How to choose a new power plan for your new home

How to choose a new power plan for your new home
Monday, January 18, 2021

If you’re moving house soon, there is probably a lot on your to do list! Don’t take the wrong power plan with you when you move house. Electricity and gas are likely to be one of your biggest expenses when it comes to utilities and bills, so this is a great time to compare the options and find opportunities to save on your bills.

Top tips for getting power sorted in your new home

Take a meter reading when you move in

Take a meter reading when you move in and have it ready to share with your power provider when you set up the account for your new home.  

Find out who the current provider is

If you haven’t had a chance to sort your power before you move in, find out who the current power provider is as soon as possible and tell them you have moved in.

When you first move into your new home, it will likely be supplied (so you can switch on the lights). From the date you take ownership, or the date your rental tenancy starts you will be responsible for paying for any power used to the existing provider.

You don’t have to stay with the existing power provider

You don’t have to stay with the existing provider when you move into a new home – you are free to choose a new one. Your top priority is to compare power providers and switch to the best deal to avoid inheriting an expensive tariff.

Compare power providers to find the best deal for your address
