Level Pay

What is level pay?

Level Pay is a payment method that helps smooth your electricity costs across the year.

You'll pay a monthly amount based on your previous year's electricity usage and pay by Direct Debit. It's that simple.


How does Level Pay work?

We take the electricity usage of your home over the last 12 months and apply our current prices to calculate an annual bill. We then divide by 12 to create a monthly payment amount which is paid by Direct Debit.

If you're not sure how much electricity you use every year, don't worry – we'll help you estimate it just by answering a few short questions about your home when you sign up.

Yes, you'll still receive a bill as normal every two months online or in the post. We'll continue to send you your bill so that you can see how much electricity you have used, what it costs, the balance on your account and what your next payments are.


Will I pay the same as last year?

Annually we review what you've paid and used over the last twelve months to make sure there has been no over or under payment.

Following this annual review, if there's a balance of less that €120, it will be carried over into the next year and used to adjust the monthly payment amount for the next year.

If you've in excess of €120 credit, this can be refunded, however if there's a debt, we will need to recover this outstanding amount.


What happens if there is a balance owed or owing at the end of the year?

Following an annual review, if there's a balance of less that €120, it will be carried over into the next year and used to adjust the monthly payment amount for the next year.

If you've in excess of €120 credit, this can be refunded if you contact us to request a refund. We just need to ensure we have an actual meter reading.

Please note that if there is a debt on your account then we will need to recover this outstanding amount.
