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, which will be able to tell you the name of your property’s current gas supplier, as well as your meter point reference number (MPRN). You may need to know your MPRN if you wish to switch to a cheaper gas tariff.
You can find out who your electricity supplier is by calling the local distribution company - the number for which can be found in the table below.

Your local distributor will be able to confirm the registered electricity supplier for your property, and provide you with a contact number for them. You may need to provide your electricity point administration number (MPAN), which you can usually find on a sticker attached to your electricity meter. It may be useful for you to make note of this number for future reference.
Remember, if you have recently moved house, there's a good chance that you will have been automatically placed onto your supplier’s more expensive ‘standard’ variable tariff - as this is general market practice. Standard tariffs tend to be the most expensive, which means that you could stand to save money simply by switching to a differnet energy deal or supplier.
