• Switching to us

  • Switching to us is simple and straightforward!

    There are a number of ways you can switch your gas and electricity supply to us, but the easiest way is to sign up on our website.

    Enter your postcode on our quick price calculator and click 'Get a price'. You'll get an estimated quote and details for each of our tariffs, making it easy to pick the right one for you. You can personalise this quote by adding information about things like your average usage. Just enter the details you know and click 'Update prices'.

    If you want to see more information about any of the tariffs or switch to one of them, click the 'More info' button. Once you're ready to switch, just click 'Apply' and fill in our simple online form.

    If you would rather speak to us, please give our specially trained advisers a call on 0345 026 7036*. They'll chat to you about our range of tariffs and help you choose the best one to suit your needs. We're open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, and 8am to 2pm Saturday.

    If you've already switched

    If you've chosen to join us, it normally takes 21 days to switch and we keep you informed every step of the way. We'll also make sure that you receive a pack which includes a copy of your contract along with our terms and conditions.

    Here's what happens when you switch

    Week one

    • Your application is underway. You can cancel your agreement without charge within 14 days from the day after the date you signed up to this tariff.

    Week two onwards

    • We'll let your current supplier know that you've chosen to switch to us. So you don’t have to worry about letting them know.
    • We'll be in touch during the process to keep you informed. We'll let you know the date your supply starts with us. If you've chosen to pay by Direct Debit, we’ll also confirm your bank details and the date we’ll start taking the Direct Debit payments from your bank account.
    • When we’re almost ready to start your supply with us, we’ll ask for your opening meter readings. Find out how to read your meter.
    • A few days before your supply starts with us, we’ll send you a confirmation letter which gives you lots of useful information on SSE Atlantic, our products and services. We've also included some useful contact numbers, if you need to speak to us.
    • That's it – you've started your supply with us!

    After your supply starts

    • We will send you a letter confirming that we are now supplying your energy.
    • If you chose a regular payment plan we'll start receiving payments on the date we've agreed with you. Details of this can be found in your confirmation letter.
    • We'll send your first bill within three months of you joining us.

    If you have any questions about the transfer process or how to cancel during your cancellation period, please call us on 0345 026 7036.*

  • Green Deal is now closed to new applications. However, if you already have a Green Deal agreement with us, any prices or discounts we quote don't include your Green Deal payments.
