Hi I have northern gas networks coming to fix the gas supply to my property which is currently electric only. How do I get over energy/boost to supply me with a meter so that I can then use my new supply. Please can you help me as I’m struggling to get someone to understand what I need to do thank you

Hi @CliveLandlord - great question this. 

 

Boost Power are actually not able to create a new supply currently. This is what is needed, a supply (together with a supply number, otherwise known as a meter point reference number), needs creating by a supplier able to do this, who would also arrange with you to visit and fit the meter. After this point, you could switch to Boost at any point here

 

My advice is to reach out to a big supplier, like SSE to request a quote for this process.

I currently only have an electricity supply.  I have arranged for my gas to be re-conneceted.  I am wondering if Ovo/Boost arrange for/ fit new gas meters, or need I go to British Gas etc. to arrange this?

Hi @jonjoco and thanks for posting this!

 

Boost Power can’t create new supplies, but our sister company SSE can. Reach out to them to get an appointment booked in here

 

SSE will create a new supply number, and advise you on how you can book the National Grid to get the pipes set up (if that’s needed) and SSE would visit on the same day to fit the actual meter. 

 

From then, you can choose any supplier you want!
