Do you own or rent the property where you have incurred the electricity bill?
The challenge you have is the electric was consumed, over what period was the heater left on (was it days, weeks or months)?
Understood, who is the utility provider?
I am still here, it can take some time for experts to respond.
SSE have a accounts payable department, if you explain you have issues with affordability and prepared to share with them details of your income and expenditure they should be able to agree an 'affordable' repayment, otherwise just state you cant pay and want a pre-payment meter.
Where customers cant pay they pass the debt to debt collectors, and they will in most cases accept any reasonable offer, and only give a percentage back to SSE so its in the utility companies interest to work with you and agree an affordable amount.
Do let me know if you need me to clarify anything.
