Looking After our Vulnerable Customers

One of our key aims is to ensure Nabuh Energy provides an excellent service to all our customers. Some customers may require more help than others, we understand and want to make sure we can help.

If any of your households are within one of the following, the below services are available to you:

1) Of pensionable age; or

2) Chronically ill; or

3) Disabled; or

4) Under 5 years old

5) You are currently experiencing bereavement or any other issue which might make it more difficult than normal for you to communicate with us

6) You are currently experiencing financial issues which might mean you are finding it difficult to pay for your energy supply.

Additional assistance will be made to ensure all customer information is available to you in a variety of forms, this includes in less specific circumstances such as financial or other situations which may make times more difficult for you to interact.

Our Priority Services Register

As required, we keep a confidential register, also known as the Priority Services Record, keeping a record of those customers who require extra assistance. This means we can quickly identify and help where possible. We will ask if you wish to be added to the PSR when you first switch to us, or you can be added at a later date. This information is required to be shared with your local Electricity Network Operator and Gas Network operator so are also able to provide additional help if necessary, such as if there is work on your supply and the interruptions that can create.

You can ask to be added to our PSR at any time if you or anyone in your household is within one of the categories above, and we’ll add you temporarily if you’re in a situation which is more short term. We will remove you if you feel you do not need to be included, or do not fit within one of the above categories. If you wish to register yourself on our register, click here

We can arrange for someone to do quarterly readings, leaving you with a copy. If you are within the above categories this service is free of charge, otherwise, we will agree a cost before visiting the property.

Moving Your Meter

For those who pay in advance with a prepayment meter and are of pensionable age, disabled or chronically ill, but find it difficult to get to your meter, we can change position to enable you to access it more easily.

Gas Safety Checks

Safety checks are performed by a qualified person and will include checks on all gas appliances and fittings at the property.

If anyone in your household falls into one of the above categories, we will give you a free gas safety check if you ask for one and haven't had one carried out in the last 12 months if you are receiving a means-tested benefit. If you are not entitled to a free gas safety check you can use a qualified gas engineer to carry this out for you.

If you are a tenant this does not apply to you when your landlord is responsible for organising gas safety checks for the household.
