Just moved to Essex? On this page we have laid out all the information you need to make the switch over to E.ON in your area. We know you'll need to start fuelling up your new home pretty quickly, that's why we've made it really easy for you. On this page we've outlined all the information you need about switching over to E.ON in Essex.

Did you know that Essex is the 8th most heavily populated district in the UK with over 1,255,566 inhabitants? Energy is distributed by UK Power Networks to the 179,792 households that make up the whole county notably in the cities of Southend-on-Sea, Basildon, Colchester and Chelmsford. E.ON have a whopping 3.8 million customers across the UK, making them one of the 'Big 6', the 6 energy suppliers with the most market share in the country. In Essex as well, they are a popular option. They have been operating since 2000 ad have a wide range of tariffs on offer, from dual fuel to green tariffs.

So, if you want to make the switch, give E.ON a ring on 0345 052 0000, or if you decide that an alternative energy option suits you better and you want to chat to one of our experts about other plans, give us a ring on 0330 054 0018. Either way, we'll make sure that you power up your new property in Essex ASAP. Read on to find out more about energy in Essex.

How do I start a E.ON contract in Essex?

Moving house can be a difficult and time-consuming process, but at Switch Plan we want to make it as easy as possible and take care of your energy plan for you. In Essex, E.on is the most popular energy provider. However, this might not mean that they have the best plans for you and your energy needs. Remember, you can contact us on 0330 054 0018 to discuss your energy options.

Switching to E.ON in Essex?

If you are moving to Essex for the first time, or if you are moving homes within Essex, an important part of moving house is ensuring that your energy is completely set up prior to moving in. Our experts over at Switch plan will carry out the whole process for you from start to finish, but they will need you to do a few very simple and quick things before chatting.

  • Firstly, when you walk out the door of your old house, take a note of the meter reading and leave it in an easy place to find for the next residents of the property. This is to make a note of how much you used, and to stop you being accidentally overcharged by your provider.
  • Next, go ahead and do the same in your new home in Essex when you first move in. Find the energy meter so you can jot down the reading. It's possible that the supplier of your new property might request a meter reading to know when to start charging you for the energy you have used yourself. So make sure to keep a note of this so your new supplier knows not to overcharge you for this energy too.
  • Lastly, when you move house, you'll probably inherit a 'deemed' contract. This means that you carry on the contract that the previous inhabitants of the property had agreed to. You might like this plan, and want to stick with it! But it's likely that you will want to switch over to a different tariff, as your energy requirements will probably be very different. If you're not sure who provides energy to your new house, or if the previous inhabitants of the house didn't leave you a note with the energy information, you can simply use the Meter Point Administration's online search tool accessible here to find out who your new supplier is.

Switching to E.ON is free and easy, especially with Switch Plan's help. By giving us a ring on 0330 054 0018, one of our experts can guide you through the whole process. Or indeed, we can give you advice about all of your alternative options.

Who are my gas & electricity distribution network operators in Essex?

Who distributes Essex's gas?

Before gas arrives at your house, it must be transported through a system of pipes from its source. As consumers, we don't tend to pay much attention to this part of the process, understandably, since we don't see it directly. However, it might be useful to know a tiny bit of information about gas distribution, since it does affect each and every one of us.

There are 8 Gas Distribution Networks, overseen by 4 gas distribution companies, that make up the system of gas distribution in the UK. They control the transportation of gas throughout the UK to make sure it arrives safely in your home. Since they deal with gas transportation well before it becomes part of your domestic energy consumption, you will probably never need to get in touch with your gas distribution network. However, just in case, their contact number is 0345 835 1111.

Who is your distribution network operator in Essex?

Electricity distribution networks carry electricity from the high voltage transmission grid to domestic users. You may have to contact them for matters such as moving your meter, setting up electricity in a new city property and they intervene to fix power cuts.

Electricity also arrives through a more complex system than we are ever made privy to. A high voltage transmission grid is the source of electricity, which is then transported to domestic users through electricity distribution networks. These are companies that hold special licenses that allow them to distribute electricity through the National Grid and transport it safely to your home. They are in charge of more complex issues, such as setting up electricity in a newbuild, or solving powercuts in your area.

UK Power Networks is the DNO in Essex. Should you ever need to contact them, there contact details are below.
