Energy Switching FAQ’s

Are there limits to how many times I can change supplier?

You may change suppliers as often as you like, but your old supplier may charge for cancellation or early termination if you don’t give sufficient notice or you cancel during the minimum term.

Can I revert my decision to change energy supplier?

Under consumer protection laws you have a statutory 14-day cooling-off period. Contact your new supplier if you should change your mind during this period and you can cancel the switch free of charge.

How soon can my energy switch be completed?

As per industry standard, it can usually take 7-14 days for your switch to be carried out. The time it takes for your switch to be completed will depend on the supplier, however, it shouldn’t take any longer than 28 days. Your new supplier will coordinate the switch with your old supplier. It’s important to make sure that you are out of contract with your current supplier before you sign up with a new supplier.

How will I know that my energy switch is complete?

You should receive a welcome pack and price plan information from your new supplier.

I've decided on a new energy supplier/deal - what's next?

So, you have found a new energy deal and submitted an application form to make the switch to a new supplier.

Once your new supplier receives and confirms your application, they’ll handle the switch with your old supplier, so you don’t need to worry about that. Remember, though, that if you decide to switch while you’re still on a discounted tariff with your current supplier, you will have to pay an early exit fee.

After your switch, you’ll receive a final bill from your old supplier, which you’ll need to pay to close your account. Once this is done, you should also ensure you cancel all Direct Debits to this supplier, too.

All energy suppliers use the same network and pipes to provide energy to your home, so you won’t have any interruption in supply.
