Who is the energy distributor in London?

Who distributes electricity in London?

In London your electricity distributor is UK Power Networks.

A distribution network operator is responsible for the cables and towers which carry electricity across the UK and make up the electricity distribution system. Electricity starts in the national transmission network and ends up (if all goes to plan) in your home or office, where you can use it. The fact that customers donโ€™t deal directly with their distribution network operator means that most of us have no idea how the system works or who the distribution network operators even are. That being said, it might be important to know how to get in touch with your local DNO in London .

How can I contact London's energy distributor?

Inhabitants of Greater London can call their local Greater London electricity DNO (Distribution Network Operator) or gas distributor in case of emergency, power cuts or issues regarding their grid connection.

How to power up your new home in London?

Now that you're settling into London, let us be the first to give a warm welcome. Moving to a new town, large or small, can be full of surprises. So, in order to minimise the amount of change you will be experiencing, we want to welcome you to London.

Who you should contact when moving to London?

Moving house in London is a big deal and there are various organisations that you should call in order to make your move as smooth as possible. These organisations are the following but are not limited to the following:

  1. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš–๏ธ Government/local bodies: Once you move in, you'll need to update your address with the DVLA.
  2. ๐Ÿฆ Banks and financial institutions: Make sure that you update your address on your debit and credit cards.
  3. ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ผ Insurance providers: To keep your cards from becoming invalid, make sure to update your address on your insurance cards.

Setting up Scottish Power in London as your new supplier

  • ๐Ÿšจ The most important thing to do before moving house is to take a meter reading so that you are not paying for energy that you haven't used.
  • โ›ฝ๏ธ After you have found your meter reading, it's time to sort out your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN).
  • ๐Ÿ’ฐ Once your MPRN is sorted, then you are clear to move without having to worry about paying for energy that you didn't use.
However, if your new home is connected to the grid, all you will need to do is select the provider of your choice with the tariff. When you move in, you will need to be aware that you'll be put under a deemed contract.
We suggest that you switch out of the deemed contract of your new home as soon as possible because it is usually more expensive than your typical tariff.

How to transfer energy suppliers to your new home in London?

There are some factors that will affect your energy tariffs in your new town, whether it be London or not. We provide an extensive guide to these factors in our guide on how to complete an energy transfer that is useful in Greater London. But, for the purpose of this section, we will list some of these factors so you can get started:

  • ๐Ÿ’ฐ If you use a prepayment meter or not
  • ๐Ÿš— How far you have moved from your original property
  • ๐Ÿ’ก What type of energy your new property uses (gas, electricity, dual fuel, etc.)
  • ๐Ÿก The size of your new home
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป How much energy your new home consumes?
After examining these factors, if you find out that your bill will go up in cost, it might be best to switch energy suppliers.
