9   Our rights to make changes to the services or these terms

9.1   We may make changes to these terms or the services we provide to you, including changing the prices and/or payment methods, unless we have agreed with you that we will not.

Any changes to the unit rates will be notified to you in advance in accordance with clauses 9.1 and 9.2.
9.6.1.2   If you choose our FLEX plan, you can terminate this tariff immediately at any time without incurring a termination fee by telling us that you wish to terminate.
9.6.1.3   We can change your plan by providing you with not less than 30 days advance notice.

9.6.2   SECURE plan:

9.6.2.1   With our SECURE plan, you will be charged for the services based on a fixed unit rate. This rate will be fixed for twelve months.

9.6.2.4   If your SECURE plan ends and if you have asked us for a new fixed rate plan, a new contract for the new price plan will come into existence between us and you on the date that your old contract ends. Our terms and conditions in force at that time will form the basis of the new contract – we will provide you copies of the new terms in advance.
9.6.2.5   If your SECURE plan ends and if you have not asked us for a new fixed rate plan then, unless the circumstances in clause 9.3 apply, we will automatically transfer you to the cheapest variable plan available for the meter type installed at the property and your payment method until you switch to a new supplier or you start a new fixed rate plan with us. We are required to do this under Ofgem’s rules.
9.6.2.6   If you are transferred to our cheapest variable plan then, unless the circumstances in clause 9.3 apply, you may be charged higher unit prices and standing charges, and these charges could change at any time – you will be notified of any such changes in accordance with clause 9.1, but clause 9.2 will not be applicable or available in such circumstances.

10   Price and payment

10.1   The price for the services and bills.

10.1.1   The price of the services will depend on how much gas or electricity (or both) you use and which tariff you are on. Your tariff will be the tariff you selected during the order process, the tariff you asked us to switch you to (where such a switch is permitted), the tariff you were switched to automatically after the end of a fixed term or the tariff you were switched to by us because, for example, you did not make payments when required to. Our tariffs are set out in more detail in clause 9 above.
10.1.2   We will calculate the price of the services by using the rates applicable to your tariff.
10.1.3   You agree to pay us for supply gas or electricity (or both) and for any other charges that apply (see clause 10.2 below).

10.2   Additional charges. We may charge you additional charges in the circumstances set out in clauses 10.2.1 – 10.2.6 inclusive:

10.4.1   You are responsible for paying our bills. Where there is more than one account holder, all of the account holders together are jointly and severally liable to pay our bills.
10.4.2   Joint and several liability allows us to enforce the obligations contained in these terms, in full, against all or any combination of the account holders.

10.6   What to do if you think our bill is wrong. If you think your bill is wrong, please contact us to tell us what you think is wrong and why, but you must pay the amount of the bill which you do not think is wrong. We will review our records, and if your bill is wrong, we will reissue our bill. If your bill is not wrong, you will be required to pay the full amount set out in the bill.
10.7   What happens if our bills are wrong and you have switched providers.

10.7.1   If after you have left us, we discover that our bills we wrong because, for example, you did not give us the right meter readings we will let you know that they were wrong and send you a new bill.
10.7.2   If you owe us money, you have to pay it by the date shown on the new bill we send you.
10.7.3   If you have overpaid, we will let you know and will pay you back the full amount by which you have overpaid (although we can use the amount to pay off any amount you owe us under another account you hold with us).

10.8   Previous suppliers. You will also be responsible for paying us any debts you owed to your previous gas or electricity supplier (or both) that are transferred to us.

10.9.2   If you do not pay for the services by the due date set out in our bill, we can change the ways in which we provide our services to you. For example, we can make you pay money on deposit with us as security before we supply you with services, make you use a prepayment meter (a meter where you pay for your gas or electricity in advance), temporarily suspend or permanently disconnect the supply of services to you (where permitted to do so by law) without your permission, or change the ways you pay our bills.

Please note that you may have to pay higher charges for gas and electricity through a prepayment meter because the tariffs you were previously on are not available or because you do not pay by Direct Debit anymore.
10.9.6   If you do not make any payment to us by the due date set out in our bills we may charge you interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of the Bank of England from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
10.9.7   If you have paid us a security deposit (as described in clause 10.9.2), we can use that to pay off any amounts you owe to us.

10.10   Refunds.

10.10.1   If we are required to give you a refund under these terms, you will need to submit meter readings for the property to us first if you do not have a smart meter.

10.10.3   You will usually receive your refund within 10 working days of your request for a refund being accepted, unless we have agreed otherwise with you.
10.10.4   We will make your refund using the method in which you pay your bills to us, unless we have agreed otherwise with you.

11.1.3.7   The supply of services has been stopped by us, the gas transporter, the network operator or any regulator (including Ofgem) and the terms of the licence granted to us by Ofgem mean we are not required to reconnect or continue to supply the property, for example where you have tampered with a meter at the property;
11.1.3.8   We are told by Ofgem, the gas transporter or the network operator to stop supplying the property;

14.1.1   Ofgem tells another supplier to supply gas and / or electricity to the property – in such circumstances we are only permitted to end the contract in respect of the fuel that Ofgem has told another supplier to supply – for example, if we are supplying gas and electricity to the property and Ofgem has told another supplier to supply gas to that property, we may end this contract in respect of the supply of gas to the property, but we will continue to supply the electricity to the property (subject to the terms conditions set out in these terms);
14.1.2   We lose our licence to supply the property;
14.1.3   You breach any of the terms of this contract and the breach is serious enough for us to decide to terminate the contract, for example, if you have tampered with a meter at the property.
14.1.4   We are unable to supply electricity to the property because the property is a “Green Deal” property. In such circumstances, this contract would remain in force in respect of any gas that we supply to the property or which we are due to commence supplying to the property (as appropriate).

14.2   We can end your contract in any circumstances by giving you at least 28 days’ notice.

15.1   We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us (subject to clauses 15.3 – 15.7 inclusive). If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.
15.2   When we are liable for damage to the property. If we are providing services in the property, we will make good any damage to the property caused by us while doing so.

Our maximum liability to you per claim or series of connected claims, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), for breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with these terms or the supply of services shall be limited £10,000 (ten thousand pounds). Claims are considered connected when they arise from the same event or situation.
15.4   Where the gas transporter or network operator caused you damage. If we are liable for loss or damage caused by a gas transporter or network operator, our liability (including for negligence and breach of statutory duty) is limited to the amount we are entitled to recover from them on your behalf.
15.5   We are not liable for business losses. We only supply gas and electricity domestic and private use. If you use the services for any commercial or business purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of goodwill, loss of contracts, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
15.6   We do not guarantee that the supply of services will be uninterrupted.
15.7   We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; and for acting fraudulently.
