I have moved into a property supplied by Ovo energy

When you get the keys to your shiny new flat or house you will likely see a letter ‘address to the occupier’ from the incumbent energy supplier. You may have been told by the previous owner. tenant or estate agent wheo the supplier is.

The first thing you need to do is decide if you’d like to stick with the incumbent supplier or explore. if you’re not sure on what average energy bills are based on your house size (2 bed, 3 bed, 4 bed, flat etc..), we’ve pulled together a full guide for you.

Once you move in, take your  meter readings as soon as you can so you know what the starting meter readings are. Then, choose your preferred energy supplier and they will inform Ovo energy that you’ve switched supplier. 

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