We are Data Energy, your Metering and Billing Agent. We have been specifically appointed by your Building Owner to raise and issue bills for the for energy and/or water you use. This guide will kick start your billing journey with us, ensuring you have all the tools in place to get the most out of your account.


Step 1: Let us know you’ve moved in

Let us know you’ve moved in within 30 days from completion / tenancy start date. You can do this be completing a Change of Leaseholder form (if you are the Leaseholder) or by having your Landlord / Letting Agent complete a Change of Tenancy form on your behalf if you are the Sub-tenant. This way we can register your details quickly and avoid any delays to you receiving your bills. Find out more about how the billing process works, here.


Step 2: Register for the Customer Portal

Our Customer Portal is a great way to stay control of your account. You can

  • View and monitor your energy consumption
  • Access copy bills, making payments
  • Request account statements and
  • Notify us of changes to your account

Registering is easy. You just need your unique PayPoint and Pin number, which you can find at the bottom right of your first bill.  It looks like this:
