Switching to Scottish Power in Merton

Last update: March 2021

Whether you are a new resident of Merton, 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 Merton:

  • Merton is home to 95534 inhabitants.
  • 35473 households that make up Merton.
  • Merton 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.

Starting a Scottish Power account in Merton, London

If you've just moved to Merton, there are some steps you must follow to start powering up your new home! Whether you have been a resident of Merton 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.

Switching your energy provider is easier than it sounds, so don't be put off! Switch Plan makes it easy. 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.
