What is a prevention agreement?
If your electricity supply is due to be disconnected soon and you want to prevent this from happening, you’ll receive from us an offer of a prevention agreement. This will ensure that you remain connected, while agreeing to make advance payments and clear your outstanding debts free of interest and in instalments.
