Who is my supplier?

Gas

For gas you can visit Find My Supplier or call the Meter Number Helpline: 0870 608 1524 to find out who supplies your gas.

If you provide your postcode and the first line of your address then they will be able to tell you what your MPRN (Meter Point Reference Number) is and who your current provider is.

The helpline costs 7p per minute, and is a nationwide service.

Electricity

Finding out which company supplies your electricity is slightly trickier, but not much. The UK electricity network is split into regions, and each region has a local distribution company that keeps a record of who supplies electricity to every home in their area.

You can call up the local distribution company in your area and they’ll tell you who is currently supplying power to your property.
