You can send us your meter reading in just a few easy steps. We can use your reading to make sure your bill is accurate and covers your usage. If you have an online account, you can also track your past readings and payment history.
Topping up your smart meter
If you’re a Smart Pay As You Go customer, you can top up online using a debit or credit card. You’ll need your Smart Pay As You Go top-up card to hand, as you’ll be asked for the long card number on the front.
Once you’ve topped up, it will automatically upload to the meter, but it can take up to 40 minutes.
Whether you're with us for your energy, broadband, or boiler cover, our online moving service helps make the process as smooth as possible – even if you've already moved home.
If you're moving into a home where SSE is already the supplier, we can help you with that too.
