Switching business energy is similar to switching a residential supply. To make things simple and straightforward, we’ll ask you to enter a postcode, confirm your address and input your business energy use (it’s always handy to have a bill to hand). If you don't know how much energy your business uses in kWh, you can always enter spend in pounds.
Once you select a new tariff, we’ll run a ‘soft’ credit check to see if your business is eligible. This is normal and most business energy suppliers do this. Once completed, you just need to select a start date you'd like (up to 150 days) and enter business owner details in order to set up an energy account.
If I switch my small business energy online, what information do I need?
We normally just need businesses to enter very basic information such as:
In some cases, if we're unable to retrieve your metering details we'll need to confirm information which can be found on a bill or our Live Chat team can help you answer.
What happens once I choose to switch my business energy to EDF?
If you choose to switch to us on a fixed-term contract, you can sign up straight away from the quote process. Otherwise, you can give us a call or request a callback and once you choose the tariff that is right for you, we'll sort out the rest.
We'll contact your current supplier on your behalf and advise them of the transfer date. To follow the progress of your transfer you can log in to MyAccount and use the Contract Tracker.
On the date of your transfer just take a meter reading and submit it to us. You can do this by visiting MyAccount, via our mobile app, or by calling us on 0333 200 5103.
