How to get emergency credit?

Each British Gas gas and electricity meter has £5 of Emergency Credit built in for when you run out of gas or electricity and you are unable to top up. To access your Emergency Credit you must have the key or card in the meter. You'll need to pay back the Emergency Credit next time you top up, and any remainder will be put on as credit. If you use all your Emergency Credit and don't top up to replace it, you may not have an energy supply until you have repaid it. How to get emergency credit (PDF 113KB)
