As provided in clause 13.2 of the GLO-BUG terms and conditions, we may disconnect your Energy supply immediately if after 12.00am, on any given day, the prepaid credit in your GLO-BUG account reaches $10.00 or less. In such a case, your Energy supply will be disconnected at 12.00pm the following day. To avoid disconnection you are required to make a top-up payment on your GLO-BUG account prior to 12.00pm on the following day so that your prepaid credit in your GLO-BUG account, after any deductions pursuant to clause 10 of the GLO-BUG terms and conditions, is more than $10.00.

Refer to the section under Notices below for details on how we may send our notice of change in the minimum or maximum top-up amount.Debt
As stated in clauses 7 & 8 of the GLO-BUG terms and conditions, debt and other charges may be deducted from the top-up amount. Your account will be credited the balance of the top-up amount less any such deduction.Third Party Processing Fees
