Octopus Energy in Cambridgeshire

With a wide range of suppliers to choose from in Cambridgeshire, it's important to read up a bit on who they all are and what they provide. Octopus is up and coming and lot's of customers are switching away from the likes of British Gas and Scottish Power in favour of what these market newcomers have to offer.

Whether you have just moved to Cambridgeshire, or even if you have lived there for some time now and never switched suppliers, you might not know the energy make-up of the area. Who is the main supplier in Cambridgeshire? What is the average consumption and price of energy? That, and more, is what you will find out on this page. But first, let's dive into Cambridgeshire a bit more generally. How much do you know about the area? Here are some fun facts:

  • Cambridgeshire is the country's 30th most populated county in the UK.
  • A decent chunk of that population living in the cities of Peterborough, Cambridge, Saint Neots and Wisbech.
  • There are 500,493 inhabitants living in Cambridgeshire across 526,949.
  • UK Power Networks is responsible for distributing energy to the 526,949 households of your county.
  • Cadent Gas distributes gas to the homes of Cambridgeshire.

But, while facts and figures are important, it's also good to remember that your energy supply is personal to you. Every household has its own requirements which depend on: * The size of your house. * The number of inhabitants. * How much energy you all use.

Switching to Octopus Energy in Cambridgeshire?

Switching energy suppliers may seem like a big deal, but in reality it's so easy. Switch Plan have made it quicker and simpler than ever. You just need to make sure that you follow a few simple instructions to get started with your new energy plan in Cambridgeshire.

Switching energy suppliers when moving house is a slightly different process to if you are switching in the same property. It simply requires you to take a few more steps. Firstly, let your energy supplier know that you are moving house, and make sure that you do this at least 48 hours in advance of the move. If you don't know who supplies your current property with gas and electricity, then head over to the Ofgem website and they will provide all the answers. Or, you can check out a recent energy bill, either an online or paper version.

Take energy meters in both your old and new properties. Having photographic or written evidence of your exact consumption as you leave one property and enter the next will allow you to dispute any possible errors on your energy bills. You should make sure to do this whether you are moving into a new property, or if you are in a rented property.

Start researching what energy plan you want to switch to before moving day. Remember, you can't switch to a new supplier before the day you officially move in to your new property, so knowing exactly what plan you want to switch to will make the whole process much quicker and smoother. The default tariff that you will automatically be put on in your new property will be more expensive than one that you want to switch to, so try to switch as soon as possible after you move in.
