Who is your distribution network operator in Orkney?

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 Orkney, your DNO is SSE. 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 is the main gas distributor in Orkney?

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 Orkney, SGN is in charge of your gas distribution.

How to make the switch in Orkney?

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! A historic supplier, Scottish Power have a lot of information for their customers on their website. However, for free, unbias information about switching suppliers, our experts are here to help. Don't hesitate to give us a ring on 0300 054 0018 and we can talk you through the best plan for your economic and environmental requirements as a household.
