Octopus Energy in Highland

With a wide range of suppliers to choose from in Highland, it's important to read up a bit on who they all are and what they provide. Octopus is up and coming and lot's of customers are switching away from the likes of British Gas and Scottish Power in favour of what these market newcomers have to offer.

Whether you have just moved to Highland, or even if you have lived there for some time now and never switched suppliers, you might not know the energy make-up of the area. Who is the main supplier in Highland? What is the average consumption and price of energy? That, and more, is what you will find out on this page. But first, let's dive into Highland a bit more generally. How much do you know about the area? Here are some fun facts:

  • Highland is the country's 60th most populated county in the UK.
  • A decent chunk of that population living in the cities of Inverness, Wester Ross, Strathpeffer and Lochalsh Ward, Nairn and Landward Caithness Ward.
  • There are 122,630 inhabitants living in Highland across 13,876.
  • SSE is responsible for distributing energy to the 13,876 households of your county.
  • SGN distributes gas to the homes of Highland.

But, while facts and figures are important, it's also good to remember that your energy supply is personal to you. Every household has its own requirements which depend on: * The size of your house. * The number of inhabitants. * How much energy you all use.

If you want to switch to an Octopus Energy tariff, ring them up on 0330 808 1080 to speak to one of their advisers. If you want to shop around for an alternative energy plan, ring us up to chat to one of our experts.

Who are my gas & electricity distribution network operators in Highland?

Who distributes gas in Highland?

Before your supplier can provide you with gas to heat up your home, they need to get that very gas from somewhere! But where do they get it from? Honestly, you don't need to know the exact details, but put simply, gas is distributed around the UK by gas distribution networks. There are 8 of these, all operating in different regions, and they are overseen by 4 gas distribution companies. Transporting gas requires careful attention, as a gas leak is no fun for anybody. Whoever your gas supplier may be in Highland will receive their gas supply from SGN, who operates all around the county.

So no, gas doesn't appear out of thin air, but instead is transported through a fairly complex system of pipes underground which are very carefully managed. Don't worry about having to get in touch with them, since your supplier can typically answer all the questions you have about your energy supply, but all of their contact information can be found below should you find yourself in a gas emergency.

How to get in touch with Highland's energy distributors?

Inhabitants of Highland can call their local Highland electricity DNO (Distribution Network Operator) or gas distributor in case of emergency or to get up-to-date information.

How to make the switch to Octopus Energy in Highland?

Octopus Energy in Highland

Who are Octopus Energy? They are becoming a household name since their burst onto the energy scene in the UK in 2015 and their exponential growth ever since. They are growing by 30,000 customers a month and now have over 1 million customers. But still, they don't rank in the Big 6, which many customers actually find reassuring, given the Big 6's reputation for overcharging their customers and having poor customer service.

If you want to be one of their many customers in your new home in Highland, then you can ring up their advisers on 0330 808 1080. Alternatively, give our experts at Switch Plan a ring and they can advise you on the best plan on the market for you.

We are here to debunk the myth that switching energy suppliers is difficult, time-consuming, or expensive. It's literally the opposite! Calling Switch Plan is free and the whole process only takes a few minutes. If you are moving into a new home in Highland and want to switch to a new energy contract, then the process is slightly different to if you are staying in the same property, but not much. There are just a few extra steps for you to take.

The most important thing to do at this time is to take meter readings. Make sure that you do this in both properties. When you leave your previous residence, take a last meter reading, and when you enter your new property, take a first meter reading. Jot these both down and you will be able to provide proof to your energy supplier of your consumption if you find yourself being overcharged.

Let you energy supplier know that you are moving at least 48 hours prior to your move to they can make necessary arrangements for you. If you don't know who your energy supplier is, visit Ofgem website, or check out a recent energy bill. Whether you are moving into a rented property, or you are a new homeowner, this process is more or less the same.

You should start researching your new energy supplier before moving house, but remember that you can't switch suppliers before your official move in day. This means that you will be automatically put onto a default tariff for the first month in your new home. Default tariffs tend to be quite expensive, so you wan't to be able to switch as soon as possible in Highland.

Octopus Energy have a lot of information for their customers on their website. However, for free, unbias information about switching suppliers, our experts are here to help. Don't hesitate to give us a ring on 0300 054 0018 and we can talk you through the best plan for your economic and environmental requirements as a household.
