Type of Direct Debit

Variable Direct Debit

A variable Direct Debit would mean you only pay for the energy you use. If you provide us with regular meter readings, you won't be subject to estimated bills and will be confident that you're always up to date with your account. If you have a smart meter, it will automatically send meter readings.

Fixed Direct Debit

A fixed Direct Debit may suit your business better. This way you can spread your payments across the year releasing some of the pressure on your finances over the winter months, and letting you budget based on your regular outgoings.

We work out your average monthly amount, taking into consideration your yearly energy fluctuations, and you chose the date on which your Direct Debit is collected every month to suit your cash flow.

We'll also review your payments regularly to keep them up to date with your meter readings, avoiding any nasty surprises when the bill is received.  You can avoid estimates bills by submitting regular meter readings.
