Who distributes electricity in Birmingham?

In case of an emergency, or if you have a very specific request regarding your energy provision, then you might need to get in touch with your distributor. In Birmingham, these are the numbers to ring should you need to get in touch. In short, a distribution network operator is in charge of making sure that electricity arrives to your home from its source, which is the national grid. Distribution network operators are regional, so different parts of the UK have different operators. We often don't know how to get in touch with our operator, since customers do not usually have to speak directly to them. That being said, we believe that Birminghamians should have all the information and contact details about their DNO available to them.

Scottish Power prices, dual fuel rates & tariffs in Birmingham

Scottish Power offer duel fuel tariff options to their customers, as well as single energy plans. However, people are moving away from single energy plans in favour of dual fuel. Dual fuel has so many benefits. Not only can you make pretty big savings each month with dual fuel, since suppliers tend to offer bundle deals to dual fuel customers, another benefit lies in the ease of management. Instead of having to manage your gas and electricity separately, dual fuel allows you to streamline your energy supply and keep everything in one place. Sounds good, right? Well, despite its increasing popularity, many households are still keeping things separate. In Birmingham, 98629 homes only have electric central heating systems, compared to 112448 who have just a gas system, while 158132 just choose oil. Read on to find out about Scottish Gas' dual fuel offerings.
