Credit / Post-Pay Customers
What is my tenant reference?
This is generated automatically once your account is created. This information can be provided upon request, or alternatively you can find this written in the green strip at the top of every bill.
How will I know if my direct debit is set up?
Upon receipt of your direct debit mandate, you will receive written confirmation in a letter in return confirming the set-up of your account. You can also contact billing and bureau team personally to request this information.
My bill isn’t reflecting the payment I have made
Often the issue is that the bill was produced before the payment was received. Please note that although the payment may have left your bank account, it can take 5 working days before WilSon Energy Ltd receive this money. Once the payment is received, this will be allocated to your account and reflected in the next bill.
The reference details may not be written correctly, and without this information, we’re unable to be allocated the received payment towards the relevant account.
If you would like to discuss this further, please contact our billing and bureau team.
I want to send in a cheque, where do I write my reference?
Please write your tenant reference, or property address on the back of the cheque.
I can’t pay my bill on time

I don’t understand something written on my bill
All bills are created according to each individual account. We can help explain the details on your bill if you contact the billing and bureau team by telephone, email or post.
My meter reads are too high
On the rare occasion we do not have accurate meter readings, these can be based on estimations which are calculated using your previous consumption data.
Non-automated meter readings:
These meter readings are sent to us from various sources such as your management companies, the concierge or our engineers may attend to manually download this data.
Automated meter readings:
Your property has been fitted with a series of meters which record the amount of energy consumed. The information recorded by the heat meters is transmitted and recorded on a central data collection unit. WilSon Energy Ltd are responsible for the collection of that data. This system ensures you are only invoiced for the amount of energy you consume based on actual readings.
I want to change to Pay As You Go
We are instructed by your management company to send bills to your property. To change your account to PAYG we must receive written confirmation from your management company or landlord that this is permitted (in some instances this may not be possible). Following this you are required to complete a Pay Mode Change Form which can be found in the Customer Portal.
I have never received a bill
You may not be registered as living at the property in most instances. This is done by your landlord or management company who must complete a Tenant Registration Document.
Do we have your correct address?
I pay another provider for my heat and hot water
We have been appointed by your management company as the billing provided for your heating and hot water supply. Please ensure to check the utility you are paying to the other providers don’t state another utility such as cold/waste water or electricity.
I want to make a complaint
Our advisor looks to resolve the complaint at the time of receiving upon first contact. If this cannot be fully resolved to your satisfaction, this will be escalated to the appropriate team leader. We encourage all formal complaints to be in a written format. We aim to resolve the complaint within 21 working days, and if more time is required, they will agree this with you and keep you informed of progress.
Should resolving your complaint to your satisfaction be unachievable, we will make the final decision for a “deadlock” and the correspondence will be issued to you.
