What do I need to switch energy suppliers?

It's best to have your recent energy bill to hand as that will have all the information you need, including your electricity and/or gas use. If you can't find it, don't worry. As long as you have your:

  • post code
  • name of your current energy supplier and
  • name of the tariff you're on

You'll be all set to compare energy prices. 

Is it worth switching energy providers?

Yes! It's really worth switching your electricity and gas supplier or, at least, having a look at the market on regular basis. When comparing energy prices, it makes sense to also look at other aspects, including: 

  • Does the new tariff have exit fees?
  • Does your current tariff have exit fees?
  • Is the energy low-carbon or renewable?
  • Is the customer service reliable?
  • Can I service my account online?

How long will the switch take?

Your energy switch will complete within 21 days from when we receive your application. 

Can I cancel after I've switched my energy providers?

Yes, of course. You can cancel within 14 days and there's no cost to you. 

Do I need to let my current supplier know I'm leaving?

No, you don't. We'll do that for you. Be sure to give us your meter readings. We'll be in touch with your old supplier to ensure they send you an accurate final bill.
