Who are my gas & electricity distribution network operators in West Midlands?

Who is your distribution network operator in West Midlands?

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.

Western Power Distribution is the DNO in West Midlands. Should you ever need to contact them, there contact details are below.

Who is the main gas distributor in West Midlands?

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.

How to get in touch with West Midlands's energy distributors?

You can usually just get in touch with your energy supplier for all the information you need about your gas and electriCity. However, should you need to get in touch with your DNO for some up-to-date information, or if there is a powercut in West Midlands, then all the contact details you need are below.

Moving house can seem like a daunting task, but at Switch Plan we want to make it as simple as possible. In West Midlands, 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.

Switching to E.ON in West Midlands

When you move house, one of the most important things you need to do is set up your gas and electricity contracts. This is a very easy process, although some people find it rather overwhelming. That's why Switch Plan are here. Our experts will do everything for you to make sure your home in West Midlands is fully fuelled up before you move in. However, there are just 3 things you need to make sure it all runs smoothly:

  • 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 provider.
  • Next, you should do the exact same thing in your new house in West Midlands! Locate the energy meter, jot down the reading, and write it down so that 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 good to have a note of this so you're not overcharged and pay for energy you haven't used yourself!
  • Lastly, when you move house, it's highly likely that you take on a 'deemed' contract, which means that you will continue with 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 our dedicated guide and find out who your new supplier is.

Heading over to E.ON's website is a easy way to find out all about their available tariffs. However, having a chat with one of our experts will provide you with impartial information about their energy plans. Switch Plan provides a free service to advise you on all of your options. So, give us a ring on 0330 054 0018 and our experts can talk you through all your available options.
