What is a standing charge?

This is a charge for each day you’re connected to the network. It pays for maintaining your supply and isn’t related to the amount of gas and electricity you use. So even if you don’t use any electricity, you still need to pay the standing charge for that day. If you don’t have enough credit to cover it, or you’re using your emergency credit, you’ll need to pay it back next time you top up your meter.
