Energy bills and prepayment meters
Do you know your rights when discussing debts with your energy supplier? Are you worried about the prospect of being forced to have a prepayment meter installed?
Your gas or electricity supplier might tell you they’re going to move you to prepayment if you owe them money. If your supplier is trying to move you to prepayment, they must follow rules set by the energy regulator, Ofgem. Read this guide from Citizens Advice which explains when you can refuse to have a prepayment meter installed, how to complain if you think you are being treated unfairly, and how to get extra help.
