SmoothPay lets you side step unexpected spikes by evening out your payments across the whole year. You can pay weekly, fortnightly or monthly – whatever works for you. It’s a great way to make sure next winter's not quite so sweary.

Smooth out your payments

Ins & Outs

  • We work out your energy use across a year, then divide it into equal amounts based on how often you want to pay
  • You'll get a monthly bill to keep track of it all
  • On the agreed day we deduct the amount from your account by direct debit. Because months aren't neat and tidy, we can't put through your monthly payment on the 29th, 30th or 31st. But there are still plenty of days to choose from.
  • Every so often we check if it's all on track and that your usage is in line with your payments. If we need to adjust it, we'll give you at least 10 days' notice.
