I have moved into a property supplied by Bulb

When you move into a new property, you’ll usually get a letter ‘addressed to the occupier’ of the place. This will be from the incumbent supplier which in your case is Bulb energy. You first need to decide if you’d like to inherit this supplier or if you’d like to choose your own energy company.

Either way, you will need to update Bulb. You should take meter readings as soon as you move in. Call Bulb on 0300 303 0635 and let them know that you are the new occupier. You will then either setup a supply (if you like) or pay for the energy you have used.

And that’s the Bulb moving home process in a nutshell.. You can complete a Bulb change of address online, either through your account or using SlothMove’s change of address service.
