Set up EvenPay direct debit
We know you’ve got a lot going on, that’s why we’ve made managing your energy bill, and your budget, easier than ever.
Rather than paying a seasonal bill, with EvenPay your annual energy bill is smoothed over smaller fortnightly or monthly automatic payments, to make them more manageable and predictable. Every six months we’ll recalculate your payment amount based on your usage and may adjust your deductions to ensure you’re only paying for the energy you use.
It just takes a just a couple of minutes to set up.
Keep track of your correspondence, and reduce paper, by updating your communication preferences to email.
By going paperless you’ll get your bills, and any other important information, instantly delivered straight to your inbox so it’s all in the one place.

It’s as easy as that.
