Light up your new home in Rothwell Ward

How do I go about making an energy transfer in Rothwell Ward?

You can keep the same supplier when moving house in most instances if you so wish. We have a guide on how to manage an energy transfer. Before digging in, we will explain a few factors that could affect whether you will be able to keep your supplier or not.

Such factors include: * The presence of a prepayment meter on your new property * How far you’ve moved from your original residence * Whether your new property uses electricity, gas, or dual fuel * Whether you have upgraded/downgraded the size of your home. * Your new home’s estimated energy consumption

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

So if your bill goes up in costs, we highly recommend that you switch energy suppliers and look at the best deal for your area. We’re more than happy to help you navigate the best switch for you! Just give our experts a call at the number on the top of the screen.

In Rothwell Ward, how to become connected to the grid

Once you move to your new home in Rothwell Ward there are steps you will need to follow to connect to the grid so that you can receive your energy supply to both power and heat your home. It is likely that your property is already connected to the grid, however in instances that it’s not, e.g., when you are building a new home, follow the steps below. (The vast majority of the 8,757 houses in Rothwell Ward are already connected so the list below is for those that are building a new property.

  • Call the National Grid Energy Transmission (NGET) on 0800 688 588 in order to arrange a pre-application meeting. This meeting is about the workload, timeline and cost of the project.
  • Submit application forms to the Electricity Systems Operator (ESO) - don’t be surprised by the application fee!
  • A team will then come to your property for an assessment and will send you a quote in 1 to 3 working weeks.
  • Enjoy your power!

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

When moving to any city, such as Rothwell Ward, it can be a bit daunting to know all the things that must be done. No need to worry, we have a clear lay of the land that will be helpful.

To make your life a bit easier, there are some steps you should complete before leaving your current home. This is why we've prepared a moving checklist so that you won't leave anything behind! So, let’s begin: * The most important thing! Before moving, take a meter reading so that you do not need to pay 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 sorted, you are then clear to move without having to worry about paying for energy that you didn't use. In case you have any doubts we have more extensive guides dedicated to moving into a new build and moving into a rented house.

If you are moving into a property that is already connected to the grid, the only thing you need to do is select a provider and tariff for your home. However, there is one thing you should be weary of when moving house: Whether you are moving into a new property or not, the house will be put under a deemed contract. This contract is considered the standard tariff and it is often more expensive than the other tariffs that an energy supplier offers. So. it is important to switch energy suppliers quickly!
