Paying a fixed amount
Another reason to pay by Direct Debit is that you always pay a fixed amount each month – making it easier to budget. We agree this with you up front and you tell us which day of the month you’d like your Direct Debit to be paid. Your payments will be spread throughout the year, helping you avoid bigger bills over the winter.
Smoothing out the highs and lows
It’s normal for you to be in credit during the summer months when you use less energy. This in turn can be used towards the extra energy you use in the winter. So, whether it snows or shines, you should pay the same amount each month throughout the year. And if your payment needs to go either up or down, then we’ll tell you at your next account review.
You can forget the hassle
You don’t have to remember to pay your bill – going through all the bother of arranging to pay by cash or cheque. And you won’t have to join the queue at the bank or post office. Instead, an agreed amount will be taken from your account each month on the date of your choice. Modern life is hectic, paying by Direct Debit helps by removing unnecessary hassle.
If you choose to pay for your electricity/gas by making a fixed periodic direct debit payment then your payment amount will be reviewed from time to time to help ensure it is appropriate to your energy use. While we may review your payment more frequently in some circumstances, we will only usually review it once a year. This will be the case even where we receive meter readings or other relevant information more frequently. By choosing to pay in this way you agree to this.
With monthly Direct Debit you know exactly what you’ll pay for your energy every month of the year.
It’s better value too – because you pay a lower unit rate for the energy you use, compared to other payment methods.
