What happens once I’ve switched energy?

Switcher is a free service that handles the switching process for you. Once you’ve completed your energy switch, your new energy supplier will contact your old supplier and agree a switching date. You will then receive a welcome pack and letter from your new gas & electricity supplier. This will outline what you’ve agreed to, and tell you what happens next. There won’t be any interruption in your gas and electricity supply.

What do I need to get started?

Don’t worry if you don’t have one handy though - we can work out your gas and electricity usage by using the national average energy consumption.

The accreditation system provided by the CER can provide energy customers with the confidence to use price comparison websites, assisting them in comparing tariff offers and getting the best tariff deal.
