Switching to OVO Energy in Kent?

Switching energy suppliers may seem like a big deal, but in reality it's so easy. Switch Plan have made it quicker and simpler than ever. You just need to make sure that you follow a few simple instructions to get started with your new energy plan in Kent.

  • Firstly, when you leave your old house, take a note of the meter reading and leave one in an accessible place for the next residents of the property. This is to make a note of how much you used, and to stop you being accidentally overcharged by your provider.
  • Next, you should do the exact same thing in your new house in Kent! Locate the energy meter, jot down the reading, and write it down so that you have it to hand should you need it. 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 good to have a note of this so you're not overcharged and pay for energy you haven't used yourself!
  • Lastly, it's highly likely that you take on a 'deemed' contract in your new residence, which means that you will continue with the contract that the previous residents of the property had signed up to. You might like this plan, and want to stick with it! 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 plenty 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 you.
