If you pay for both electricity and gas by Direct Debit you will receive a continuous discount through a reduction in your daily standing charge, worth £90 over each year.
Online Price Fix October 2015 is available to new or existing customers with standard credit or economy 7 meters paying by Direct Debit. Unfortunately it’s not available to customers with non-standard or pre-payment meters.
When you pay by Direct Debit, you’ll benefit from a daily discount in your standing charge on a continuous basis and this will, over each year, amount to a £90 discount if you choose both gas and electricity with npower and pay for both this way (so there is no additional discount after twelve months - because it is already taken into account in the price you have been paying each day).
You’ll need to register for an online account so you can view your bills, make payments, submit meter readings, track your energy usage and update your personal details. You can also access your account on the move on your smart phone with the free npower app. You can download it from the App Store and Google Play now.
There's no early exit fee if you change your tariff or supplier.
The TIL gives you all the information you need about a tariff in a standard format, to let you easily compare products. Each TIL is specific to the location of your property, fuel type (Gas or Electricity) and payment method.
The TIL contains infromation about the tariff, such as, costs for unit rates, standing charge costs, Tariff Comparison Rate (TCR), and discounts.
A standing charge applies to this tariff.
Our annual charges for the average dual fuel Direct Debit customer are at least 8.5% lower when compared with our Standard tariff (as at 4th August 2014), until 31st October 2015. Annual charges for individual customers will vary and may be higher than our Standard charges.
After 31st October 2015, you’ll automatically move to our cheapest Standard variable tariff applicable to you.
The Tariff Comparison Rate (TCR) is a rate for you to compare a tariff against another. It's a cost per kWh that a typical consumer would pay on that tariff. To work out the rate, we assume an average of kWh and then include the unit rates and standing charges. However, it's a guideline to help customers compare tariffs, it's not an actual price. The amount you pay will depend on your actual usage. Your current tariff's TCR is always printed on your bill or annual summary.
TCRs will vary by location, fuel type (e.g. gas) and payment method.

Your Direct Debit Discount: When you pay by Direct Debit, your daily standing charge will be discounted so that over a year you’ll receive a discount of £40 on your electricity charges and £50 on your gas charges for paying by Direct Debit. If you stop paying by Direct Debit, you’ll move on to the non-discounted version of our Standard tariff. If this happens, we’ll let you know. There is no additional discount after 12 months as it is already taken into account in the price you pay each day. Subject to change.
Meter read reminders: We’ll use the reading(s) you supply to produce your next bill whenever possible. There may be some circumstances when it isn’t possible to use your meter reading and in this case we’ll estimate your consumption. Our agents will still require access to your meter to take readings and for safety checks. The meter reads you supply will be in addition to our own meter reads and will be used to provide the most up-to-date view on your statement.
