Notice to terminate contracts

All business electricity and gas users should terminate their current contracts before switching to a new one. If you don't, you'll be "rolled over" on increased rates for another term.

Your current deal will stipulate when you must give notice of your intent to terminate - generally up to 90 days before your contract end date.

Once you've completed the termination process with your current energy supplier, you're then free to get quotes and change to a new pricing structure.
