Big Six energy supplier Scottish Power was today ordered by regulator Ofgem to improve the way it deals with customers or face a sales ban.
Ofgem found the firm was making customers wait for too long on the telephone, forcing a quarter of calls to be abandoned, while too many bills were also being sent out late.
Ofgem warned the Spanish-owned firm that failure to meet new targets would result in it having to suspend sales activities.
It has separately launched an investigation into the gas and electricity supplier's treatment of customers.
Energy providers will have to improve their services by "£12 a year less" than they normally would and then pass those savings on to consumers, OfGem have announced.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain OfGem's Maxine Frerk, said the changes should come into force "from next April" and savings "should flow into customer's bills from that point".
Compensation for energy customers, who have been left without power for more than a day during severe weather, has been tripled.
Energy regulator Ofgem is to take action against two power companies, who have already paid out £4.7 million to powerless homes, for even more compensation.
