How much is my monthly Direct Debit?

Your monthly payment is the first thing you see on your bill – you can find it here.

We usually review this twice a year to make sure it covers your usage. Depending on this, your payments could either go up or down.

If this happens we’ll show you any changes here, along with the date they’ll take effect.

What does the meter reading mean?

Here’s your latest meter reading. We use it to work out how much gas or electricity you’ve used.

The more readings you send, the more accurate your bills will be. Without meter readings we have to estimate your bill, but we’ll always tell you if this happens.

You can send your readings online and you can set up meter read reminders to help you remember.

Where to find out how much energy you have used.

How much energy have I used?

Here you can see how much energy you have used in kilowatt hours and how much it has cost you in pounds and pence.

Is there anything left to pay?

You can see if there’s anything left to pay by looking at your account balance. This is how we work it out:

Amount left to pay from last bill + cost of energy used – any payments made = account balance.

If your account is in credit, we’ll either use it towards your next bill or refund you the money.

How much and when do I need to pay?

The amount you need to pay and the date it needs to reach us by are shown in the top right corner of your bill. This important information will be the first thing you see when you look at your bill.

Your bill shows how we have calculated the amount to pay. This is worked out by adding together the total amount left to pay from your previous statement and the total cost of the energy you have used, we then take off any payments you’ve made to give an account balance.

What does the meter reading mean?

Your bill shows your most recent meter reading. We will always tell you whether your bill is based on an estimated or actual meter reading. We use meter readings to calculate how much gas or electricity you’ve used, the more accurate the reading the more accurate your bill or statement will be.

If your bill is based on an estimate, we recommend that you send us a new meter reading. Submit an up to date meter reading or sign up to our meter read reminder service.

This section shows your account balance. This important information will be the first thing you see when you look at your bill.
