Why am I on Pay-as-you-go (PAYG)?

  • Updated

Pre-payment or pay-as-you-go (PAYG) meters are an effective way to manage budgets and monitor your consumption. They have been created and installed for the sole reason of helping you manage your utility costs and aid in the cost of living. There are several advantages of using a PAYG meter:

  • No surprise bills – You will never receive a bill from us if you have a PAYG meter, as payment is always made in advance. This means that you won’t receive unexpected bills that would be harder to budget for.
  • You are in full control of how much and how often you top up.
  • You don’t have to worry about building up a debt, as you purchase the energy before you use it, making you more aware of your running energy costs.
  • You can build up a credit over the summer months to help pay for the winter months.
