The safety of our customers and our employees is our main priority and please know that we are working closely with government, health organisations, the energy regulator Ofgem and consumer advice organisations to ensure we continue to follow the very latest advice and are as prepared as we can be. We are currently operating with a reduced workforce so we are temporarily changing our opening hours to Monday to Friday 8am – 7pm and Saturday 9am – 5pm.

Where possible, please try our FAQ’s which you will find here. We’ve also listed below some useful tips for these unprecedented times.

Our Useful Tips

Top-up Regularly: Keep an eye on your credit balance and make regular top-ups so you don’t run out of credit. It’s a good idea to top-up more than you usually would, whenever you can

Friendly Credit: You have access to friendly credit which means you will not lose electricity during the following hours:

  • Traditional meter – Monday to Saturday 8pm – 8am and all day Sunday and Bank Holidays until 8am on our next working day
  • Smart meter – Monday to Friday 3pm – 10am and all day Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays until 10am on our next working day

Emergency Credit: If you can’t get out to a PayPoint, Payzone or Post Office and have run out of gas or electricity, you can use the emergency credit facility on your prepayment meter

  • Traditional meters - £10
  • Smart meter - £15

Top-up from Home: If you have a smart meter, download our app from the app store or google play or top-up via our website. For more information, visit

Friends or Family Support: Ask a trusted friend or family member to top-up your meter for you. If your meter is outside, leave the meter box unlocked if it is safe to do so

Saving Energy: There are plenty of small changes you can make that will save energy and money. For more information, visit
