Bills and meter readings
There’s lots of information available on how to read your meter if that’s what your query is about. If it’s not or you simply want to make a payment or submit a meter read quickly, then call Ecotricity’s 24 hour automated payment line: 01453 488101.
Simply type in the digits and letters of your meter reading into the keypad of your mobile phone or landline.
Selectra called this automated payment line and we can confirm that it is indeed very simple and quick when you follow their instructions, step by step.
If you thought that was quick, it’s even quicker to do this online! For that, you need to register for an online Ecotricity account. You only need to do this once and it takes only a few minutes.
Switching to Ecotricity
You’ve been with another supplier but you’ve been won over by Ecotricity’s green credentials and prices. You’ve found out that switching supplier is easy and now you want to switch to Ecotricity? Good news. They have a dedicated team to take care of this for you.
However it's very possible that you'll be kept on the phone for details that may not be needed to get you switched. This happens to be one of the factors that shaped Ecotricity reviews published by its customers on review sites such as Truspilot. Selectra has many years of experience in getting only the necessary information suppliers need to complete the switch process. That way you can change your supplier quickly, with no fuss.
Your business could do with going green while boasting about the eco-friendly initiatives it will be contributing to. You know that switching business tariffs is easy, but you want to speak to someone from Ecotricity who deals with business customers, not domestic ones. Is there a separate channel for this? Yes, there is.

IMPORTANT: FiT is no longer accepting new applicants. If you were planning on taking advantage of Feed in Tariffs, be aware that the scheme stopped accepting new applicants as of March 2019. That means that no new households will be able to receive FiT’s discounted rates. Households already receiving FiT will see no change in their benefits.
Whether you've discovered an odd smell of gas in your home or there's a power cut, get your emergency resolved immediately by contacting the right person.
Follow these steps in this order:
STEP 1: Call the National Gas Service Emergency Line at 0800 111 999. But don't call from a mobile as this may ignite a spark. Go outside or use a neighbour's phone.
STEP 2: Turn off your gas supply. Find the gas emergency control valve in your home and turn the handle by a quarter. You’ll know you’ve turned it off when the ridged line on the spindle is across the pipe.
STEP 3: Open all windows and doors to let air circulate the rooms.
STEP 4: Get out of your home and stand somewhere in a safe place until the gas engineer arrives.
IMPORTANTNever light any incendiary device, strike matches or do anything that could cause ignition.

Electricity power cut?
If you suspect an electricity power cut in your home, check whether your neighbours have lost power too. If this is the case, you should contact your Regional Distribution Company directly.
