How to make your complaint more effective
The more information you provide about your complaint, the faster we can begin helping you. Here are a few important tips about gathering the information we need to give you the best possible support:
- Let us know what you feel was unfair or unreasonable and why.
- Keep a record of all your conversations with Hydro One employees, including their names and the dates of those conversations.
- Keep copies of any letters or emails you have sent or received.
- Tell us what you feel would be a fair outcome for your complaint. For example, do you want:
- An apology
- A billing correction
- A change to Hydro One policy
- A service that could have been offered but was not, or a change to the way services are offered?
- Let us know the best time, and the best way to get hold of you.
- Provide us with copies of anything you think is important to your complaint.
