FAQ about switching electricity companies

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers about what happens after you have completed the comparison process and decided that you want to switch electricity companies .

If you change your mind it's okay because your new electricity company provides you a ten-day 'cooling-off' period, which means you have ten days to change your mind and stay with your old energy company .
No, definitely not! The actual delivery of energy to your house, via the pipes and wires, is done by an energy distributer (not your energy retailer). The distributor will continue to supply the electricity to your house even after you switch over to another energy retailer. The retailer issues your electricity bills, but they purchase energy from the distributor and resell it to you. You can't buy electricity directly from your distributor, you must go through an energy retailer. You can be certain that when you switch retailers, there won't be any interruption to your electricity supply because the connection to the distributor will continue to be the same as before.
All the 'paperwork' is processed very quickly, usually within 24 hours. But the final switchover will not go ahead until your current company has issued you a final bill, and they can't do that until they've done your final meter reading. So, it depends on when your meter is next due to be read. It be up to three months.
We'll sign you up with the new energy company , and we notify your present provider that you are switching away from them. The actual change in companies won't happen immediately, because your current company will need to read your meter one final time. and then issue you a final bill. Your new company starts charging you from the date that the meter is read. the energy distributor that feeds the energy to your home will continue to be the same one as before the switch.
No. Our service is free to you. We will, however, receive a commission from the new electricity company .

Tips to lower your electricity consumption to save money

Here is a list of easy to implement ways to reduce your electricity consumption

  • A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
  • Minimise draughts. Stop hot or cold air getting in or getting out through the gaps under doors or around your windows by using door snakes and gap seal tape.
  • Avoid usage of your clothes dryer. Instead, hang your clothes to dry outside or use an indoor clothes rack.
  • Turn off appliances at the power point when you're not using them.
  • Rather than turn on the heater, dress for cold weather (warm socks, booties, jumper, beanie).
  • Use less lighting. Use natural lighting where possible, and replace older lighting with LED lights.
  • Use less air conditioning by opening windows at night to let the house cool down, then closing them each morning to keep hot air out.
  • Prevent the hot sun from over-heating your home by closing blinds and curtains in rooms into which the hot sun directly shines in.
  • Close the doors to rooms that you aren't using, so that you only heat or cool a smaller space.
