Switching to Scottish Power in Hackney

Last update: March 2021

Whether you are a new resident of Hackney, 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 Hackney:

  • Hackney is home to 66526 inhabitants.
  • 25436 households that make up Hackney.
  • Hackney 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.

Give Scottish Power a ring on if you would like to switch. Further contact details are provided below. To chat through your alternative energy options, then ring us up and have a chat with one of energy experts. Call us today on 0330 054 0018 and they can guide you.

How to set-up your Scottish Power contract in Hackney, London?

Have you just moved to Hackney? Lucky you! Whether you are recent Londoner or have lived in the area for a while now, you are now one of the 66526 inhabitants of Hackney, 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.

When it comes to switching energy suppliers . Just give us a ring on 0330 054 0018 and we will carry out a free price comparison service based on current tariffs on the market and your personal energy needs.

How expensive are Scottish Power's plans for the 25436 households across Hackney?

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 contact Scottish Power in Hackney?

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.

What tariffs do Scottish Power offer in Hackney?

Scottish Power offer dual fuel tariffs to their gas and electricity customers. This means that your gas and electricity supply will both be provided by the same supplier, on the same plan. At Switch Plan, we always recommend dual fuel, since not only do you save money through bundle deals offered by many suppliers, but you can also save so much time by centralising your gas and electricity in one tariff. Check out what Scottish Power has to offer below.

Energy distribution in Hackney

Who is in control of electricity distribution in Hackney?

Distribution network operators are in charge of distributing electricity around the UK. They are licensed by Ofgem to oversee electricity distribution and make sure it arrives safely in people's homes. Electricity is distributed around the country through a complex system of cables and towers before it arrives in your home. They differ depending on where you live. So, in Hackney, your DNO is UK Power Networks. The likelihood of you having to get in touch with your DNO is very low, since your supplier can usually provide you with all the answers to your energy questions. However, should you experience a powercut and need emergency assistance, or any other unforeseen event regarding your electricity supply, we have supplied you with their contact details below.

Who distributes gas to the 25436 households in Hackney?

Given that we only tend to liaise with our energy suppliers, most people don't know who their gas distribution network is. And to be honest, you will probably never need to get in touch with them. They are in charge of the distribution of gas around the country before it arrives in your home. There are 8 gas distribution networks which are then overseen by 4 gas distribution companies. Gas transportation needs pretty close management, given that gas leaks can be dangerous. If you experience a gas leak, then you will need to get in touch with your local gas distribution network and for that reason, we have laid out their contact details below. For your information, the gas distribution company in Hackney is Cadent Gas.
