Who are my gas & electricity distribution network operators in Hertfordshire?

Who manages electricity distribution for the 202,020 households in Hertfordshire?

Firstly, it's important to know what a distribution network operator (DNO) is and does. In short, it is a company licenced by Ofgem to distribute electricity around the country. 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. In Hertfordshire, your DNO is UK Power Networks. You will probably never have to get in touch with them, but should you need to, their contact details are listed below. 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 distributes Hertfordshire's gas?

There are 4 gas distribution companies operating in the UK, which are further divided into 8 gas distribution networks. These networks and companies oversee the whole transportation system of gas around the country, which takes place in underground pipes. You have probably never had to think about how gas arrives at your front door, and for this reason, you've probably never had to get in touch with your gas distribution network. And you probably never will! However, since your gas supply is so fundamental to your living situation, it's important to have all the necessary contact details for the companies that oversee it. In Hertfordshire, Cadent Gas is in charge of your gas distribution.

How to make the switch to Scottish Power in Hertfordshire?

Switching energy suppliers may seem like a big deal, but in reality it's so easy. Switch Plan have made it quicker and simpler than ever. You just need to make sure that you follow a few simple instructions to get started with your new energy plan in Hertfordshire. * Taking energy meter readings in both your old and new properties is very important to ensure that you aren't overcharged. If you don't note down how much you used, your supplier won't know when you stopped using energy in your previous residence, and when you started in your new place. If you are in a rented property, your landlord might take charge of this, but depending on who is in charge of your energy bills - as should be outlined on your tenancy agreement - you might be expected to send proof of your readings to your landlord. * Let your supplier know that you are moving. If you don't know who supplies you with energy, check a recent energy bill, either online or through the post. Alternatively, head over to our dedicated guide and you'll find out everything you need about your energy supply . * Lastly, it's highly likely that you take on a 'deemed' contract in your new residence, which means that you will continue with the contract that the previous residents of the property had signed up to. You might like this plan, and want to stick with it! But chances are you will need to switch over to a different tariff to suit your energy needs better. Scottish Power have plenty of information on their website about switching over to one of their plans. However, if you want free, impartial information about making this switch, don't hesitate to give us a ring on 0300 054 0018 and we can talk you through the best plan for you.
