What happens after I switch?
Your new supplier will send you a contract by post or by email to confirm your tariff, current rates and how you want to pay. They will also contact your old supplier for you, letting them know you're switching provider.
Your new supplier will either phone or write to you to confirm the date they will become your energy supplier. If you have any outstanding bills with your old supplier this may delay the start date.
Your new supplier will ask you to provide them with a reading; you can usually do this online or by phone.
Your new supplier will confirm in writing when the switch has happened. They will also provide details of your account number, which will be required should you need to contact them.
Many energy suppliers have cut the time it takes to switch your supply from an average of 6-8 weeks to just 17 days, making it a much quicker and easy experience for you to move to a new provider.
