How is my monthly direct debit payment calculated?
Your Direct Debit agreement is designed to bring your account to a zero balance each calendar year after your start date, when we carry out an annual review of your account. Customers typically build up credit in the summer to help cover their heavier winter consumption. However, depending on how much energy you use, there is sometimes not enough credit on the account to ensure you arrive at a zero balance. We check each time a reconciliation is produced to make sure that your payments are on target to achieve a zero balance. If a change is required, up or down, then we will let you know in writing before any change occurs.

How do I get a refund of my credit balance?
If you pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit, your account balance is likely to be in credit for certain periods during the year. If your account is in credit and based on actual, not estimated readings, you can request this back at any time. However, if you choose to do this, you may not have any credit to use up during the winter months when you're likely to use a lot more energy. As a result, your remaining Direct Debit payments would probably need to increase, so we recommend that you wait until your Annual Review. To request a refund, call 0845 226 2653. Please make sure you have your account number and an up to date meter reading to hand.
What happens if the amount of energy I use changes?
If the energy you use changes then we'll increase or decrease your payments to match. We'll let you know of any changes before taking any money from your bank.
