Have you just moved to a new property in the lovely Devon? Before you get started, here are some things you should know about energy in your new area. We know that your first priority might not be getting your energy up and running, so that’s why we want to sort it all out for you.

You probably want to know a bit about the energy supply in your new area. Devon is the 16th most populated county in the UK. A fair share of this population lives around the cities of Plymouth, Exeter, Paignton and Newton Abbot. Energy is distributed by Western Power Distribution to the 182,606 households that make up the whole county. British Gas have a large range of energy plans available for both new and existing customers. Whatever your energy needs, we’re sure British Gas would have something for you.

If you decide that British Gas is for you when you make the move over to Devon and want to join their 13 million other customers, you can ring up their number for new customers on 0333 202 9505. However, on this page we’ve outlined all the information you need about switching over to British Gas in Devon. So, if you decide you want an alternative energy plan, ring up one of our experts on 0300 054 0018 and they can guide you. Either way, we’ll make sure that you kick start your energy supply in Devon in no time.

How to make the switch?

Switching energy suppliers has never been so quick and easy. When you’re moving home, you just need to ensure that you have followed a few quick steps to get going with your new energy plan in Devon.

  1. Firstly, when you walk out the door of your old house, take a note of the meter reading for your records. Also leave that information in an easy place to find for the next residents of the property. This is to make a note of how much you used, and to stop you being accidentally overcharged by your provider.
  2. Next, do the same in your new home in Devon! Find the energy meter so you can jot down the reading. It’s possible that the supplier of your new property might request a meter reading to know when to start charging you for the energy you have used yourself. So make sure to keep a note of this so your supplier knows how much to charge you!
  3. Lastly, when you move house, you’ll probably inherit a ‘deemed’ contract. This means that you carry on the contract that the previous inhabitants of the property had agreed to. You might like this plan, and want to stick with it! But it’s likely that you will want to switch over to a different tariff, as your energy requirements will probably be very different. If you’re not sure who provides energy to your new house, or if the previous inhabitants of the house didn’t leave you a note with the energy information, you can simply visit Ofgem website to find out who your new supplier is.

British Gas have lot’s of information online about switching over to one of their plans. However, if you want free, quick, and unbias information about making this switch, don’t hesitate to give us a ring on 0330 054 0018 and we can talk you through the best plan for you.
