Paying your energy bill your way
As an energy supplier who puts our members first, we have lots of different ways that you can pay for your gas and electricity. The easiest way is via a monthly direct debit as your payments will come out automatically, but there are other options available, as outlined below.
Remember, if you’re having trouble paying your bills, we’re here to support you however we can. Simply get in touch with the Utility Point team to have a chat about your options.
