Understanding your energy bills and payment options
How to read your meter
Your meter tells us how much electricity or gas you’ve used and helps us to give you accurate energy bills. Reading your meter is easy once you know how. Use our simple instructions to find out how your meter works.
What makes up your bill?
When you receive your energy bill, only around half of it pays for the energy itself – known as wholesale costs. The rest covers delivering energy to your home, government schemes such as smart meters, and keeping your account running smoothly.
Peace of mind with Pay As You Go
EDF Energy's Pay As You Go lets you keep control of your energy costs. A prepayment meter allows you to pay for your gas and electricity as you use it, so there are no meter readings or bills.
