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 Stubbington. 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.

It’s typical for unit prices to change continuously. There is so much to navigate when choosing a provider, so it might be the most helpful for you to call our Switch Plan experts so that you can get the most accurate rates based on your household needs and your locations. Prices are very likely to be different in cities such as Andover, Tadley or Horndean. Average prices are not the most accurate indicators of what a household will pay for their energy; however, it can be useful in having a ballpark range for what the price is for the region.

Who is the main energy supplier to the 24,523 residents across Stubbington?

The most popular energy supplier in South East is British Gas. A large proportion of the inhabitants from large cities such as Southampton, Portsmouth and Basingstoke get their energy from this supplier, and often they haven't actually switched at all. This means they could be losing a large sum of money. Some Brits have managed to save up to £400 a year on their energy bills simply by switching. So, although British Gas is the most popular supplier in your new area, don't feel that you are obliged to stick with them. We don't have anything against this provider, but switching itself can save you money. And our aim is to help you do that.
