I have a Pay As You Go meter - how can I top up my meter if I can't speak to you on the phone?
You can top up your meter through our app, your online account or if you don’t have an online account yet you can top up. Over the next couple of months, we're making improvements to our systems. Whilst we usually do this overnight this may take a little longer than normal and you may not be able to top up during this time. We’ll be in touch to let you know when we plan to update our systems.
For non urgent business PAYG queries please get in touch with us by emailing SMEfirstname.lastname@example.org, we’ll get back to you as soon as we can, but at this time we will be prioritising the customers who need our help the most.

Smart meter installations
We're now ready to continue installing smart meters following changes to our installation process.
We have developed a no contact installation process which all our technicians will follow.
How we’re keeping you and our technician safe during the installation:
We’ll call ahead of arrival to make sure it is safe for our technician to enter your property
We’ll ALWAYS keep a social distance of at least 2 metres between the technician and any members at the property. This may mean we ask you to stay in a different room to the technician
Our technicians will be wearing appropriate PPE for the duration of the install
Gloves will be sanitised between each job and we’ll also sanitise any surface we touch before and after we touch it
If any conversations need to take place during the install, or you would like tailored energy efficiency advice, this will be done via telephone at a safe distance
We'll remove all waste in accordance with our safe working methods
How we’re keeping you and our technicians safe
Following changes we've made to our installation process to keep you and our colleagues safe, we're now ready to fit your smart meter for free.
Here's more information on how our no contact installation will work.
How can I best prepare my business for the time ahead?
We are asking all customers, where possible to register their account online, to manage their payments, view bills and provide meter readings. You will need your account number at hand to be able to do this. We also offer a smartphone app which some customers may find easier to use.
For any business customers that have Pay As You Go, we are reminding you of the top-up methods available and recommending you keep your meter topped up as much as possible.
My business energy plan is due to expire shortly, what will happen next?
Where possible, we’re contacting customers about their renewal. We recognise that this may not be your priority at the moment but if we can’t reach you we’d encourage you to contact us and renew your plan, if appropriate – if you email us please provide your account number. If your contract expires you’ll move onto a Non-Contract Rate, which may be higher than you’re currently paying, please be assured that we’ll agree a new contract and backdate these prices when you’re back up and running.
