Helpful documents and further information

Struggling to pay

We understand that the emerging COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation may be a worrying time for our customers, so we want to assure you that we are doing everything possible to support you through this difficult time. It is advisable for all businesses to provide regular meter readings. Where your business has closed, has reduced hours or staffing levels, your consumption should go down. We need to reflect this in your monthly invoices. If you are struggling to pay during this time we have a range of options available. This will include, in the appropriate situations, financial support such as setting up payment plans or pausing debt repayment for a period of time. No credit meters will be disconnected during the outbreak, however please be mindful that any support we provide you now will need to be repaid at a future date.

Updating your circumstances

It is very important during this time to submit your meter reads, especially if there is a change in your business circumstances such as having reduced hours or being closed.
These circumstances are likely to reduce your consumption so we need to reflect this in your monthly invoices. However, please be aware that your daily standing charge will still be applied. The standing charge is a daily cost which relates to delivering and supplying energy to your business, this includes the maintenance of your meter.

Critical vs non critical sites

We’ve been working hard to ensure our customers, employees and partners are protected by following the Government guidelines surrounding COVID-19. As restrictions begin to ease we are looking to restart non-emergency metering jobs, such as meter readings and metering works, whilst ensuring everyone involved is protected. Our partners will carry out a risk assessment before entering your home and always adhere to the Government guidelines including staying socially distanced and wearing Personal Protective Equipment (where applicable) during any visit. Here’s a short video from one of our partners, National Grid, to help demonstrate the type of procedures that are in place.
