Submit a meter reading
Submitting meter readings to your energy provider is an extremely important task in order to receive accurate bills, meaning you only pay for the energy you use. You’ll likely be asked for readings monthly, but where do you submit them?
Luckily, there are a few different ways you can manually submit your meter readings to Opus Energy:
- Through your online account
- Call 0843 227 2377
- Email email@example.com
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Automatic meter readings!
Did you know that with a smart meter you’ll never have to submit a meter reading again! 100% accurate bills, all the time. Give us a call to find out more about automatic meter readings.
Alternatively, you could change to a smart meter, which will send your readings automatically at regular intervals. This will usually be half-hourly for the most accurate readings, but you can also change it to daily or even weekly.
If your business is eligible for a smart meter, Opus Energy should contact you about having one installed or you can use the button below to register your interest.

There are a few ways to pay your energy bills with Opus Energy:
- Through your online account

What to do if you’re struggling to pay
Running a business can be tough – unexpected costs can arise or profits can fall immensely. If this happens, you might be in a position where you can’t afford to pay your energy bills.
The first thing you should do if you’re struggling to pay is to call Opus Energy on 01604 797306 and talk about what they can do to help. This may include setting up a payment plan or another credit solution. Talking to your provider is the best way to ensure your energy supply isn’t cut off due to overdue payments.
If you think you might need external help, you can talk to Business Debtline, a charity set up to give advice to businesses in the same situation and offer a lot of information on how to deal with your business debts.
Moving into a new premises
Set your utilities up in your new home!
Let us set everything up for you and leave you with one less thing to think about when moving house! Give us a call now, sit back and let us do the work.
Whether you’re expanding or simply moving premises, you’ll have to let your energy provider know so that they can move your supply to the new site.
If you’re moving in, moving out, or setting up a new tenant account, you’ll have to fill out the relevant form to give Opus Energy more information on your move. You can find all of these forms online.
If you have any questions about moving, you can email COTEnquiry@opusenergy.com or call 01604 673 155.
If you’re a broker or consultant and your client is moving premises, you’ll also need to send a signed Letter of Authority. Your client might also need to be contacted directly on some matters, but you’ll be able to liaise with Opus Energy about most things.
Switch to Opus Energy
If you want to switch to Opus Energy, you can get a quote online or by calling 01604 656 534. They’ll ask you a little bit about your business and energy usage to get an idea of what you’re looking for. Then, you can work together to come up with a tariff tailored to your business and get your personalised quote. Bear in mind that if you agreeing over the phone is binding to the new contract.
Once you’ve decided you’re ready to switch, you’ll have to contact your current supplier to cancel your contract and let them know you’re switching otherwise they could block the switch from happening.
You’ll have to send:
- A termination letter including your business’ letterheaded paper
- Your business’ name and address
- Notice that you want to end your contract
- Your contract number and renewal date
- Your MPAN and/or MPRN
- Supply address
- A signature from the business owner or representative
Opus Energy will then work with your supplier to switch your supply and you’ll receive a welcome pack when it’s finalised.
How to report a power cut or gas leak
Did you know…
Your energy supplier isn’t responsible for dealing with power cuts or anything electrical or gas-related other than the billing of your usage. Your distribution network operator is responsible for the maintenance and operation of the electric and gas networks up and down the country.
When you have a power cut, you’ll have to get in touch with your DNO. If you don’t know who that is, you can call the dedicated power cut line on 105. Your DNO is responsible for fixing the problem and getting you back on supply and they can also give you updates on the situation if it’s already been reported.
If you’ve had a gas leak, you should call the National Gas Helpline on 0800 111 999. Open all the windows and doors and try to get everyone out of the building for some fresh air.
If you think it might be a carbon monoxide leak, you should also call a GP to get tested for carbon monoxide poisoning, even if you’re feeling fine. If anyone does start to feel unwell AT ALL, you should call 999.
How to download the app
If you’re an Opus Energy customer with up to 10 SMETS2 smart meters, you can use the My Smart Energy app. The app is extremely useful when it comes to taking control of your energy usage and supply. It connects to your smart meter to show your business’ energy usage either in kWh or monetary values.
Understanding more about your energy use can help you see where you can cut back to save money and energy. Encourage your employees to get involved and you could see extreme savings. Not only for your business but also for improving your carbon footprint and help the environment (a great selling point).
The app is compatible with devices using Android 5.0 and above or iOS 10.0 and above.
