How to make the switch to Scottish Power in Greater Manchester?

Don't be fooled into thinking that switching energy suppliers is difficult or disruptive. It's actually incredibly easy, especially with our Switch Plan service. There are just a few things you need to make sure you do before giving us a ring.

  • Whether you are moving into a rented property or you are a new homeowner, you should always take a energy meter reading before you leave your last property. This is so that your energy supplier - or your landlord - doesn't overcharge you for energy you haven't actually used. We recommend taking photos and writing it all down to keep a record of this information.
  • Moving into your new property also requires you to take a meter reading. Again, take a photo and jot down the numbers on the meter. If you don't know how to read your meter, check out our handy guide which will walk you through it.
  • You also need to contact your current supplier to let them know that you are moving property. Whether you intend to carry your current energy plan over from your previous residency, or you are looking to switch suppliers (which we recommend!), you should always inform your current supplier about this change. Remember, if you are ending a fixed contract before the end of your contract, you might face an exit fee depending on your supplier! If you don't know who your supplier is, check a recent bill, or head over to the our dedicated guide and find out who your supplier is.
  • If you want to sort out your energy supply before you move, then that's great. However, don't worry if you don't get round to it - you won't be left without gas and electricity! You will inherit a deemed contract, which means that you will simply start up on the energy plan that the previous residents of your new property had chosen. Or, you might be on a default contract, however be careful as these tend to be much more expensive, so you'll want to switch ASAP!

The distribution network operator is responsible for the cables and towers which transport electricity from the national transmission network (the National Grid) and supplying it to homes and businesses.

If you are experiencing a powercut, or need help with a more technical query than your supplier can assist with, then get in touch with your DNO.

Who is the main gas distributor in Greater Manchester?

Ever wondered how gas actually arrives in your home? Well, before gas can actually reach you, it is transported through a complex system of pipes. These pipes form the Gas Distribution Network in the UK, of which there are 8. These are then controlled by 4 gas distribution companies. Gas doesn't appear out of thin air. Instead, it appears at your home after travelling through a pretty complex system of pipes that transport it all around the UK. These pipes are overseen by 4 gas distribution companies around the UK, which are further divided into 8 gas distribution networks across the UK. We don't tend to consider how gas actually arrives at our stove, radiator and pipes. For this reason, we don't usually have to get in touch with our local gas distribution company or our gas distributor. But, if you happened to be interested, your gas in Greater Manchester is actually provided by Cadent Gas.

Should you experience a powercut, or simply need some up-to-date information about energy in Greater Manchester, contacting your District Network Provider is your best bet.
