What might your new bill look like?

Once you switch, your energy bill can come in a number of forms. It’s up to your new provider to decide which format to use.  Depending on the supplier you choose, you may get a single bill from us or your supplier, or two bills, one from us for delivery and the other from your supplier for electric supply. 

Stay up to date with pricing changes

Periodically, you’ll want to contact your energy supplier and reassess your contract. Prices can change, introductory offers expire and service can vary. It’s a good idea to shop around every year or two to evaluate new offers.

Just in case: Dropping your supply company

Check your supplier contract for termination provisions and fees, then contact your supplier to start the process. The supplier will notify us, and we will send you a notification letter with the appropriate next steps.

Know who to call
