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 site visits
Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are committed to safeguarding our customers, employees and partners. Therefore, we are working with metering agents to ensure prioritisation of essential, emergency work. All non-emergency metering jobs will be postponed so that those in the most vulnerable situations can be helped. Emergency work includes but is not limited to;
- Gas escapes
- Restoring gas or electricity supply to a property
All emergency jobs will also be risk assessed prior to the job going ahead. We apologise for any inconvenience and will provide updates as and when they develop. Please ensure that you send regular meter readings to us, this is quick and easy to do through our self-serve channels above.
