    Switching FAQs

    I have just switched to ScottishPower. What happens next?

    Thank you for choosing ScottishPower. We'll contact you shortly to confirm that we've received your application.

    As soon as we've received your application, we'll start the registration process. This can take up to 3 weeks and is usually made up of three stages:

    • Application & Registration: We review your application and check it against the information we receive from your current supplier. You'll receive a Welcome letter from us, which contains important contractual and other information to guide you through your switch, including information about your right to cancel your contract if you have changed your mind. To help make YourEnergy choices clear and simple, we'll include a comparison of your chosen ScottishPower tariff to your previous one, as well as important information about your tariff. We'll also set up your own personalised webpage on our website so you can track the progress of your switch - you'll find details of this in your welcome letter. We'll then send a request to your current supplier, so that we can start the switching process. Your current supplier has a right to object to the switch in certain circumstances, for example if they have billed you for an amount that you have not paid. If this happens, we will we write to you and let you know - unless the objection is resolved, we can't complete your switch.
    • Billing Set-up: Once your current supplier accepts the switch, we will start to set up your new account with us. We'll ask you for your opening meter readings so we can open this correctly. These should be provided within the timescale specified in your Welcome letter, normally between 5 days before and 5 days after your given supply start date.
      You can provide your reading through your personalised website or by calling our 24 hour automated service on 0800 027 5002.
    • On Supply: Once your account has been set up, we'll officially welcome you as a new ScottishPower customer and will receive an email or letter confirming that your switch is now complete.
    Why do you need my MPAN and/or MPRN numbers?

    Your Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) and Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN) are unique numbers used to identify your supply point for electricity and gas respectively. We need to make sure that we take over the correct supply when you switch to ScottishPower and the MPAN and / or MPRN help us to do this. If we don't have the correct MPAN or MPRN number when we start your switch, this may mean that we don't switch over the correct supply point. Your MPAN and MPRN number should be detailed in your most recent energy bill and are also normally located on your meter.

    Can ScottishPower supply my home with both gas and electricity?

    If you take the same tariff and payment method on both fuels, you can manage both fuels through a single account - we call this a dual fuel account. This means that you will receive a single bill for both fuels and make a single payment for both fuels rather than a separate one for each fuel.

    Who can I contact if I have any questions about my application?

    There are a number of contact options, depending on your question. You'll find a number of the most frequently asked questions listed in the Customer Services section of the website.

    If you can't find the answer to your question you can Contact Us and we'll be happy to help.

    I’ve just applied to switch to ScottishPower but I’ve changed my mind and want to cancel. What do I do?

    We hope you’ll be very happy with your decision to switch to ScottishPower. Your welcome letter is full of information to help you decide if you’ve made the right choice for you.

    However, if you’ve changed your mind and want to cancel your contract you must tell us within your cooling off period, which ends 14 days from the day after you receive your welcome letter. If you do this, we’ll do what we can to stop your supply switching to us or, if the switch has already taken place, we’ll transfer you back to your previous supplier as if you have never left them.

    You can find details of how to cancel here.

    How do I change the payment method/tariff on my account?

    Comparing energy deals

    As you know, gas cost and electricity prices vary between suppliers and locations. And the cheap electricity and gas prices UK suppliers offer today don't always come with long-term certainty.

    So when you are doing a gas or electricity comparison, there are a few things to keep in mind.

    What to look for when comparing tariffs

    Many people will ask how much does gas cost or is electricity cheaper when trying to analyse relative costs between companies. These are hard questions to answer because rates are based on a lot of different factors.

    One of the things you will notice when doing an electricity comparison is that prices may vary from one supply area to another. Those who live in central London may pay a different electricity rate per kWh than those living in the eastern London or south Wales supply areas for example.

    For example, when you compare electricity deals, you may simply choose the cheapest electricity tariff around – but is the overall cost of your electricity cheaper with this tariff? This can depend on additional factors, such as the way you choose to manage your account or the way you want to pay for your electricity supply.

    Find our best deal for you in minutes

    If you’re looking for cheap electricity or gas, we’ve made it easy to find a deal that suits you and your budget. In just a couple of minutes, online or over the phone, we can help you find your best option – whether you’re looking for our cheapest tariff today or for long-term certainty over your electricity and gas cost with a fixed price tariff.
