What to do if your business is affected by COVID-19
As the situation around coronavirus continues to evolve, we are doing everything we can to ensure your energy supplies are not affected.
We are keeping a close watch on the UK Government's latest advice on coronavirus, and will keep this page updated should the situation or our approach change.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding COVID-19, please visit Coronavirus UK Government Response for regular updates.
If you’re in need of additional support from us, you can contact us. It might take a little while to answer if you call, but we’ll make sure you speak to a member of our team.

Will there be a buffer for delayed payments delayed if funding issues arise?
If you have been directly impacted by COVID-19 and you are unable to access government support or find alternative funding to help pay your energy bills, then please contact us so we can assess your account.
