Setting up an E.ON contract in the 68th biggest county in the UK?

How to make the switch to E.ON in Orkney?

Moving to Orkney 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 Orkney! 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 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 Orkney, SSE 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.

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

Who is your distribution network operator in Orkney?

A Distribution Network Operator is a company licensed to distribute electricity in the UK. These companies own and operate the system of cables and towers that bring electricity from the National Grid all the way to your home. 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.

Just like with your gas distribution network, you might not need to contact your DNO. However, just in case, your network operator is SSE in Orkney, and you can find their contact details below.

Who distributes Orkney's gas?

Wouldn't it be great if gas and electricity could just appear in your house as if by magic? Well unfortunately, that's not the case. It's not like you'll ever need to know the complexities behind the system that provides energy to your home, but you may want to know the basics. There are 8 Gas Distribution Networks that transport gas within a particular region in the UK. These distribution networks are then managed by 4 gas distribution companies, which also control different regions' energy supply. That's all you really need to know, since your supplier provides energy directly to your home, so you will only need to liaise with them should you have any questions or emergencies. However, for your information, you can get in touch with your gas distribution network by calling them on 0800 912 1700.
