Energy Supplier Information

Energy Supplier Information


We would also like to provide you with some information to help support you with your energy suppliers during this time.

General advice is:

Tell your supplier if you can’t get to a shop to top up because you’re ill with coronavirus or following guidance to ‘self-isolate’. You’ll find their contact details on their website or on your bill.

They’ll try to help you find other ways to keep your energy supply connected. For example: 

let someone else top up for you

add funds to your account

send you a pre-loaded top-up card


Citizens Advice website says: You’ll need to pay back any credit your supplier gives you - ask them when and how you’ll need to do this.


For Switch2 – register for online payments. If unable, a one off credit of £20 will be added to accounts

Great North Energy – current emergency credit is £5 but they’re considering increasing it.


For the following suppliers contact them and advise that  you are self-isolating and they will send out 2 weeks’ worth of gas/electricity or top up if on a smart meter
