Who are Octopus Energy?

How much do you know about Octopus Energy? Although they have become somewhat of a household name over the past few years, they are still relatively small. Founded in 2015, they have grown exponentially after some successful acquisitions, including M&S Energy in 2018 and Coop Energy in 2019. Gaining around 30,000 customers each month, they have developed a customer base of around one million households across the UK. Their unique and renewable energy plans and affordable prices have attracted customers and hailed very positive reviews in the process.

Switching energy suppliers isn't a difficult or time-consuming process. And it's completely free! Our Switch Plan experts can switch you over to a new energy plan in Dumfries and Galloway in just a few minutes, at no cost. When moving house, you want to make sure that you finalise a few things before you are able to switch in your new house. The first thing to do is to let your current supplier know that you are moving in Dumfries and Galloway. You should do this at least 48 hours before you move. If you are in a rented property or in your own new home, the process is more or less the same. If you don't know who supplies your energy, head over to the Ofgem website

Now, one of the most important things to do when moving is to take energy meter readings. When you leave your previous residence, take your final meter reading, and take your first meter reading in your new place as soon as you move in. Don't forget to take a photo of the meters and/or jot them down on some paper. It might be worth writing down the meter reading of your old home and leaving this information in a safe place for the new residents of the property.

Although you can't switch energy suppliers until your first official day in your new property, you should definitely start researching which energy plan you want to switch to well in advance of moving in. This is because you will automatically be put on a default tariff in your new home when you move in, which tend to be much pricier, so you'll want to switch as quickly as possible.

Octopus Energy have lot's of information online about switching over to one of their plans. However, if you want free, quick, and unbias information about making this switch, don't hesitate to give us a ring on 0300 054 0018 and we can talk you through the best plan for you.

Who is the main gas distributor in Dumfries and Galloway?

Before your supplier can provide you with gas to heat up your home, they need to get that very gas from somewhere! But where do they get it from? Honestly, you don't need to know the exact details, but put simply, gas is distributed around the UK by gas distribution networks. There are 8 of these, all operating in different regions, and they are overseen by 4 gas distribution companies. Transporting gas requires careful attention, as a gas leak is no fun for anybody. Whoever your gas supplier may be in Dumfries and Galloway will receive their gas supply from SGN, who operates all around the county.

So no, gas doesn't appear out of thin air, but instead is transported through a fairly complex system of pipes underground which are very carefully managed. Don't worry about having to get in touch with them, since your supplier can typically answer all the questions you have about your energy supply, but all of their contact information can be found below should you find yourself in a gas emergency.

Who manages electricity distribution for the 17,537 households in Dumfries and Galloway?

In Dumfries and Galloway, your distribution network operator (DNO) is Scottish Power Energy Networks. Your DNO is in charge of all of the cables and towers that make up the electricity distribution in the UK. They transport electricity from the national transmission network (the National Grid) and supplying it to homes and businesses. Just as with gas, you will most likely never have to get in touch with your DNO, but should you need to, their contact details are listed on this page.
