Wondering who supplies your gas and electricity? Have you recently moved house or about to move into a new property?
Alternatively, if you'd like to find out this information yourself, here's how to go about it.
To find out who your gas supplier is, call the M Number Enquiry Helpline on 0870 608 1524, this is a service provided by xoserve Ltd. They will tell you who your gas supplier is and can also give you your MPRN number which you may sometimes need when switching to a cheaper gas tariff.
You can find out who your electricity supplier is by calling the local distribution company.
They should confirm the registered supplier and provide you with a contact number for the electricity provider by checking your address details and meter serial number (normally located on a sticker attached to the meter) on their records.
