Where do I top up my pre-payment card for gas and electric if the shop is shut?

Get in touch with your supplier as there are ways for them to upload to your meter or to send a pre-loaded card. They also advise that you open the door on your meter if it is outside, so that someone could come and top it up.  For more detailed information from Citizens Advice, please click here.
