Direct Debit Payment
If you pay by Direct Debit, it’s really important that you do not cancel this, as you may incur additional charges and be placed on a different tariff meaning costs could increase.
If you are billing on estimates, please give us up-to-date readings to ensure you are billed accurately. It could be that you are paying for more than you use. If you do not already have one, having a smart meter installed can help save you time and money.
