We think an important part of gaining control over your energy usage is fully understanding your bill. We have the most detailed bills in the industry and are in regular consultation with the consumer group Which? to make sure our bills are simple, and easy to understand.
The bill images below are examples and your actual bill details may vary.
Account and bill details
Your account number is here. This will be useful if you need to log into your account or make a payment.
The overview of your bill will show the balance on your previous bill, any payments we have received since and the charges on this bill.
The last row shows your updated account balance.
This will be slightly different depending on the way you pay your bill:
- If you pay by a monthly Direct Debit, this shows your monthly payment amount and date.
- If you pay by variable Direct Debit, this shows the amount and date of the next payment.
- If you don’t pay by Direct Debit, you’ll see the amount due and due date.
Your bill will also tell you if we have billed you to actual or estimated reads.
