Bristol Energy is currently installing smart meters for a limited number of domestic customers this year, with the aim to start a full rollout from Spring 2018. You can register your interest here.
Smart meters are a device in your home that use mobile phone networks to send automatic readings to your supplier. All homes will eventually have them.
If you have an outstanding bill you are still able to switch to us. You will be sent a final bill from your current supplier. If you are on a prepayment meter with an outstanding bill of up to £500 then we'll consider how you will be able to pay this bill to us, as part of your outstanding payments.
It will normally take up to three weeks to switch from the date you sign up to Bristol Energy. This includes your 14 day ‘cooling-off’ period.
Yes, we are currently offering a tariff for prepayment customers. You can sign up as an electricity customer from anywhere in the UK, and as a gas customer in Bristol and the surrounding area. We are currently not taking on any gas only customers at this time.
You can choose to be dual fuel (electricity and gas) or just electricity or gas, depending on what suits you.
