Pay as you go energy

An easy way to keep track of your energy usage.

Our Pay as you go service lets you top up your Smart Pay as you go meter and pay for the energy you use in advance – just like a Pay as you go mobile phone. It’s a handy way to keep track of your energy use and means you avoid the surprise of a large bill.

Why choose Pay as you go energy?

By choosing pay as you go energy, you’ll only pay for the energy you use, as you use it. You simply top up your account and you’re good to go.

If you prefer to pay for your energy as you go along, Pay as you go is for you. The alternative is to pay monthly, where you receive a monthly bill based on meter readings.

Some customers find using pay as you go energy fits in better with their finances. It also means you can build up credit to use during the winter months when you’re likely to use more energy.
