How to set-up your Scottish Power contract in Kingston upon Thames, London?

If you've just moved to Kingston upon Thames, there are some steps you must follow to start powering up your new home! Whether you have been a resident of Kingston upon Thames for a while now, or are a new Londoner, follow these steps to set up your gas and electricity.

  • When you leave your old place, as well as when you walk through the door of your new home, jot down the numbers you see on the meter. We also recommend taking a photo The most important thing to do when moving property is to take meter readings. This is just to ensure that you aren't overcharged for your energy by your supplier or your landlord. It doesn't matter if you are moving into a rented property or if you have just bought a new house, this is important to ensure you are paying the right amount.
  • Don't forget to contact your current energy supplier to let them know you are moving. If you don't know who currently supplies you with energy, either check a recent energy bill or head over to the Ofgem website where you can find out. Your supplier might let you carry your energy plan over to your new home, but you will likely have to sign up to a new one, or start again. This is a great opportunity to switch suppliers and save a lot of money on your energy! Although, switching before the end of your contract (if you are on a fixed plan) might result in an exit fee, so make sure to check out the conditions of your plan so you aren't taken by surprise by any unforeseen charges.
  • Wondering how you will receive gas and electricity in your new home when you first move in? Well, if you don't organise your new energy plan ahead of the move, then you will be automatically put on a default contract, or a deemed contract, both of which tend to be expensive, so consider switching as soon as you can.

We told you it was easy! Now that you have all the information you'll need to provide to our experts, you can ring us up and we can start the switching process.

If all goes smoothly and to plan, you very rarely need to get in touch with your energy supplier.

Their advisers can usually advise you, and you can call specific numbers for specific queries.
