What does your property need?

We can install your gas and electricity infrastructure and free energy meters.

When you ask for a quote you'll need to have to hand:

  1. Your address and postcode.
  2. Your gas Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN), if you have one.
  3. The date your gas pipe is getting installed (if you want a gas meter).
  4. Your electricity Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) from your local network (if you want an electricity meter).

Once you’ve got those ready, you can download either:

We can refresh your gas and electricity equipment with:

A new gas supply

We’ll fit new gas pipes to your property.

A new gas meter  

We can install a new meter if yours has been removed or if you have new pipes.

A gas meter upgrade

We can swap your meter for a larger one (just make sure you have your peak hourly gas load to hand when you call for a quote – your Gas Safe engineer can tell you that).

A new electricity meter

We can fit a new electricity meter for you, as long as we’re your supplier.

Smart meters

We can upgrade you to smart meters. They show you how much energy you’re using and what it costs in pounds and pence.

If you manage single or multiple dwellings, our social housing team will help you with your installation, whether it’s gas, electricity or metering that you need.

Existing properties

Once we’ve got your application, one of our account managers will get in touch – and they’ll see the project through with you until it’s finished.
