How do I switch my energy suppliers?

Most energy suppliers have a range of competitive plans available to consumers looking to switch their current provider.

People go through the hassle of changing their current energy suppliers with money saving goal in mind.

What do you need to get your energy supplier switch process under way?

Details of your current tariff

It is important that you go through your recent bill of your gas and electricity and have your usage or monthly spending information ready. You can pull these figures out from your annual statement as well.
If you are finding it difficult to read your statements from your energy supplier, you can choose to call to speak to a customer service adviser.
Please note that in case you haven’t got your gas/electricity statement available to you, you can still compare the tariffs using a comparison tool like MyEnergy.

Exit fees from your provider

Make sure you know exactly what to expect when you decide to stop your custom with your existing gas and electricity providers. Bear in mind that the savings to be made after you have switched, will cover the necessary outgoings.

To speed up with the energy suppliers switch process, you will need to settle the outstanding bills with your previous provider.

Your postcode, Bank details

Once you have established the above, all you need is your postcode and bank details should you want to finalise your energy plan switch.
