Terms and Conditions

Under the Direct Debit Guarantee, if the amount you pay or the payment date changes, we will let you know 10 working days before we debit your account, or on another agreed date. If npower, your bank or building society makes a mistake with your payment, you're also guaranteed a full and immediate refund from your branch of the amount paid. This information has been sourced from BACS.

Automatic refund: Given on credit balances at time of annual review based on actual reading (which may be a customer's own reading supplied to us) and where the credit is over £60. If you take both fuels from npower, we'll use any credit on one fuel account to clear a debt on the other fuel before any refund will be made. Credits of less than £60 will be refunded on request but this could affect future monthly direct debit amounts. If your credit is less than the automatic refund amount, it will be used to offset ongoing payments.
