Setting up an Octopus Energy account in Southwark, London

If you've just moved to Southwark, there are some steps you must follow to start powering up your new home! Switching suppliers in a new home is slightly different to switching in the same property.

Don't forget to contact your current energy supplier to let them know you are moving. If you don't know who currently supplies you with energy, either check a recent energy bill or head over to the Ofgem website where you can find out. Your supplier might let you carry your energy plan over to your new home, but you will likely have to sign up to a new one, or start again. This is a great opportunity to switch suppliers and save a lot of money on your energy! Although, switching before the end of your contract (if you are on a fixed plan) might result in an exit fee, so make sure to check out the conditions of your plan so you aren't taken by surprise by any unforeseen charges.

The most important thing to do when moving property is to take meter readings. When you leave your old place, as well as when you walk through the door of your new home, jot down the numbers you see on the meter. We also recommend taking a photo. This is just to ensure that you aren't overcharged for your energy by your supplier or your landlord. It doesn't matter if you are moving into a rented property or if you have just bought a new house, this is important to ensure you are paying the right amount. Our guide on how to set up energy in a new house will guide you through the process.

We told you it was easy! Now that you have all the information you'll need to provide to our experts, you can ring us up and we can start the switching process.
