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 Tyne and Wear is actually provided by Northern Gas Networks.

How to make the switch in Tyne and Wear?

Switching energy suppliers has never been so quick and easy. When you're moving home, you just need to ensure that you have followed a few quick steps to get going with your new energy plan in Tyne and Wear. * The most important thing to do when moving property is to take meter readings. When you leave your old place, as well as when you walk through the door of your new home, jot down the numbers you see on the meter. We also recommend taking a photo. This is just to ensure that you aren't overcharged for your energy by your supplier or your landlord. It doesn't matter if you are moving into a rented property or if you have just bought a new house, this is important to ensure you are paying the right amount. * Don't forget to contact your current energy supplier to let them know you are moving. If you don't know who currently supplies you with energy, either check a recent energy bill or follow the step-by-step guide we prepared for you. Your supplier might let you carry your energy plan over to your new home, but you will likely have to sign up to a new one, or start again. This is a great opportunity to switch suppliers and save a lot of money on your energy! Although, switching before the end of your contract (if you are on a fixed plan) might result in an exit fee, so make sure to check out the conditions of your plan so you aren't taken by surprise by any unforeseen charges. * Wondering how you will receive gas and electricity in your new home when you first move in? Well, if you don't organise your new energy plan ahead of the move, then you will be automatically put on a default contract, or a deemed contract, both of which tend to be expensive, so consider switching as soon as you can. Scottish Power have lot's of information online about switching over to one of their plans. However, if you want free, quick, and unbias 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.
