Essentially, it’s an energy switch (transfer) that happens in error (goes wrong).
There are a few different reasons this might happen:
1. Your details are incorrect on the national database of energy information we use to make your switch happen.
2. Someone’s asked to switch your address instead of their own.
3. You’ve changed your mind about switching after the 14-day cooling-off period.
You can read about in more detail in the what’s an erroneous transfer question – it covers all the things that can go wrong when switching or transferring your account to a different energy supplier.
