No more running to the shops in the rain. Smart Pay As You Go* lets you top up your meters from your smartphone or computer.

Benefits of Smart Pay As You Go

  • Control your energy – set up balance alerts to let you know when you’re running low
  • Top up anywhere – use your smartphone, our app, your computer or pop in to any post office

What are the benefits to smart meters?

Smart energy meters send us your meter readings automatically, wirelessly and free of charge.

Your free smart meter from E.ON comes with a Smart Energy Display (SED) which shows you just how much energy you're using — in pounds and pence — so you know how much you're spending.


We’ll let you know if you’re able to switch to Smart Pay As You Go.
