What makes BES different?
The BES gas budget plan payment scheme (BPP) is offered to all customers with an AQ below 293,000 KWh (above which a monthly meter read is required by the industry). The budget plan simply divides predicted consumption by 12 to give you a monthly amount. The predicted consumption is called the AQ and is derived from what the industry holds for your meter, based on historical consumption. This is recalculated and updated once a year to reflect variations in consumption patterns. Your monthly Direct Debit amount will be dictated by this calculation.
BES offer the following plans:
Why should this interest me? This is really a precaution, in-case you’re to be caught out of contract you need to know what you’re in for. This will help you be prepared and be more alert to when your contract is coming to an end.

BES offer 3 simple ways to submit your meter readings:
All BES electricity contracts offer a free of charge SMART meter to be installed on sites where possible. A SMART meter is designed to provide BES with accurate, regular information about your energy usage, allowing BES to provide more accurate invoices and reduce the impacts of estimated invoices for long periods.
Unfortunately for now the only option of payment with BES is Direct Debit, this is easily set up either over the phone or through their online mandate.
For BES to close your account and send a final invoice they require an up to date meter reading and forwarding address to send the final invoice. They may request lease agreements or other documents prior to processing a change of tenancy. If you know the details of the new tenants taking over the premises please let them know.
If you are moving to new premises and want to continue being supplied by BES they can arrange a low-cost quote to continue your plan with them.
