How does my pay as you go meter work?

( ratingratings)

If you have a Pay As You Go meter, you pay for your gas or electricity before you use it.

You top up credit onto a card or key and transfer this to your meter by inserting the card
or key.

With Pay As You Go Energy™, you have complete control over your spending. And at British Gas our Pay As You Go customers pay the same prices as those who receive bills*.
