Pay As You GoPayments and topping upHelp with my meterPay As You Go Support

If I’ve been disconnected because my credit ran out, how do I reconnect my supply again after I top up?

Once you’ve topped up enough to bring your balance above zero, you can reconnect your meter. Before reconnecting your gas supply, please make sure all gas appliances are switched off at the plug or electrical supply for safety.

If you have a traditional electricity meter

To get your power back once you’ve topped up, put your payment key into the meter. Your power will come back on automatically. If it doesn’t, or there’s a message on your meter, please call us right away on 0330 175 9669.

If you have a traditional gas meter

To get your power back once you’ve topped up, put your payment card into the meter. The meter screen will prompt you to hold button A. The meter will then prompt you to release button A. This will turn the gas back on.
