What is the process of switching electricity supplier?

Switching electricity supplier is designed to be quick and simple, with no disruption to your power.

 

Once you have chosen a supplier, you’ll need to fill out one more easy form. Once complete, your new electricity provider will schedule a switching date. They will also ask for a meter reading to make sure they can work out your power bill accurately, they’ll also contact your existing supplier to let them know

 

You’ll then have a 14 day ‘cooling off’ period. During this time, you can change your mind and stop the electricity power switch process.

 

Remember, your power won’t be cut off during your switch. Changing electricity provider doesn’t require any building, plumbing or re-wiring. You won’t notice any change, except the price on your power bill.

 

For many of the big suppliers, switching electricity supplier shouldn’t take more than 17 days however for the smaller ones it can take around 6 weeks.

What is green energy electricity and can I compare it?

Green energy is electricity that comes from renewable sources like wind, rain, tides, sunlight, plants, algae or geothermal heat.

 

Unlike fossil fuels, which take millennia to form, these sources of energy are readily available and can be naturally replenished. That’s great news for the environment.

 

More and more providers are choosing to source part or all of their energy by natural means. Some suppliers also offer other green policies, such as paperless billing, or a promise to commit to forest preservation.

 

With comparethemarket.com, you can easily choose a green energy solution for your home or business. On the price comparison page, simple refine your results by checking the ‘green’ box under ‘tariff types’.
