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 at:

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 are able to 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 0330 008 2138.

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 to hand of all friends and relatives within the area who can top up for you and if possible when topping up your meter, we advise that you try to top up more than what you normally would, where possible.

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 require additional support and reassurance during this time. Many customers who have been financially impacted or 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.
