What we're doing for you

Jordan Torres

At So Energy we’re committed to instilling a sense of community with how we operate as a business. We’re committed to going further as a business, both how we operate internally and how we support our customers. In this blog we’ll explain some of the ways we’re acting with community at the heart of what we do. 

Support for customers struggling to pay bills

We understand it’s a difficult time for customers amidst the cost of living crisis. But we want to ensure you know what help we can offer. The sooner you get in touch, the sooner we can better understand your circumstances and help. We’ve got an in depth blog about support that is available if you’re struggling to pay your bills.

Priority Services Registration and Vulnerability Commitment 

Our Priority Services Registration (PSR) is our commitment to make sure we do more for those who need it. Whether you’ve got a medical condition or have been struggling in other ways- we can help! This means we can offer extra help such as making sure you’re prioritised if there’s a power cut in your area. Our full eligibility can be found here. 

The Vulnerability Commitment is a voluntary agreement launched by Energy UK in December 2020. It is open to all energy suppliers and aims to improve the support available to vulnerable households.  We’re proud to be a founding signatory of the initiative, and we have pledged to continually improve our services for those that need it the most. Some of the commitments involve providing adequate communication channels for customers to reach us on, along with responding to feedback on how we can make our communications more simple to understand. You can read more about the Vulnerability Commitment here.
