We’ve been keeping an eye on the government’s website for Coronavirus details. This page will show updated information on the situation. If you do require any further advice, please contact our team on 0330 0414 902 or email us at You can also contact us on live chat from 10am-7pm Monday to Friday.

How do I top up my smart meter if I am self-isolating?
All smart meter customers can top up via the Nabuh Energy app. This is available in all app stores, or you can top up via the website here.

We advise all smart meter customers to consider texting a close friend or relative with your gas and electric top up card numbers so they can top up at a store for you. You can find these numbers on your top up cards. You can also call our automated top up line on 0330 0082 138.

How do I top up my traditional meter if I am self-isolating?
If your meter is outside, leave your meter box unlocked so that someone else can top up on your behalf (if it is safe to do so).

Have a list close by of all friends and relatives within the area who can top up for you. If possible when topping up your meter, we advise that you try to top up more than you normally would.

I’m a direct debit customer. Should I be worried about my supply?
No. As a direct debit customer, you have a constant supply of energy to the property and will not go off supply. Please continue to supply meter readings if you have traditional meters, and to ensure your monthly direct debit remains active. You will still receive bills as normal.

I am unable to work due to COVID-19 and worried about paying my energy bills. What can I do?
We recognise and support customers who need additional support and reassurance during this time. Customers who have been financially impacted and those that are in vulnerable circumstances should rest assured that we are committed to ensuring that their energy supply remains uninterrupted.

With this in mind, we are continuing to work alongside current Government guidelines.
In these circumstances, it is important that you contact our customer services department on 0330 0414 902 to discuss your account.

I have a visit booked to have a meter fitted. Can I change the date?
Yes. Please contact our customer service team on 0330 0414 902.

How are you making sure your engineers are protected and do not spread the virus to customers?
As well as following government guidelines on self-isolating, engineers have additional Personal Protection Equipment such as masks, disposable gloves, safety glasses and disposable shoe/boot covers. They also have additional hygiene products including antibacterial wipes and hand sanitiser. There are new procedures to reduce risk in place. For example, our engineers will not pass handheld devices to customers and will instead establish that engineers can sign on your behalf.

I have been told to self-isolate – what do I do about my engineer visit?
We will call you to ask relevant questions two days before, so please let us know if you are self-isolating. Once we receive this contact, we are able to cancel your engineer visit. You can call 14 days after to reschedule.

My appointment was cancelled – when can I rebook?
It will be safe to re-book 14 days after initial symptoms started. Please call 0330 0414 902 to reschedule.
