If you've already switched to us

If you've already chosen to switch your energy supply to us, thank you!

It usually takes around three weeks to change your gas and electricity supplier to SSE and we'll keep you informed every step of the way. We'll also send you a pack in the post which includes a copy of your contract along with our terms and conditions.

Here’s what happens when you switch your energy supply to SSE

Week one

Once you've applied to switch to us, you have a 14-calendar-day cancellation period that starts on the date you receive your Welcome Pack. The cancellation period allows you to make a change or cancel your application to join us if you'd like to.

Week two onwards

We'll let your current supplier know that you've chosen to switch energy provider. So you won't have to worry about letting them know.

We'll let you know how your energy switch is going and we'll also let you know the date your supply starts with us. If you've chosen to pay by Direct Debit, we'll 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.

A few days before your supply starts with us, we'll send you a confirmation letter which gives you lots of useful information about your service. We'll also include some useful contact numbers if you need to speak to us.

After your supply starts

Once your supply starts, we'll send you a letter confirming that we're now your energy supplier.

If you chose a regular payment plan, we'll start receiving payments on the date we've agreed with you. You'll find details in your confirmation letter. We'll send your first bill within three months of you joining us.

If you have any questions about switching energy provider or how to cancel during your cancellation period, please contact us.

Renewing your energy tariff

If your current SSE tariff is about to end, we'll help you easily compare and switch energy products.

It's easy to choose and change, and it only takes a few minutes to select a new tariff. If you're with us on our Standard deal, you can fix your prices by signing up to one of our other tariffs.
