What happens when I’ve chosen my new energy supplier?
If you haven’t done your homework yet and chosen a new energy supplier – tut, tut, it’s time to get cracking because you could be missing out. All you need is your postcode (as energy costs are based on where you live) and a few details from your bill such as how many kilowatt hours you use or how much you generally spend, and away you go.
If you’ve already chosen a new supplier, what happens next? Well, in most instances your new supplier will do all the hard work – they’ll liaise with your existing supplier and agree a date that the big switch will happen. All you’ll need to do is make sure you take a meter reading on the date that the swap has been set for – so far, so simples right?
Pay off any outstanding bills with your existing supplier and once you’ve done that you can cancel any Direct Debits you have with them. If you’re in credit, then make sure you get a refund.
