You might build up more credit in your account in some months than in others. This is because we ask you to pay for your energy in advance by Direct Debit, and you won’t always use the same amount.
However, you can always ask for a refund, so long as you meet the conditions outlined further down this page. But it can often be better to keep your balance in credit.
You may also be entitled to a refund if you are in credit if you switch to another supplier. This is also detailed below.
2 reasons to keep credit in your account:
You’re saving for winter – building up extra credit in summer can mean no big bills when you use more energy in wintertime.
If you get a refund and then your account goes into debt (or looks like it could), we may need to increase your Direct Debit.
When can you get a refund?
Before you get started, here are a couple of things to check if you are currently on supply with Together Energy:
Your account must be more than 90 days old and have an active Direct Debit.
You can’t have any other refund requests already pending.
You must have enough money in your account to cover the value of 2 Direct Debit payments during the months of September to February and one Direct Debit payment during the months of March to August. We will only refund balances surplus to this (to protect your account from going into debt).
If that’s all okay, there are a few things relating to your meter readings and statements that also need to happen before you can request a refund:
You must have submitted a meter reading (for all fuels on the account) in the last 28 days.
You’ll also need to have received a statement since that meter reading was taken, with the reading included on it.
Lastly, if you’ve got a traditional meter and you’re requesting a refund that totals more than £599 over the last 3 months:
We may request that you take photos which clearly show the meter reading and meter serial number, then send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once you’ve confirmed that your refund request meets all the conditions above, you’ll be able to apply for a refund.
How and when you’ll get your refund:
You’ll usually get your refund within 10 working days of asking.
We’ll pay it into the bank account you use for your Direct Debit.
If there are any problems, we’ll be in touch.
If you’re switching to a different energy company:
As soon as we’ve had your final meter readings from your new supplier, we will generate your final statement, which we will upload to your customer portal in 6 weeks*.
If your account is in credit, your refund will be with you in 10 working days of you receiving your final statement.
It will be returned to the bank account you used to make Direct Debit payments.
If you’re moving to a new home:
Give us your closing readings and the details of whoever’s taking over.
Let us know your new details, in case we need to get in touch.
If your account is in credit, we’ll get a refund to you within 10 working days of your final bill. Again, if you’ve got a traditional meter and you’re requesting a refund that totals more than £599 over the last 3 months, we may request that you take photos which clearly show the meter reading and meter serial number, then send them to us at email@example.com. Once you’ve confirmed that your refund request meets all the conditions above, you’ll be able to apply for a refund.
It will be returned to the bank account you used to make Direct Debit payments*.
*Please note that, if you fail to provide your new supplier an opening meter reading (which they then provide us as your closing meter reading with Together Energy) we will be unable to issue any refund. It is important for the successful closure of your account that you provide this meter reading.
