The quickest way to discover who provides your electricity and gas, if you’ve just moved in, is to ask the landlord or agency that is renting you the property. It may also be possible to ask the previous occupier, if you are able to contact them.
It is also likely that the tenant before you will have notified the energy company that they were moving on. If this is the case then you will be likely to receive a letter addressed to “the occupier”. From this letter it will become clear who your energy supplier is.
If you haven’t recently moved in, or if you have but you haven’t received the letter described above, then you must contact the Helplines above so that you can find out the details of the energy plan that the company has put you on.
It is common practice amongst energy suppliers to automatically place new occupants onto their “Standard Plans”. These plans are often more expensive than the alternatives offered by your supplier.
There are plenty of ways to achieve discounts or to save money by comparing what other plans are on offer. It is also often advisable to look outside of your current energy provider to see what deals other companies are offering. You can do this by using our quick, free and impartial energy comparison service.
Once you’ve worked out which energy plan you’ve been placed on, you will be able to work out how much this deal will be costing you. The deal that you have automatically been placed on is unlikely to be the most competitive rate that is available to you.
