Octopus Energy in West Yorkshire

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

  • West Yorkshire is the country's 4th most populated county in the UK.
  • A decent chunk of that population living in the cities of Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield.
  • There are 1,916,313 inhabitants living in West Yorkshire across 192,319.
  • Northern Powergrid is responsible for distributing energy to the 192,319 households of your county.
  • Northern Gas Networks distributes gas to the homes of West Yorkshire.

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.

Switching to Octopus Energy in Yorkshire

Octopus Energy in West Yorkshire

Let's break down the important facts about Octopus. * Founded in 2015, they now have over 1 million customers all across the UK. * On average, they gain around 30,000 customers each month. * Their growth is in part down to a number of successful acquisitions, including M&S Energy in 2018 and Coop Energy in 2019. * They are widely considered to be one of the greenest energy suppliers on the market, with middle-ranging tariff rates.

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 West Yorkshire 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 West Yorkshire. 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.

Who are my gas & electricity distribution network operators in West Yorkshire?

Who is your distribution network operator in West Yorkshire?

In West Yorkshire your Distribution Network Operator (DNO) is Northern Powergrid. But what exactly is a DNO? In short, Ofgem licenses certain companies to be in charge of distributing electricity around the UK. These companies oversee the management of cables and towers that link up the electricity supply in the UK - also known as the National Grid - and make sure this electricity arrives safely in your home or place of work. You might never need to get in touch with them, but should you experience a powercut, or need some advice about a technical query, then you should consult the contact details laid out below.

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 West Yorkshire will receive their gas supply from Northern Gas Networks, 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.
