Octopus Energy in Lincolnshire

With a wide range of suppliers to choose from in Lincolnshire, 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 Lincolnshire, 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 Lincolnshire? 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 Lincolnshire a bit more generally. How much do you know about the area? Here are some fun facts:

  • Lincolnshire is the country's 23rd most populated county in the UK.
  • A decent chunk of that population living in the cities of Grimsby, Lincoln, Scunthorpe and Grantham.
  • There are 603,817 inhabitants living in Lincolnshire across 306,708.
  • Western Power Distribution is responsible for distributing energy to the 306,708 households of your county.
  • Cadent Gas distributes gas to the homes of Lincolnshire.

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 Lincolnshire?

Who manages electricity distribution for the 306,708 households in Lincolnshire?

In Lincolnshire your distribution network operator (DNO) is Western Power Distribution. You might never need to get in touch with them, as most queries can be resolved directly by your energy supplier. But if you find that you need to contact your DNO, all the contact details can be located on this page.

Your DNO is the company that owns and operates the power lines and infrastructure that connects your home to the National Grid. Your DNO can assist you with technical queries such as moving your meter, setting up electricity in your property, or solving a power cut.

Who is the main gas distributor in Lincolnshire?

In Lincolnshire, the gas distribution company is Cadent Gas. Since we tend to speak to our energy suppliers for any queries about gas and electricity, we don't usually have to contact our gas distributors. They manage the transportation of gas through underground pipes before it eventually arrives with our suppliers. In short, gas doesn't just appear out of thin air!

Should you need to get in touch with your gas distribution network, we have provided their contact details below. There are 4 gas distribution companies that operate in different regions in the UK. Underneath these companies, there are 8 gas distribution networks that operate on a more local level to manage your gas provision.

How can I contact my network distributor in Lincolnshire?

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

Switching to Octopus Energy in East Midland

Switching energy suppliers isn't a difficult or time-consuming process. And it's completely free! Our Switch Plan experts can switch you over to a new energy plan in Lincolnshire in just a few minutes, at no cost. When moving house, you want to make sure that you finalise a few things before you are able to switch in your new house. The first thing to do is to let your current supplier know that you are moving in Lincolnshire. You should do this at least 48 hours before you move. If you are in a rented property or in your own new home, the process is more or less the same. If you don't know who supplies your energy, head over to the Ofgem website

Now, one of the most important things to do when moving is to take energy meter readings. When you leave your previous residence, take your final meter reading, and take your first meter reading in your new place as soon as you move in. Don't forget to take a photo of the meters and/or jot them down on some paper. It might be worth writing down the meter reading of your old home and leaving this information in a safe place for the new residents of the property.

Although you can't switch energy suppliers until your first official day in your new property, you should definitely start researching which energy plan you want to switch to well in advance of moving in. This is because you will automatically be put on a default tariff in your new home when you move in, which tend to be much pricier, so you'll want to switch as quickly as possible.

Octopus Energy have lot's of information online about switching over to one of their plans. However, if you want free, quick, and unbias information about making this switch, don't hesitate to give us a ring on 0300 054 0018 and we can talk you through the best plan for you.

Octopus Energy: how much do you know about this young supplier?

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 Lincolnshire, 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.
