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.

Did you know that Tyne and Wear is the 19th most heavily populated district in the UK with over 677,122 inhabitants? Energy is distributed by Northern Powergrid to the 220,496 households that make up the whole county notably in the cities of Tyneside, Sunderland, Gateshead and South Shields. 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.

Switching to E.ON in Tyne and Wear

Moving to Tyne and Wear 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 Tyne and Wear! 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.

Who are my gas & electricity distribution network operators in Tyne and Wear?

Who distributes Tyne and Wear's gas?

How gas and electricity travels around the country seems somewhat of a mystery. If only it could stay that way! However, it's quite important that you know how gas is actually delivered to your home, should you encounter any sort of problem or difficulty. Usually, you can get in touch with your energy supplier for questions about energy provision and distribution, but just in case, here's a quick recap.

Before gas can actually arrive in your house to keep you warm and cook your food, it is actually transported through a pretty complex system of pipes that form the Gas Distribution Network in the UK. There are actually 8 gas distribution systems which are controlled by 4 gas distribution companies. They are in charge of all the transportation of gas around the country and, for this reason, you'll probably never need to get in touch with them. Your supplier will be able to provide you with all the information you need about your energy supply, as well as any advice you may need. However, should you need to get in touch with a concern or gas emergency, you can give them a ring on 0800 040 7766.

How can I contact my network distributor in Tyne and Wear?
