You need to phone your electricity provider. They will sort you out with supply and a new card.

Sorry, I assumed that a card was part of the problem. You still need to contact the supplier. They can top up the meter remotely and arrange suitable repayments. Get on to them now though. They may close soon.

Is there no emergency credit you can get by just putting your key into the meter? I'm with nPower and had to do this recently when I'd forgotten to top up and the meter was beeping at me while I had a hair dye on! It credited my meter with £7 and took it back off as soon as I stuck some credit on.
