Switch Energy Suppliers

Is switching energy supplier difficult?

Not at all. In the vast majority of cases, you won’t need to do anything beyond confirming your details online; the process of switching energy suppliers has been greatly simplified over recent years. Your supply will be automatically transferred on the given date – you won’t even notice it’s happened. All that will change is your direct debit and the company you speak to if you experience an issue; everything else remains exactly as it has been before.

Can I switch energy supplier if I rent my home?

There should be no problems regarding this on the supplier’s side, though it is always worth checking your rental agreement to ensure you have permission to do this. If in any doubt, call your landlord just to be sure.

What if I change my mind?

When you choose to switch energy providers, you benefit from a 14-day “cooling off” period that allows you to cancel the switch if you decide to do so. If you choose to activate this, you will be able to continue with your existing tariff – or switch to a different one – without incurring any additional charges.

Will I be charged to switch suppliers?

Potentially. If you are still in-contract with your existing supplier, then there is a chance they will be able to charge you an “exit fee” – the exact amount will depend on your contract terms and conditions. If you are concerned you may be asked to pay an exit fee, speak with your existing supplier and ask when this period expires, and then diarise a reminder to consider switching your energy supplier after this date.

It is also worth noting that some suppliers will offer to pay your exit fee from your existing contract. Suppliers offer this to attract new customers, and it could well be worth taking advantage of their generosity if the option is available.
