Switching to OVO Energy in North West England

Switching energy suppliers may seem like a scary thing to do, but it's never been so quick and easy. When you're moving house, you just need to make sure that you follow a few simple steps to kick start your new energy plan in Greater Manchester.

  • Firstly, take a note of the meter reading when you leave your old house, and pop it in an accessible place for the next residents of the property. This is to make sure you can let your supplier know how much you used, and to stop you being accidentally overcharged by your supplier.
  • Next, you should do the exact same thing in your new house in Greater Manchester! Find the meter and jot down the reading. Sometimes, the supplier of your new property might request a meter reading to know when to start charging you for the energy you use. So it's important to keep a note of this so as not to be overcharged and pay for energy that you haven't used.
  • Finally, when you move house, it's highly likely that you inherit a 'deemed' contract. This means that you start on the contract that the previous inhabitants were on. You might like this plan, and want to stick with it, which is fine! But chances are you will need to switch over to a different tariff to suit your energy needs better. If you're not sure who supplies your new house with energy, or if the previous inhabitants of the house didn't leave you a note with the energy information, you can simply head over to Ofgem website and find out who your new supplier is.

OVO Energy have a lot of information on their website about switching over to one of their plans. However, if you want free, impartial 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 your economic and environmental requirements as a household.
