Check who's taken over your energy supply

This advice applies to England

You might get a new energy supplier if your current supplier:

  • goes out of business

  • is bought by another energy company

  • changes their name

You’ll still have gas and electricity if this happens.

You’ll normally be told when your account is being moved to a new supplier.

If your current supplier goes bust, you might have to wait a few weeks to find out who your new supplier is. They will contact you to tell you they've taken over your energy supply. You can read our advice about what to do if your energy supplier goes bust.

If your supplier is being sold or changing their name, they’ll contact you to tell you:

  • the name of your new supplier

  • when your account will be moved to the new supplier

These are the suppliers that have been taken over since January 2019, and the month they announced the change.
