When topping up for the first time in a while, your gas meter will take some of the credit in order to pay off the standing charge debt you've accumulated.
Even when you're not using your meter, you're still charged a standing charge each day. This is the charge for having a meter connection.
You’re charged a daily standing charge, even when you’re not using your meter. This is the charge for having a meter connection and is usually around 30p per day, but you can find the exact standing charge in your Welcome Pack.
We’ll only ever take up to 30% of a top up to pay off this debt, meaning you’ll always have at least 70% of each top up to pay for your usage.
