Switching to Scottish Power in Essex

Don't be fooled into thinking that switching energy suppliers is difficult or disruptive. It's actually incredibly easy, especially with our Switch Plan service. There are just a few things you need to make sure you do before giving us a ring.

  • Whether you are moving into a rented property or you are a new homeowner, you should always take a energy meter reading before you leave your last property. This is so that your energy supplier - or your landlord - doesn't overcharge you for energy you haven't actually used. We recommend taking photos and writing it all down to keep a record of this information.
  • Moving into your new property also requires you to take a meter reading. Again, take a photo and jot down the numbers on the meter. If you don't know how to read your meter, check out our handy guide which will walk you through it.
  • You also need to contact your current supplier to let them know that you are moving property. Whether you intend to carry your current energy plan over from your previous residency, or you are looking to switch suppliers (which we recommend!), you should always inform your current supplier about this change. Remember, if you are ending a fixed contract before the end of your contract, you might face an exit fee depending on your supplier! If you don't know who your supplier is, check a recent bill, or head over to the our dedicated guide and find out who your supplier is.
  • If you want to sort out your energy supply before you move, then that's great. However, don't worry if you don't get round to it - you won't be left without gas and electricity! You will inherit a deemed contract, which means that you will simply start up on the energy plan that the previous residents of your new property had chosen. Or, you might be on a default contract, however be careful as these tend to be much more expensive, so you'll want to switch ASAP!

A historic supplier, Scottish Power have a lot of information for their customers on their website. However, for free, unbias information about switching suppliers, our experts are here to help. 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.

Who is the main gas distributor in Essex?

In Essex, the gas distribution company is Cadent Gas. Since we tend to speak to our energy suppliers for any queries about gas and electricity, we don't usually have to contact our gas distributors. They manage the transportation of gas through underground pipes before it eventually arrives with our suppliers. In short, gas doesn't just appear out of thin air! Should you need to get in touch with your gas distribution network, we have provided their contact details below. There are 4 gas distribution companies that operate in different regions in the UK. Underneath these companies, there are 8 gas distribution networks that operate on a more local level to manage your gas provision.

Who distributes electricity to Essex's 179,792 households?

In Essex your Distribution Network Operator (DNO) is UK Power Networks. But what exactly is a DNO? In short, Ofgem licenses certain companies to be in charge of distributing electricity around the UK. These companies oversee the management of cables and towers that link up the electricity supply in the UK - also known as the National Grid - and make sure this electricity arrives safely in your home or place of work. You might never need to get in touch with them, but should you experience a powercut, or need some advice about a technical query, then you should consult the contact details laid out below.
