Switching to an Scottish Power energy deal in Ealing
Last update: March 2021
Whether you are a new resident of Ealing, or have lived in the area for some time, you should probably know a bit about how gas and electricity is supplied to your home. First, let's outline some key facts about Ealing:
- Ealing is home to 193268 inhabitants.
- 65744 households that make up Ealing.
- Ealing is situated in the historic city of London.
We will provide the answers to these questions - and lot's more - on this page. Each household has very different gas and electricity requirements, however, so it's important to read more about Scottish Power tariffs before you switch, to ensure that you are on the best plan for you. If you tend to work from home, for example, you might need to choose an energy plan that is a bit cheaper to account for the energy you use. This is just one example to take into account when shopping around for plans.
On this page, you'll find out whether Scottish Power can provide the right energy for you. So, who are Scottish Power? You probably at least know their name, since they are such a massive energy supplier. In fact, they provide energy to over 32 million customers, having operated in the UK for over 118 years. They have grown to become one of the Big 6, alongside British Gas and SSE. However, they have recently faced some competition from smaller suppliers, like Bulb and Octopus, who provide cheaper plans. But we'll get into that.

How do I sign a Scottish Power contract in Ealing, London?
Have you just moved to Ealing? Lucky you! Whether you are recent Londoner or have lived in the area for a while now, you are now one of the 193268 inhabitants of Ealing, and you'll want to start fuelling up your home as soon as possible. That's where we come in. All we need from you is a few simple pieces of information before we can carry out your energy switch.
- Firstly, inform your supplier that you are moving house. This can be on their website, but it might be easiest to ring them up and chat to one of their advisers. If you don't know who supplies you with energy, check a recent energy bill, either online or through the post. Alternatively, head over to our home made article that will teach you how to find your supplier.
- Taking meter readings in both your old and new properties is very important to ensure that you aren't overcharged. If you don't note down how much you used, your supplier won't know when you stopped using energy in your previous residence, and when you started in your new place. If you are in a rented property, your landlord might take charge of this, but depending on who is in charge of your energy bills - as should be outlined on your tenancy agreement - you might be expected to send proof of your readings to your landlord.
- Our experts at Switch Plan know that your energy supply is very personal to you. That's why, in a quick 10 minute phone call, they will evaluate your energy needs and find you a plan that best sutis you and your household. If you haven't sorted out your energy supply before moving, then you will be automatically put on a default contract, which tend to be expensive. That's why switching is so important.

Are Scottish Power's energy plans cheap for residents of Greater London?
One of the main complaints, aside from bad customer service, about Scottish Power's energy was the cost of its tariffs. The Big 6 have famously expensive energy plans, resulting in lots of customers switching to smaller suppliers for their gas and electricity.
How can I get ahold of Scottish Power in Ealing?
If all goes smoothly and to plan, you very rarely need to get in touch with your energy supplier. However, if you need to complain, ask a specific question, or want to set up business energy for your place of work, then you will need to have your supplier's contact details to hand. Their advisers can usually advise you, and you can call specific numbers for specific queries.
Remember that our experts at Switch Plan are always here to talk through your energy options. We are available any time between 9am and 7pm, Monday to Friday, to discuss anything you might be unsure about.

Your energy distributors in Ealing
Who controls the energy grid in Ealing ?
If Ealing is currently in a power cut, you should ring the emergency phone number for your distributor, which is listed below. Distribution network operators oversee the management of cables and towers that connect the National Grid, which is in charge of connecting electricity supplies around the country, and they make sure this electricity arrives safely in your home or place of work. Londoners can give their local Greater London electricity DNO (Distribution Network Operator) a ring, or their gas provider in case of emergency or to request very up-to-date information about energy in the area. However, the likelihood of you having to get in touch with your DNO is pretty slim. Your supplier can usually provide you with all the information you need regarding your energy supply. Either way, their contact details can be found below.
Who is the gas distributor for the 65744 households in Ealing?
In Ealing, Cadent Gas is in charge of distributing your gas locally. If you wanted to get in touch with them for whatever reason, you can ring them on 0345 835 1111. However, you will probably never need to. Just like your DNO, they are in charge of more complex issues of national gas transportation. Gas doesn't just appear out of thin air in your home, remember. It is transported around the country through a complex system of pipes before it arrives at your front door. 8 gas distribution networks oversee the more regional distribution, which are then managed by 4 gas distribution companies. Remember, gas can be dangerous if mismanaged, so it's important that there is a lot of control.
