Submit a meter reading
It’s important that you regularly submit your meter readings to make sure you receive accurate bills. If you don’t submit readings, you could be charged an estimated bill, which is often higher than it should be. However, it could also be lower than it should be, meaning you start racking up debit and an unexpected extra charge on your next accurate bill.
With Scottish Power, you can submit meter readings:
- Through your online account
- Through the YourEnergy app
- By calling the automated meter reading service on 0800 027 8000
- Automatically with a smart meter
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.
How to fix your Tonik Energy smart meter
Whether you have a Tonik Energy or Scottish Power smart meter, you can take advantage of some great features such as automatic meter readings and keeping track of your energy usage in both monetary terms and kWh. However, sometimes things can go wrong and you can lose some of these smart features. Luckily, these are normally an easy fix.
If your in-home display (IHD) is blank, it could be that it’s run out of battery. Luckily this is an easy fix: all you have to do is plug it back into the wall. The battery life of IHDs is quite short (roughly 4 hours) so, if this was the problem, it might be worth keeping it plugged in at all times.
If your IHD is beeping, it could be that it’s lost connection with your meter. Your meter should still send readings automatically, it’s only your IHD that isn’t working. To fix this, try and move it closer to your meter. If this isn’t possible, you might not be able to use the IHD to view your usage. However, you can view your usage through the YourEnergy app, just not in real-time.
If you have an older, first-generation smart meter (SMETS1), it could be that Scottish Power can’t connect to your meter, even if Tonik Energy could. This will put your smart meter in ‘dumb mode’ and you’ll lose all of your smart features. These meters are due an upgrade in the near future that will allow them to communicate more effectively over the SMETS2 network.
If you’re still having problems, you can call 0800 027 0072 or use the Scottish Power live chat option on their website or app.
Get a new top-up key/card
If you’ve lost or damaged your top-up key or card or your new Scottish Power ones haven’t arrived yet, you can easily get a replacement the same day.
To get a replacement the same day, all you need to do is contact Scottish Power, which you can do by live chat or through the app. They’ll give you a reference number which you can take to your local Payzone or Post Office where they’ll give you a new key/card.
If you’re happy to wait a bit longer, you can also email email@example.com or contact them through your online account.
Bear in mind that you might have to activate your electricity key or gas card before you can top it up. You can do this by putting your key into the meter for a few seconds.
Paying bills and topping up
Now you’re with Scottish Power, there are a few different ways you can pay your energy bill:
- Direct debit
- By card through your online account
- By card on the app
- Call 0800 001 5168
- Bank transfer (sort code: 83-07-06 account number: 00674713 using your Scottish Power account number as the reference)
If you have a prepayment meter, you can top up at your local Payzone or Post Office. You can top up any amount from £1.49 of electricity and £5.49 of gas. If you have a smart prepayment meter, you can also top up through your online account.

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.
Power cuts and gas leaks are something that needs to be seen to and sorted as soon as possible.
If you’ve had a power cut, you should call the dedicated power cut line on 105. They’ll put you through to your Distribution Network Operator (DNO) who is responsible for getting your power back on. If it’s already been reported, this number can give you updates on when the power will be back.
If you suspect a gas leak, you should call the National Gas Helpline on 0800 111 999. Open all of the doors and windows to let in some fresh air and turn off your gas supply and any gas-powered appliances.
If you think it might be a carbon monoxide leak, you should also get outside for some fresh air. Even if no one is feeling unwell, you should also call your doctor to be tested for carbon monoxide poisoning. If anyone is feeling unwell, call 999.
