How long does it take to switch?

The switch takes 21 days from start to finish

This includes a 2-week cooling off period. It only takes 2 minutes to set up, and we’ll do the leg work from there. Your energy supply will be uninterrupted throughout.

Here's a quick rundown of what happens during the switch.

Day 1 - You sign up with Bulb. We'll send you a welcome pack with everything you need to know.
Day 9 - We'll check in to let you know how the switch is going and give you a heads up that we'll ask for a meter reading in a weeks time.
Day 16 - We'll ask you for your first meter reading to make sure our billing is as accurate as possible. We'll remind you over the next few days if we don't get a reading.
Day 19 - We'll give you a heads up that your first payment is coming out in a couple of days.
Day 22 - Hurray! Your switch has completed. Wasn't that easy?

We'll send you your first statement a month later, and from there it's plain sailing.

You can now keep track of your switch from the Bulb account. If you've started switching to Bulb, log into your Bulb account and check at what stage of the switch you're currently at.
