Setting up an OVO Energy account in Cardiff

Whether you're new to the area or not, you are now one of the 372,156 inhabitants in Cardiff. Did you know that Cardiff is the $city_ranking_county biggest city of your South Glamorgan and 11st of the county. It's likely that you live with 2.41 due to local averages, so you'll need to power up your new home ASAP.

  • Firstly, take a meter reading just before you move out of your old house and keep the note in a safe place. You might need to provide this to your previous supplier, as you'll want to make sure that you're not paying for the energy of the new inhabitants of the house.
  • Now that you've arrived in Cardiff you should do the same thing. Find the meter in your new house and jot down the reading.
  • It's possible you will take on a โ€˜deemedโ€™ contract, which you will stay on until you decide to switch. The previous resident of the house usually leaves details concerning their energy supplier but if they didn't, fear not. The Ofgem website can help you find out who supplies the gas and electricity to this new home.

Switching energy suppliers sounds scary but with Switch Plan it really is as easy as it gets. Just call us on 0330 054 0018. We'll evaluate your needs based on your current consumption, budget and living arrangements which plan is best for you.

OVO's prices, dual fuel rates & tariffs in South Glamorgan

In our current economy, dual fuel is certainly a preferable option. Why is this? Well, not only is dual fuel a hell of a lot more simple, since you can streamline all of your gas and electricity supplier with just one plan, it also works out cheaper most of the time. This is because many suppliers offer discounts for their dual fuel customers, as they want to encourage customers to receive both their gas and electricity supply from them. Despite these pretty clear advantages of dual fuel, in Cardiff, 11.41% homes only have electric central heating systems, compared to 86.01% who have just a gas system, while 0.29% just choose oil.
