Customers on this tariff will receive a month’s notice in advance of any change in tariff prices.

Meter readings and paying your bill
The most common way to pay your Good Energy bills is by Direct Debit. Once set up, the supplier will send you confirmation of the amount and date that the first Direct Debit payment will be collected. You will be notified 10 working days in advance of your account being debited.
Gas and electricity meters help you keep tabs on your energy usage and the amount you pay for your supply. We recommend that you submit a meter reading about one week before your bill is due in order to get the most accurate bills possible.
Keep in mind that Good Energy provides a meter reading service only twice a year, where meter readers visit your home. This means that at all other times, your usage is estimated.
The good thing is, Good Energy has made submitting your meter reading easy. You can do so:
- Over the phone by calling 0800 254 0000.
- Through your online account.
- Via the Good Energy app or website.
