Find out who is your energy supplier
Normally, your new home will already have an energy supplier, however, in Italy, you can switch it at any moment.
The first step is finding out who currently supplies gas and electricity to your home. This information is useful to get the best tariff on the market.
You should also check who will be your local energy distributor, who is in charge of technical emergencies. You cannot change your distributor but it’s still important to know who to contact in case of a service issue. Normally numbers of distributors are also available on your bills.
Getting your home connected
