The current Deposit for Tariff 3 – Domestic is £34.50. The Deposits for all other Tariffs, are calculated either on historical usage or information provided by your Electrical Contractor, as explained below.

a. Based on historical usage,

If you are due to occupy premises where Electricity has been supplied in the past, and your use of such premises will remain as that of the previous occupiers, then we will calculate your Deposit based on an average Electricity Consumption of the previous occupier, over a six month period.

b. Based on information provided by your Electrical Contractor.

If you are occupying new premises, and/or such premises have never been used for your intended use, we will then require details of your load requirements, which can be obtained from your Electrical Contractor, so that we can accurately calculate your Deposit.

The Deposit charged is not final. The Gibraltar Electricity Authority reserves the right to review the Deposit charged as stipulated within the Gibraltar Electricity Authority Act 2003. Customers may also request that their Deposit be reviewed, by contacting us on applications@gea.gi.

The Customer can seek a refund of their Deposit upon submission of their Application Form for Disconnection of Electricity Supply. The Deposit paid will be refunded by AquaGib Limited, upon the Customer’s request, so long as the final Electricity Bill has been issued, and there is a zero balance on the respective Electricity Account.

a. Energy?
One Unit of Electricity is 1 kilowatt hour.

b. Monetary? The monetary value of a Unit of Electricity is dependent on the Tariff your Electricity Consumption happens to be charged on.

All Electricity Bills must be settled at AquaGib Limited’s offices, situated at Suite 10b, Leanse Place, 50 Town Rage, Gibraltar GX11 1AA.

Various options exist for the settlement of Electricity Bills, such as, cash, Direct Debit, Online and Telephone Payment.
In order to facilitate your experience when settling your Electricity Bills, we strongly recommend that you take advantage of the Direct Debit payment facility, which will avoid you having to queue at AquaGib Limited’s cashiers.

A Direct Debit Mandate Form must be downloaded from our Download section, completed and submitted at AquaGib Limited’s offices.

You may complete the Go Paperless Form from our Interaction section.

Contact the Arrears Office without further delay, and make them aware of the difficulties you are facing. We will not pry into your affairs, and all information will be kept in the strictest confidence. If you do not contact us, your Electricity Supply may be disconnected.

As per Section 19 (a), of the Gibraltar Electricity Authority Act 2003, the Gibraltar Electricity Authority “may, discontinue to supply electricity to a person whose payment of what is due to the Authority for the supply of electricity is more than 60 days in arrears whether such arrears are in respect of the premises to which a supply is to be discontinued or in respect of any other premises but only whilst such payments or charges remain unpaid.”

This letter has been issued by our Arrears Office, due to any one of your Electricity Bills being more than 60 days in arrears. To avoid the Disconnection of your Electricity Supply, you must settle all outstanding amounts by the Payment Date stipulated on the letter. Failure to do so will result in your Electricity Supply being Disconnected, and an Administration Fee being charged.

Contact our Arrears Office and establish as to whether your Electricity Supply has been Disconnected for Non-Payment of Account. If it has been, a member of our Arrears Office will explain what steps you must take so that your Electricity Supply may be Reconnected.

Whilst the Direct Debit payment facility would ensure that your Electricity Bills do not fall into Arrears, so long as there are sufficient funds in your bank account upon each debit, it is important that you ensure that no Electricity Bill is left outstanding for more than 60 days from the date of the Electricity Bill.

The Gibraltar Electricity Authority offers its Customers the facility to enter into a Repayment Agreement for the settlement of Electricity Arrears. Please contact our Arrears Office who will be able to provide you with further information on this facility.

Yes, your Electricity Supply can be Disconnected if your miss any one of your Electricity Arrears Monthly Instalments or Electricity Bill payments. It is important to note that you will not be notified in advance of your Electricity Supply being Disconnected, therefore it is your responsibility as the Customer to keep us informed should you be having difficulty in meeting the payments stipulated in your Repayment Agreement.

Whilst it is possible for all Electricity Bills to be settled via Direct Debit, and not just Electricity Arrears, we recommend that you submit a Direct Debit Mandate Form once your Electricity Arrears have been settled in full. Failure to do so will mean that your total Electricity Arrears will be debited from your bank account upon the first debit, regardless of the amount owed in Arrears.

It is possible to settle both Electricity Arrears and Electricity Bills on a monthly basis, without having to attend AquaGib Limited’s premises. With the assistance of your bank, and both the Gibraltar Electricity Authority and AquaGib Limited, you can set up a Standing Order with specific instructions for the settlement of your Electricity Arrears, and a Direct Debit for the settlement of your Electricity Bills. Once set up, it is your responsibility as the Customer, to ensure that both payments are being debited from your bank account on a monthly basis, and allocated as previously agreed with us through your Repayment Agreement.
