How it works

Moving home with EDF Energy in four easy steps:


Go to MyAccount and tell us you’re moving

You can do this up to ten days before you move.


Take us with you and set up a new account for your new home

Or we can give you a quote if we don’t yet supply your new place.


On moving out day take your closing meter reads

For ease, take a picture on your phone and send it to us.
We’ll send you a final bill to close that account – and it’ll come to your new address.


We’ll confirm all your new details

One less thing to worry about so you can concentrate on settling into your new home.

We don’t want you to forget anything important so here's a handy checklist.

Has your new home got a smart meter?

Smart Meter

We will let you know if we can support your smart meter as we set up your new account.

Your new home should also have the handy in-home display – it's the monitor that visualises information from your smart meter such as spend and usage so you can keep an eye on your energy. 

Has your new home got a prepayment meter?

Prepayment or 'pay as you go' meters allow you to use energy on a pay as you go basis and can be topped up with an electricity key or gas card. The previous occupants should leave the card and key for you, and you can add funds at any PayPoint, Payzone outlet or Post Office. It's important you pay the right prices with the right key and card.

If it’s your first time using a prepayment or 'pay as you go' meter, there’s lots of useful help and information here including where to find your nearest top up shops.

Keep safe in your new home

When you move in, remember to check the following:


Where is your meter?

Make sure that your meter's located where you can safely access it without standing on something. 

Is your meter damaged?

Find out what to do here if you discover your meter's damaged in any way.


Missing insulation?

Find out what to do here if you spot any cables to your electricity meter missing plastic insulation.

In some instances we may need to reset your meter. You may want to change the meter, in which case you’ll need to arrange for a meter exchange. We can arrange this for you when you call to set up your account.

Not just energy

When you’re settling into your new home it’s reassuring to know that if anything happens we can help. Do you know how well the boiler is working? How’s the wiring and plumbing? And if you’re renting, check with your landlord and make sure they provide all the relevant safety certificates. 

Boiler cover

Boiler Protect safeguards your home's boiler, controls and thermostats. A nationwide network of expert Gas Safe engineers are on call 24/7 to repair or replace as needed. 

Boiler service

Need a boiler service? No problem – qualified Gas Safe engineers will carry out one-off boiler services and safety checks on demand. 

Can your new home benefit from ECO?

ECO is a government scheme to offer eligible customers subsidised energy efficiency improvements for their homes.
