    This guide will give you all the information you need to ascertain who your current energy suppliers are and help you decide if the domestic or business energy deals they’re providing are right for you.

    Why might you need to find out who your utility supplier is?

    There are certain situations where you might not have information on who is supplying your energy. For example, if you’ve just moved house or if your business has opened an office in a new commercial premises, you might not be aware of who is currently supplying your gas and electricity until you receive a bill.

    Receiving a bill is never fun, but not knowing how much it will be, or who you’re paying can make the process even harder. By finding out who your gas and electricity supplier is, you can get in contact with them to either find out how much energy you’ve used so the bill won’t be a surprise, or switch to an alternative utility supplier.

    If you’re running a business, whether it’s small or large, it can be difficult to keep on top of utility bills. So, if you’re wondering how do I find my supplier? We have some simple tips and advice on how to clarify such issues.

    Taking a meter reading

    Waiting for a utility bill to arrive can cause numerous problems. The main one is that you may end up paying for the energy consumed before you moved into the property. To avoid this, you should take a meter reading on the day you arrive, which can then be submitted to your utility supplier to clarify exactly how much energy you have used since moving in.

    As a result, this will let the gas and electricity suppliers know that they need to notify and bill the previous tenant or landlord, rather than you. So, once your utility bill arrives, you’ll have peace of mind that you’re only paying for the energy you’ve consumed.

    Utility bills

    Deemed contracts

    Another problem is that you’re likely to be on a ‘deemed contract’ with the previous resident’s gas and electricity supplier until you arrange the best deal for you. A deemed contract is a type of energy contract that is put in place when someone moves into a new property or when a contract expires but gas and electricity continues to be used.

    The rates charged on deemed contracts are on average 80% higher than those charged on negotiated deals. Finding out who your utility supplier is and what rates you are on will allow you to compare their tariffs with the rest of the market and will help you avoid overpaying for your utilities.

    How to find out who is my gas and electricity supplier?

    Of course, in many cases, the landlord, letting agent or previous owner or tenant may be able to tell you who their utility supplier was.

    If the previous resident has contacted their gas and electricity supplier to inform them of the move, the energy company will usually send a letter addressed to ‘the Occupier’. This should provide details of your current energy plan and who your utility supplier is.

    However, if you cannot get this information from anyone involved in the move and the previous resident didn’t tell the gas and electricity supplier about the move, you’ll need to take other steps.

    How to find my gas supplier?

    So, how do I find my gas supplier? Whether you’ve just moved into your new home or you’re setting up shop in a new business property, you can find out who supplies your gas by phoning the Meter Number Helpline on 0870 608 1524. Calls to this number will cost 7p per minute, plus your phone provider’s access charge.

    Alternatively, you can also use the Meter Point Administration’s quick and easy internet search facility, Find My Supplier. This service will also tell you your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN), which is used to inform your gas and electricity supplier of the location of your meter.

    Once you know your utility supplier, you can get in touch with them to discuss your tariffs. Following this, you can start shopping around to see if you can get a better price.

    How to find my electricity supplier?

    If you’re unsure of who is your electricity supplier, then  you can use the Energy Networks Association postcode search tool.

    You can also get in touch with your regional distribution network operator (DNO). This organisation owns and is responsible for maintaining the power lines and infrastructure that connects homes, businesses, and other organisations in your area to the electricity transmission network.

    When you call them, ask for the Meter Point Administration Service (MPAS). Using your address and postcode, they’ll be able to find out who your existing electricity supplier is. They can also provide you with the Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) for your property. This may be required if you decide to switch suppliers.

    Can I save money by switching utility suppliers?

    If you’re on a deemed contract, you’re likely to be paying significantly higher rates for your energy supply than you would be if you were on a fixed contract or a competitive variable rate.

    You should make it a priority to check your current rates against other deals and utility suppliers. Neglecting to do this could mean that you end up paying more than necessary for your gas and electricity.

    How do I switch gas and electricity suppliers

    Once you have the details of your utility supplier and the rates you’re paying for gas and electricity, you can start shopping around for a more competitive deal. You can find the best offers on business energy quickly and easily using our comparison service.

    Businesses of all are becoming more conscious of their environmental footprint. So why not switch to , who will not only give you a great deal on your utilities, but also improve your green credentials?
