Energy information for Dyers Court - Unipol administer the gas and electricity charges for your property monthly. The standard charge for is £58.00 per month*, with energy payments due on the 1st of each month, in addition to the rent.

Every 3 months, Unipol review energy usage (using meter readings), and will tell you if your flat has exceeded the monthly amount or if a refund of money is due to you. If you exceed the standard charge, you will need to pay the excess. We will adjust your standard charge amount if you are consistently using more energy than you pay for, or if you are using less energy than you pay for each month.

The monthly amount you are billed has been carefully set based on historic energy data at Dyers Court. The standard set monthly amount should allow you to budget more carefully, but until you have lived in the building for a while, you will not understand if you are exceeding or staying within this standard amount. 

Over the colder winter months we expect families to use more than the monthly billing amount but over the summer months you may use less. The logic behind this billing system is that you pay a regular average amount, then if you use less energy then your account builds up a credit. 

An example; if you pay £58.00 for standard charge for energy in August, September and October, but only use £50 worth of energy you will accrue a credit of £24.00 on your account (£8 for each month). If in November, if you then use £65.00 worth of energy, £7.00 of the credit will apply against your November usage. We use any credit on your account against any costs which exceed your monthly billing amount.
