How to set-up your Octopus Energy contract in Islington, London?

Here, let's focus on how to switch to a new supplier if you are moving to a new home in Islington.

Taking meter readings is the most important thing to do regarding energy if you want to have a smooth transition into your new home. Make sure you take a meter reading in both properties - one before you leave your previous property and one as you enter your new home. Having this information will allow you to dispute any errors made on your energy bill by your supplier. We know that there are more exciting things to do than taking meter readings as you move into a new home, but this is very important to ensure that you aren't overcharged. We recommend jotting down the numbers on the meter, as well as taking a photo for double proof. It you are moving into a rented property or your own place, then the process is almost the same. If you are renting, then your tenancy agreement will outline whether or not you are in charge of your energy supply, or whether this responsibility falls on your landlord. Make sure you know this information prior to moving in.

Another important step is letting your supplier know that you are moving home. They will need to know your new address if you intend to continue receiving your energy supply from them in particular. Alternatively, if you want to switch to a new supplier (which we recommend!) then you will need to end your contract. Be aware that if you are on a fixed contract then you might have to pay an exit fee, but this sometimes can't be avoided if you are moving home. If you don't know who your current supplier is, then head over to the Ofgem website or check a recent online or paper bill.

You will automatically be put on a default tariff when you first move into your new property. These tend to be more expensive, so make sure you start researching energy suppliers and their tariffs as soon as possible so you can switch over quickly and not overpay for your energy.

Energy distribution in Islington

Who distributes Islington's electricity?

The likelihood of you having to get in touch with your DNO is pretty slim. Your supplier can usually provide you with all the information you need regarding your energy supply. However, if Islington is currently in a power cut, you should ring the emergency phone number for your distributor, which is listed below.

Distribution network operators oversee the management of cables and towers that connect the National Grid, which is in charge of connecting electricity supplies around the country, and they make sure this electricity arrives safely in your home or place of work. Londoners can give their local Greater London electricity DNO (Distribution Network Operator) a ring, or their gas provider in case of emergency or to request very up-to-date information about energy in the area.

Who distributes Islington's gas to its 15338?

In Islington, Cadent Gas is in charge of distributing your gas locally. If you wanted to get in touch with them for whatever reason, you can ring them on 0345 835 1111. However, you will probably never need to. Just like your DNO, they are in charge of more complex issues of national gas transportation. Gas doesn't just appear out of thin air in your home, remember. It is transported around the country through a complex system of pipes before it arrives at your front door. 8 gas distribution networks oversee the more regional distribution, which are then managed by 4 gas distribution companies. Remember, gas can be dangerous if mismanaged, so it's important that there is a lot of control.
