1. Ways to help you reduce the COST of your energy bills

  • ​Firstly, it’s important to check you’re on the right tariff
  • Smart meters are a great way to track how much energy you're using, and with our free Energy Hub, we offer more insight to help you change your energy habits
  • Head to our energy efficiency advice centre to access tips and advice on reducing your energy usage, which can help you save money
  • Making savings through insulating your home properly. Did you know you could save up to £870 per year on energy bills by installing cavity and loft insulation in your home?(1) You could be eligible for insulation through our Great British Insulation Scheme

Top Tip: Turn the heating flow temperature down
Without lowering your home's temperature, turning the flow temperature down on your combi boiler from 80℃ to 60℃, you can save up to £95.22 per year. This isn't suitable for all systems, so find out more with our flow temperature guide.

2. Understanding AFFORDABILITY and helping with budgeting advice

​We know it can be difficult to juggle. That's why we've put the best free budgeting sites here for you.

3. Offering you a RESOLUTION based on your individual circumstances​

We understand that paying for energy can sometimes be challenging. That's why we offer various payment options to make the process easier and more convenient for you.

  • ​If you've had a smart meter installed already, you can easily switch it to Pay As You Go, which may help you budget. Take control by seeing how much you are spending and set up regular top-up amounts
  • If you need more time to pay your bill, get in touch, and we can set up an affordable repayment plan based on your circumstances
  • Do you currently pay a big bill every three months? Instead, you may find paying a smaller, more manageable amount every month easier. It's quick and easy to change your payment method online: Log into MyAccount and select 'Payment Method Change’.
  • You could save money if you pay by Direct Debit. It's easy to change your payment method in MyAccount
