What is an MPRN (Gas) and how can I find it?

A Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) is a 10 digit number unique to your property and is usually found on your gas bill. The number also assists your gas supplier to identify your property and provide information on your account. You can find your MPRN, and who your gas transporter is at www.findmysupplier.energy

What is an MPAN (Electricity) and how can I find it?

The Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) is a 21 digit number unique to your property and can be found on your electricity bill. All ESP MPANs begin with 25. The number assists your electricity supplier to identify your property and provide information on your account.

What is a Meter Serial Number and how can I find it?

The meter serial number is unique to each individual gas or electricity meter. The meter serial number can be found on the meter near the display.

Who do I contact if my gas meter needs exchanging/testing?

You need to contact your gas supplier who will issue a request to the meter operator to carry out the works.

I have a question about my bill.

ESP does not sell gas or electricity, but ensures the energy makes it to your property in a safe and efficient manner. The companies that sell you gas and electricity are called Suppliers. You should contact your supplier if you have any query about your bill, meter reading, or getting a smart meter. You can find your supplier’s telephone number on your bill or statement.

How can I find out who supplies my gas or electricity?

ESP will only be able to advise you who your gas or electricity supplier is if we own the gas or electricity network you are connected to. Please have your Meter Serial Number to hand (this can be found on your meter).

I wish to carry out work to a meter or service pipe. How do I go about this?

If you are an existing ESP customer and require your gas meter or service to be moved due to building works being undertaken, please download our Service Diversion Enquiry Form. Once completed please post this to our main office or email a scanned copy to meterworks@espug.com.

I have received a defect notice what action should I take?

A defect notice is issued if a defect has been identified on your meter installation. The defect notice will suggest the remedial action to be undertaken by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer (visit www.gassaferegister.co.uk to locate a local engineer).

Gas Safe will be able to advise you what action should be taken to resolve the defect; their details can be found on the back of the notice.

I have lost my gas card, what should I do?

You can obtain a new gas card from your local Pay Point. Alternatively, you should contact your gas supplier directly to order a new card.

Why isn't my full top up showing on my meter?

If the amount you have topped up is not showing in full on your meter it may be that you have used your emergency credit or you have an outstanding balance to pay off. If this is the case, an amount may be taken from your top up. If you are still concerned, please contact your supplier.

I have a pay as you go meter and have no gas, what should I do?

Contact your gas supplier immediately and inform them that you are off supply. They will pass all the relevant details to the meter operator who will then ensure an engineer attends.

An engineer didn't turn up to carry out work at my property, what do I do?

Please contact us. If this is in relation to an emergency call-out, we will follow up to ensure an engineer is on the way. If this is a non-emergency issue, then we’ll re-plan a new date for the works.

How do I get a Smart Meter?

Please get in touch with your gas or electricity supplier to discuss installation of a smart meter.
