Light up your new home in Hatfield

Now that you're in Hatfield, you want to set up Octopus as your new supplier - how to go about making the switch.

One easy step that could very well save you money is to take a meter reading before you move. Like with any big change, there are some steps that you need to complete before you move house. You want to make sure that you are not paying for energy that you are not able to use! Once you have the meter reading and Meter Point Reference Number you are ready to make the switch!

To make your life a bit easier, you should complete the following before leaving your current home. For this reason, we've prepared a moving checklist so that you won't leave anything behind! So, let’s begin: * Number 1 and the most important thing! Before moving, take a meter reading. This way, you're not paying 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 situated, you are then clear to move without having to worry about paying for energy that you didn't or would not be able to use. If you ever have any doubts, you can check our resource that is dedicated to moving into a new build and moving into a rented house.

When moving to a new city such as Hatfield, setting up your new electric and gas can be difficult. When you move, if you do not switch to a new supplier or plan type with your current supplier, you will be under a “deemed contract”, or standard tariff of the previous homeowner’s supplier until you make a switch. You can call the supplier directly, either the one that you currently have or a new one that you have found through research. A better option might be to call us at Switch Plan to help you find the best deal. We suggest that you switch out of the deemed contract ASAP because it is usually much more expensive than your typical tariff.

These factors all affect the tariffs that will be available to you in your new home. If Hatfield is far away from your original location, your tariff could be much more expensive than it was prior to your move.
