Switch for best value
You should look to switch your gas and electricity supplier once a year to make sure you’re always getting the best deal. Changing energy supplier is quick and easy and can save you hundreds of pounds!
When you start a tenancy with us, your supplier will be Scottish and Southern Energy (SWALEC). However, you don’t have to stay with them and can switch straight away if you wish.
If you are looking to change your supplier, the USwitch website can guide you through the process.
Getting a smart meter
Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters which will replace the traditional meters in homes across Wales, England and Scotland.
Every home will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier, at no extra cost, between now and 2020.
Smart meters enable you to see exactly how much energy you’re using as you use it, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. They take regular readings and share them with your energy supplier, putting an end to estimated bills and manual meter readings, making it easier for you to budget payments.
In future, smart meters will also make switching between suppliers, or between credit and prepay, quicker and easier. If you are a prepay customer, you will also be able to top up online or via mobile phone.
To find out when you can get a smart meter if you don’t have one already, contact your energy supplier.
