We are waiting to help, please call our helpline on 0800 072 8560*. Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm and Saturdays 8am to 2pm.
We'll let you know if your bill isn't paid. We'd love it if you contacted us as soon as there's a problem. That way, we can help you manage your bills and avoid taking serious action (which we really don't want to do).
If we fit a Pay As You Go meter, we'll make sure it's suitable, checking that you have easy access to it. And we will never knowingly disconnect the supply of a vulnerable person.
Please note: If you have a Green Deal agreement in place, any prices or discounts quoted do not include your Green Deal payments.
See what we can do to help you get back on the right track.
