What's the Energy Switch Guarantee?

Energy Switch Guarantee started from energy providers agreeing to make the process of switching easier. If you decide to switch to us we'll deal with the whole process for you.


How does it work? 

  • All energy providers use the same wires and pipes, therefore your energy supply will not be interrupted.

  • The switching service is free and will take no longer than 21 days from the date your new provider receives your application.

  • We won’t need to visit your home unless you agree otherwise.
  • We’ll arrange the switch, including contacting your current provider to let them know you are leaving.


You can change your mind

We’ll send you details of your new energy agreement, and you'll have 14 days to change your mind. If you cancel in this time, you will stay with your current provider. We’ll work together to make sure you’re not charged twice for the same energy.


We’ll deal with any problems

Don’t worry – if there are any problems during the switch, we - as your new provider - will contact you and will be responsible for sorting it out.


How to settle your last bill

Your old provider will send you a final bill no later than six weeks after the switch. If they owe you any money, they will refund this to you no later than 14 days after sending you the final bill.

Choose your tariff

Before you switch

Find out if your current contract has an exit fee - this will usually be on your energy bill. If there are exit fees, decide if you're happy to go ahead with the switch. The new tariff may still be better for you because of the price or any additional items it may include. 


Find the right deal for you

After you get your quote

When you get your quote, you’ll have different tariffs to choose from. Think about what you want from your tariff. Do you want flexibility? Added cover for your boiler? Perhaps you’d like some smart home tech to control your energy better? Look at our range of tariffs to help you decide. 


There are some other things to bear in mind when thinking about new tariffs:

Take a look at the details of the tariff – such as exit fees, energy sources and whether price rises are capped or not.

Check if you need a specific tariff for the type of electricity meter you have – such as a prepayment meter or an Economy 7 meter.
