How do I power up my new home in Southampton?

Are you new to Southampton? If you are, welcome home! Moving house and a new town can be a huge point of change in your life. So, because of that, we want to let you in on a bit of information about where you're moving to. You never know, this information might even make you feel more at home.

How do I manage an energy transfer in Southampton?

In most cases, you can keep the same supplier when moving house, if you so wish. On our website, we offer a guide on how to manage an energy transfer. However, in this section, we will explain a few factors that can affect whether you will be able to keep your supplier or not. Such factors include:

  • ๐Ÿ’ฐ If your new property has a prepayment meter or not
  • ๐Ÿš— If you have moved far away from your original residence
  • ๐Ÿ’ก Whether your new property uses gas, electricity, or dual fuel
  • ๐Ÿก Whether you have upgraded/downgraded the size of your home.
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป The estimated energy consumption in your new home

All these factors affect the tariffs that will be available to you in your new home. When you move, especially if Southampton is far away from your original location, then it is possible that your tariff will be much more expensive than it previously was.
So, if your bill goes up in cost, we highly recommend that you switch energy suppliers and look at the best deal for your area.

Set up Scottish Power as your new supplier in Southampton

When moving to any city, such as Southampton, it can be difficult to get your head around all the things that have to be done. But, no need to worry, we have all the information you need.
Like with any big move, there are some steps that you need to complete before leaving your old home. For that reason, we have prepared a moving house checklist so that you won't leave anything behind. So, let's begin:

  • 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.
If you are moving into a property that is already connected to the grid, then the only thing you need to do is select a provider and tariff for your home. However, there is one thing you should be wary of when moving house: Whether you are moving into a new property or not, the house will 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.

Who distributes Southampton's energy?

Who is Southampton's gas distributor?

In Southampton your gas distributor is Northern Gas Networks.

Gas doesn't just appear out of thin air, instead, it is provided by a complex network of gas distribution. There are 8 gas distribution networks which are managed by 4 different gas distribution companies. Each company manages a different region. Customers do not usually have to get in touch with their gas distribution company, since suppliers are usually the point of contact.

How should I contact Southampton energy distributors?

You can call your local Hampshire electricity DNO (Distribution Network Operator) or gas distributor in case of emergency, power cuts or issues regarding their grid connection.
One connects the energy production sites to your region and the other one brings it to your home. And, let's be honest: The UK energy market wouldn't run as it does without them.
Build and operate a grid that is capable of carrying high-voltage electricity from any production site to any region without losing too much along the way. Nevertheless, it would be useless without the contribution of the 14 electricity and 8 gas DNOs that move energy from these major hubs to every single house in Hampshire and elsewhere.

If you would like to contact your DNO, their number is:

๐Ÿง Company name ๐Ÿ—ฃ Company number
UK Power Networks General Number 0800 029 4285
UK Power Networks Emergency Number 0800 31 63 105
Northern Gas Networks Number 0800 040 7766
Northern Gas Networks Emergency Number 0800 111 999

Who distributes Southampton electricity?

In Southampton your electricity distributor is UK Power Networks.

These are essentially the bodies that ensure that electricity arrives at your home or office from the National Grid. You don't need to know the ins and outs of exactly how electricity travels around the UK, as your supplier can usually provide you with information about energy distribution should you need it.
Distribution network operators are regional, so different parts of the UK have different operators. That being said, we believe that Southamptonians should have all the information and contact details about their DNO available to them.

What to do if you experience a power cut in Southampton?
