Switching to Octopus Energy in North East England

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 Northumberland 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 Northumberland. 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.
