Payment of Bills
We will send you quarterly bills after requesting by letter that you send us a meter reading. We will plan to read your meter about once a year. Some of these bills may therefore be estimated. Sending in your own reading will help us provide you with an accurate statement of account. Readings can be sent into our main offices by simply completing the bottom of our letter and posting it to our Freepost address. Alternatively you may call or fax us free on one of our freephone numbers or submit them over the Internet www.electricity.gg. This can also be done following the receipt of an estimated account.
If you are unable to read your electricity meter we will be happy to send you a copy of our leaflet "HELP YOURSELF TO USE ELECTRICITY WISELY" which, together with useful facts on what uses how much electricity, will explain how to read your meter correctly. If you are still unable to read your meter we will agree an appointment with you for us to take a meter reading.
Your bill will be made up of a standing charge and the units used as calculated from the meter reading. For full details of our charges please ask us to send you our tariff sheet.
If you pay your bill after it arrives, we allow 21 days credit from the date on the bill. However, should you fall behind and pay your accounts late we may ask for security against future bills.
If you are having difficulty paying your bill you may wish to consider an alternative method of payment from the list below or contact one of our Credit Controllers who will be pleased to discuss any proposals you may have.
