to speak to an Ecotricity customer service agent, it's best to double-check the number before calling to ensure you receive the help you need.

Ecotricity has many departments, and it's easy to end up in the Ecotricity sales department if you aren't careful. This would be useless if you have a query about your current bill or are looking to complain about a problem with Ecotricity.

As we mentioned in our guide to Ecotricity, the company is known to have an average call wait time of 14:06 minutes. Therefore, to ensure that your query is handled correctly, it's best to call the Ecotricity customer service number only if you have an issue that requires a customer service agent.

Ecotricity customer service number: 0145 375 6111

If you are looking to register a complaint with the renewable energy provider, this is also the best number to call. We also always recommend you request the Ecotricity complaints ID number as proof the complaint has been filed. This will allow you to escalate your complaint to Ofgem at a later date if your complaint is left unresolved.
