You can take control of your bills and make sure they’re accurate by updating your meter readings online. If you’ve got an online account, the great news is you can update your meter reading at any time and find out how much you’ve used, even if you’re not due a bill. There's lots of other benefits of giving up to date meter readings as well!
If you have an online account, please log in. If not, you just need to register for an online account. Click on your electricity or gas account under ‘your service’ and submit your meter reading.
Once you’ve submitted your reading, we’ll give you an up to date balance. We’ll work out what you’ve used since the last reading, and include any payments you’ve made since the last bill.
All you need is a few details, including your 10-digit customer account number which can be found on the front of your bill. Simply fill in our online registration form and that’s it! You’ll soon be able to manage your accounts online simply and effectively.
You can also complete our online form to let us know your meter readings, but this can take up to five days to be updated.
If you'd rather, you can call our automated Meterline and give us your readings on 0800 107 3205*. Meterline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Readings given via Meterline can take a few days to be updated.
If you've just had a bill, we'll update your account and send you a new one. If you're due a bill we'll use this to bill your account. And if you're just letting us know your reading, we'll add it to your account for information.
If you’re moving out of a property we supply, you can give us your opening or final meter readings using our moving house form.
You can give us your final reading over the phone 24/7 using our Meterline number 0800 107 3205* or via your online account. You can also use our meter reading form if you don’t have an online account.
You can give us your quarterly readings for your Generation and Export meter (if applicable) via our FiT meter reading form or by calling 0800 072 3933*. This facility is to be used when we have asked you for readings to enable us to pay you. Please DO NOT use this to submit your start meter readings.
You can give us a meter reading as often as you like.
If you put the wrong meter reading online, don’t worry, you can go back and put the right one in. When you give us a meter reading, we’ll check that it’s about what we expect your usage to be. If it’s not, then we’ll tell you.
If your reading is correct and you’re still having problems, please contact us so we can help.
Even if you provide your meter readings online, we still need to do safety checks on your meter. We have a responsibility to inspect your meter at least once every two years.
So, if a meter reader or engineer calls please let them in.
Take control of your bills and only pay for what you use by learning how to read your meter.
