Who Supplies My Gas and Electricity
How to find out your gas and electricty supplier
If you have recently purchased your first property or you’re about to move home, whether as a home owner or tenant, you may be asking yourself – Who is my gas and electricity supplier? There are a number of ways that you can find out which energy supplier you’re currently with and whether you’re getting the best deal available.
Who is my gas supplier?
I have just moved home and need to find out who supplies my gas or electricity
If you have recently moved to a new property, the quickest way to find out who is your energy supplier is to speak to either the landlord, letting agent, or previous owner/tenant of the property.
You may also receive a letter addressed to ‘The Occupier’, if the previous tenant or home owner has notified their gas and electricity supplier that they’re moving.
This letter will give you information about the gas, electricity, or dual fuel supplier. Once you have these details, it’s time to take the next steps moving forwards.
If you move to a new property, most energy suppliers are likely to place you on one of their ‘Standard Plans’, these are often the most expensive tariffs.
A ‘Standard’ Plan is the energy provider’s default plan, these plans may not provide you with any discounts through the use of a dual-fuel tariff, usage of an online account, or paying through Direct Debit instalments.

Once you are aware of who supplies the energy to your new property you will be able to switch to a tariff that is more in line with your needs, and in many cases something more cost effective.
