How to Connect Electricity to Your New House When Moving

Follow these 3 easy steps for stress-free moving
Let your current electricity supplier know you’re moving
It is important to contact your electricity provider before you even think about connecting electricity in your new home. You generally need to let them know 3 days in advance, so that they can perform a final metre reading and allow them time to provide you with a closing bill before you move. This will ensure you aren’t being charged for electricity use after you have moved!
Choose to stay with your current supplier or switch
If you wish to stay with your present electricity supplier, then simply open a new account when you close your old account with them. Remember to update all of your details that will be changing.
If you are looking to change your energy provider, look at several quotes and contact your preferred option to discuss their electricity plans. Create an account with your new energy provider, complete with all your new address details, contact details, proof of identification, etc.
Connect when it suits you
You are now ready to select an electricity connection day! Arrange for your power supply to be connected on the day that works best for you.
