Octopus is known for having reasonable, hyper competitive prices, but their tariffs are unique as well, unlike most other energy suppliers out there. They are 100% renewable, which is rare, especially as a low cost provider. 100% renewable energy counts towards both electricity and gas.

If you have an electric vehicle - Octopus Energy might be the perfect provider for you.

Octopus Energy stands to their green initiatives, as you can see, one of their goals is to improve the ease of access to electric vehicles.

Setting up Octopus in your new home in West Middleton Ward

Like with any big change, there are some steps that you need to complete before you move house. One easy step that might save you money is to take a meter reading before you move. This way, you´re not paying for energy that you did not use! Once you have the meter reading and Meter Point Reference Number you are good to go! But, just to be sure, check out our moving checklist so that you won't leave anything behind! * The most important thing! Before moving, take a meter reading so that you do not need to pay for energy that you haven’t used. * After you have your meter reading, it's time to sort out your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). * Once your MPRN is sorted, you are then clear to move without having to worry about paying for energy that you didn't use. In case you have any doubt´s we have more extensive guides dedicated to moving into a new build and moving into a rented house. Setting up your gas and electricity in a new home can be difficult, especially when moving to a new city like West Middleton Ward. When you move, until you switch to a new supplier or tariff with your current supplier, you will be put under a ‘deemed contract’ or the standard tariff of the previous homeowner’s supplier until you switch. You can make the switch by calling your chosen supplier or, to make things a bit easier, by calling us at Switch Plan to help you find the best deal. We suggest that you switch out of the deemed contract as soon as possible because it is usually more expensive than your typical tariff.

How to transfer your energy supplier to your new home?

You can keep the same supplier when moving house in most instances if you so wish. We have a guide on how to manage an energy transfer. Before digging in, we will explain a few factors that could affect whether you will be able to keep your supplier or not. Such factors include: * The presence of a prepayment meter on your new property * How far you’ve moved from your original residence * Whether your new property uses electricity, gas, or dual fuel * Whether you have upgraded/downgraded the size of your home. * Your new home’s estimated energy consumption These factors all affect the tariffs that will be available to you in your new home. If West Middleton Ward is far away from your original location, your tariff could be much more expensive than it was prior to your move. So if your bill goes up in costs, we highly recommend that you switch energy suppliers and look at the best deal for your area. We’re more than happy to help you navigate the best switch for you!
