FAQ about switching electricity providers

Here are some questions and answers about what happens once you've completed the comparison process and you have made the decision that want to switch electricity providers.

If you change your mind that's okay because your new electricity provider has to give you ten days of 'cooling-off' period, which means that you have ten days to change your mind and stay with your old energy provider.
No. The delivery of actual energy to your house, via the pipes and wires, is done by your energy distributer (not by your energy retailer). The distributor will continue to supply the electricity to your premises after you change to a different energy retailer. It is the retailer that issues your electricity bills, however, they buy the energy from the distributor and resell it to you. You can't purchase electricity directly from the distributor, you have to purchase it from an energy retailer. You can be confident that there won't be any interruption to your electricity supply when you switch retailers, because you'll continue to use the same connection to the same distributor.
The 'paperwork' is all processed quite quickly, often within 24 hours. However, the switchover can't go ahead until after your present provider has issued you their final bill, and they can't do that until they've taken a final meter reading. Therefore, it depends on when your next meter reading be. It could take as long as three months.
Compare and Connect will sign you up with your new energy provider, and we also inform the current provider that you are switching away from them. The actual move over to your new provider will not happen immediately, because the current provider has to read your meter one final time. and then send you their final bill. The new provider only begins charging you from the date of the meter reading. the energy distributor that supplies the energy to your house continues to be the same one as before the switch.
No. Our comparison and switching service is free to you. We will receive a commission from your new electricity provider.While our service is provided to you without charge, you may be subject to charges in relation to your current service, including exit fees. You should check this with your current supplier(s).

Tips to reduce your electricity usage and lower your bills

Here is a list of easily implemented tips for reducing your expenditure on your energy bills

  • Wear clothing that's appropriate for cold weather, instead of turning on the heater (booties, jumper, warm socks, beanie).
  • Turn appliances off at the power point when they're not in use.
  • A cheap alternative to an electric blanket is a hot water bottle.
  • Minimise draughts. Stop hot or cold air entering or escaping through the gaps under doors and around windows through the use of gap seal tape and door snakes.
  • Use the clothes dryer less. Instead, hang the clothes to dry outside or alternatively, use an indoor clothing rack.
  • Prevent the hot sun over-heating your house by closing curtains and blinds in rooms that the hot sun shines directly into.
  • Minimise the use of air conditioning by opening windows at night to let the cooler air in, and then shutting them in the morning thus keeping the hot air out.
  • Minimise lighting by making use of the available natural light and replace older lights with energy efficient LED lighting.
  • Close the doors to rooms that aren't in use, so that you only heat or cool a smaller area.
