Our guide to finding the optimum market prices

The energy giants want you to renew at higher rates because these are at least 30% higher than if you receive a quote from one of their competitors. Even if we provide rates from your current supplier, they'll be lower than your renewal letter!

We've saved some companies hundreds of thousands of pounds per year, just by auditing their current energy bills to lower their overall kilowatt hour unit rates.

We also take care of all the formalities for you. Our customer advisors and professional commercial utility brokers are here to help should you have any concerns about switching.

Frequently asked questions

How does the journey for transferring suppliers work?

Choosing a new commercial electricity supplier

Select the tariff that offers the best deal for you by using our comparison calculator. Uncover all the information about the suppliers and tariffs on the results page. You can search by price, customer service rating or green tariffs.

You can choose from the following companies: British Gas, CNG, Corona, Eon, EDF, Npower, Opus, Powergen, SSE, Scottish Hydro, ScottishPower, Shell Gas, or Total Energy.

Once you've chosen your new tariff, provide us with your consumption data that forms the basis of your contract. We'll pass these to your new supplier who'll then arrange the switch.

You'll be sent an email to confirm the details of the switch and a contact point for your new supplier.

Within four weeks of your application, you'll receive a resource transfer date for the transfer of contracts. You should take a meter reading and send it to your new and current supplier for an accurate transfer and to calculate your final bill.

Will there be any interruption to my supply?

Energy supplies to businesses when switching

No, there'll be no interruption at all. There's no need to change any meters, wires or pipes as your new supplier uses the same ones as your old supplier. The only change you'll notice is a lower bill.

If I want a Direct Debit tariff, do you need my personal details?

No, you can request a paper Direct Debit form that your new supplier will post to you. You can then fill out your bank information and return it to them in your own time. In any event, we would recommend that you complete Direct Debit forms online on our secure servers as this will save you time in the long run.

How can I save as much money as possible?

Select the tariff you're on with your current supplier. Enter your figures into the calculator and submit your search with the default settings. Your quotes show all options with the cheapest supplier listed at the top of the results table. You'll see the savings made against your current contract clearly displayed.

I'm not sure who my current supplier is; how do I find out?

A recent fuel bill shows the name of your current supplier.

What is my electricity meter number (or MPAN)?

Meter number (MPAN)

Your Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) is the unique identifying number of the electric meter at your property. The sequence, often referred to as a "Resource Number" or "S" number, is printed on your utility bill or meter. If you can't locate your number, you should contact your supplier. We have a special system on the site that looks up your meter number automatically for 98% of UK addresses.

Contact Transco's Meter Number Helpline on 0870 608 1524 to find your gas Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN).

Our promise to you

By switching from your current deal, you can save up to 60% on your costs. If you haven't looked at your prices for more than one year, then you're guaranteed to make savings even though the wholesale price has increased.
