Compare energy suppliers to find the best energy deals
If you have decided to compare energy suppliers and switch to the best energy deals online with our energy comparison site then read on to find out how the switching process works.
Get your latest energy bill We will need to know a bit about the details of your current provider. This includes the name of your tariff and how much you spend on electricity. You can find all this information on your most recent bills or the annual statement sent by your energy suppliers. If you don’t have your latest energy consumption available to you, our estimation tool can work it out for you based on your household information. If you are moving or have recently moved to a new house, you can also use our energy comparison tool using estimations to get accurate prices.
Choose a energy tariff Once you have entered your information, you will be taken to a page that displays a list of energy suppliers that offer you the best deal than the one that you are currently on. Once you have decided to switch and have chosen the tariff you wish to switch to you will be directed to a page with a switching form. Once you enter your details, you new energy supplier will calculate your new bill and send the details of the new reading to your old supplier who will then send you the final bill.
Check your energy balance Once the final bill is issued to you by your old supplier, you will be able to see whether or not you have a credit or debit balance and how you much money owe them. Here comes the best part. If you have not paid enough to cover the energy you have been using, or if you have fallen back with your energy bill for whatever reason, you will still be able to switch energy supplier as long as your debt does not exceed £500 and you will have to arrange a payment plan to pay your previous supplier what you owe them.
Switching period Confirming your switch takes only a few minutes, but the actual changeover process takes 21 days. This also includes a 14 day cooling off period in the event you change your mind and want to cancel the switch. As mentioned, the changeover process is easy and does not need a plumbing or re-wiring. Your new supplier and the old supplier will schedule a date between themselves and will notify you the date of the switch.
Switching to a credit meter? If you have a prepayment meter you can switch to a credit meter. The process is fast and straightforward. Realise that some suppliers charge to switch from prepayment meter. So be sure to contact your provider to find out if they charge for the prepayment meter change. If you can’t switch to a credit meter, consider switching to a prepayment tariff that offers a better deal.
