Within a few days of signing up, we’ll send you a welcome letter by email or post (depending on which option you chose).

After a mandatory ‘cooling off’ period, we’ll get in touch with your existing supplier and let them know you’re switching to us. We’ll then agree a switchover date with your current supplier – usually four to six weeks from when you signed up.

When your switchover date arrives, we’ll ask you to provide us with a meter reading. This is so we can calculate your energy consumption from the date you switched over to us. We’ll also send this on to your previous supplier so they can provide your final bill.

To give us your meter reading, just give us a call on 0800 954 0693 or 01926 516152.
