How to top up your electricity prepayment meter (not smart)

Take you prepayment key to your nearest Payzone, PayPoint or Post Office outlet to top it up with credit. You can add anything from £1 up to £49 (whole pounds only).

Once you put your key back into your meter, you'll see the credit topped up.

Watch out for fraudsters on your doorstep
It's illegal to sell prepayment credit on the doorstep, but fraudsters posing as EDF might knock on your door.

Please don't buy from them, as it puts you at risk of losing money. Anyone caught using illegal credit will end up paying twice. Once to the doorstop seller, and again to the energy supplier for any energy used.
