Benefits of Smart Pay As You Go

Stay on track

It can be hard to save energy when you can’t see how much you’re using. With your smart in-home display, you can see what you’re spending at a glance, in pounds and pence. And with the handy budget feature, it’s even easier to hit your targets and see where you could shrink your spending.

New ways to top up

Gone are the days of dashing to the post-office for your energy. With Smart Pay As You Go, you can also top up on your smartphone, via the app or on your computer. So you can top up in all sorts of places, even in the bath (if you're careful).

Transfer credit

For even more flexibility, Smart Pay As You Go lets you transfer credit between your electricity and gas meter. So if one has a high balance and the other is running low, you can even things out with the touch of a button.
