Most domestic electricity and gas supplier contracts are 12 months in duration.
The standard exit fee is usually €50 for a single fuel and €100 for a duel fuel.
In some cases a supplier will not charge any exit fee.
No, you do not need to do anything, we will handle the entire switch for you and contact your existing gas or electricity supplier and complete the switch for you. Once we have your current meter readings that triggers a final bill from your current supplier and then you will move onto a discount with your new supplier via Dolphin Utilities.
In most cases we can offer discount off the standard unit rate and/or a cash credit with your new supplier.
This is a personal choice, a cash credit will often mean a bill break as the credit will sometimes cover a month or two months bill. This may also suit someone who has low usage. A higher discounted only unit rate would suit a high usage consumer as they will continue to save over the 12-month period of the contract.
To switch your Electricity - you will need your MPRN (Meter Point Reference Number)
To switch your Gas - you will need your GPRN (Gas Point Reference Number)
(Your MPRN and GPRN numbers can be found on any previous bill)
