Energy switching process

It’s easy to switch business energy suppliers

With energy being a key expense for a number of UK businesses, we will ensure our energy supply transfer process is simplistic and suited to each of our customer’s requirements. We know how complex it is to find a competitive quote, which is why we will offer you our best energy prices, allowing you to make a more informed decision when deciding to switch to Crown Gas & Power.

Before you consider switching energy suppliers, it’s important to determine how much energy your business uses throughout the year. You can do this simply by comparing your previous energy bills or monitoring your consumption data through your online account.

Contact us with your energy requirements

As your current energy supply contract comes to an end, contact our team at Crown Gas & Power on 0161 762 1883, or simply complete our quote form for a competitive energy price today. The main information we need from you is the postcode, company name and site contact details.

Finalise your supply contract details

Once we have received your request we will first run a credit check. Following this, we will be in touch to finalise the new contract with you. For more information about our quotations, credit and payments take a look at our Billing & Payment FAQs and Quotation & Contract FAQs.

Once you have agreed to switch

Our team will begin working on your business energy supply transfer. We want to ensure you are able to switch suppliers conveniently, causing as little disruption to your businesses operations as possible.

Why might your existing supplier object to the switch?
  • You may still be in a valid contract with your current supplier
  • You may still have an outstanding balance with your current supplier

If your existing supplier objects to your switch once you have accepted our contract, our team will work to create a timely resolution, ensuring your switch continues to run smoothly.

How long will my supply transfer take?

Our supply transfer process takes 5 days. However, this is dependent on the current supplier not objecting to the transfer.

When should I submit meter readings?

After the 15 day transfer process has been completed we recommend that you submit your first meter reading within the first 3 days after your contract start date. This can be done online here. Alternatively, you can submit meter readings via telephone on 0161 762 7744 or via email

How do I register for my customer portal?

Once your site is live, our team will register your account. You will then need to log in securely and change your password. Now that you have switched, you will benefit from the features of our customer portal where you will be able to monitor consumption and keep track of your payments with us.
