How to make the switch to E.ON in North Yorkshire?Moving to North Yorkshire and want to get started on an E.ON energy plan? You'll want to make sure that your gas and electricity is fully set up before the big move-in day. No one wants a dark, cold house! Our experts can sort this out for you, from start to finish. However, in order to make the most informed decision possible, they will need you to do a few things beforehand.
- Firstly, when you leave your old house, take a note of the meter reading and leave it in an accessible place 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 supplier.
- Next, you should do the exact same thing in your new house in North Yorkshire! Just find the energy meter and take a note of the reading so you have it to hand should you need it. Sometimes, the supplier of your new property might request a meter reading to know when to start charging you for the energy you use. So it's important to have a note of this so as not to be overcharged and pay for energy you haven't used!
- Lastly, when you move house, it's highly likely that you inherit a 'deemed' contract. This means that you carry on the contract that the previous residents of the property had agreed to. You might like this plan, and want to stick with it! But chances are you will need to switch over to a different tariff to suit your energy needs better. If you're not sure who supplies your new house with energy, or if the previous inhabitants of the house didn't leave you a note with the energy information, you can simply head over to the Ofgem website and find out who your new supplier is.
Moving house can seem like a daunting task, but at Switch Plan we want to make it as simple as possible. In North Yorkshire, Npower is the go-to energy supplier. However, this might not mean that they have the optimal tariffs and offers for your household. If you want more information on E.ON offers, you can contact Switch Plan on 0330 054 0018 to talk through your energy options.

Who distributes North Yorkshire'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 0800 040 7766.
Who distributes electricity to North Yorkshire's 509,286 households?
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.
