But before we get into the details of energy switching, let's learn a little bit about living in Waltham Forest. You probably know that it is located in the busy city of London. You probably don't know, however, that it is home to 195228 inhabitants who live across 72042 households. Each household has very different energy requirements, depending on the size of their property, the number of inhabitants in the property and the average consumption of energy. For example, do you tend to work from home? Are you an avid chef? All of these things affect how much energy you use.

So, can Scottish Power provide the energy you need? Well, having been operating in the UK for 118 years, they are certainly well-versed in UK energy provision. They have a range of plans on offer which they currently provide to over 32 million customers. Although they are based in Glasgow in Scotland, they supply energy to homes all over the UK. Because of their long history and loyal customer base, Scottish Power have grown to become one of the 6 largest energy suppliers in the UK - or one of the 'Big 6'.

How do I sign a Scottish Power contract in Waltham Forest, London?

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

Your energy distributors in Waltham Forest

Who controls the energy grid in Waltham Forest ?

If Waltham Forest 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 72042 households in Waltham Forest?

Just like with electricity, knowing exactly how gas is distributed around the country isn't strictly necessary. But it might be useful! Before gas reaches your home from your supplier, it is actually distributed around the country through a complex system of underground pipes, which are overseen and managed by 8 different gas distribution networks. These networks are managed by 4 gas distribution companies. You will probably never need to get in touch with either, just like your local DNO, but why not have their contact details just in case? For your information, gas is provided by Cadent Gas in Waltham Forest. If you wanted to get in touch with them for whatever reason, you can ring them on 0345 835 1111.
