Plans and dual fuel tariffs available with OVO for Leicesterians

While dual fuel is becoming increasingly popular, some households still opt for separate gas and electricity plans, even sometimes from separate suppliers. In Leicester, 8.69% households opt for electric central heating systems, compared to 88.28% for gas and just 0.39% for oil. However, OVO Energy has a number of dual fuel plans, as can be far more convenient to keep all your costs in one place with one plan.

  • We know that saying goodbye to your old place should be more sentimental than taking a meter reading. But, it's important that you take a meter reading in your previous home as you walk out the door to make sure that you don't pay for what you don't use. Write it down and leave it in a safe place where the next inhabitants of the house can find it. You'll also this information just in case your previous provider wants it.
  • Now for moving in to your new place in Leicester! Do the same - write down the meter reading once you've located it.
