My account is in credit, why should I increase my payments?

At Bulb your payments stay the same throughout the year. This means you build up credit over the summer and use it during the winter when you’re using more energy.

Just before winter, your account should have enough credit to see you through the colder months. And your payments should be high enough to ensure you start building up credit again in the spring.

As our tariff is variable, our prices can go up and down according to the true cost of energy. In September this year, the wholesale cost of energy increased. As a result, we had to increase our prices too. This means, even accounts in credit may have to increase their payments to ensure they have enough additional credit in their account to cover the colder months this time next year.

The best way to make sure you’re paying the right amount is by entering regular meter readings into your account. Find out how to submit a meter reading, or how to read your meter.
