    Which suppliers provide gas when it is located in an independent LDZ (local distribution zone)? 16th May 18 at 3:04 PM
    My gas supply is located in an independent LDZ (local distribution zone). I understand this is slightly different to IGT's (Independent Gas transporters) which are part of the National Grid. Npower provide my electricity and E.On provide gas. I want to find a provider that’ll offer better tariffs dual fuel. Bulb looked attractive and so I contacted them for clarification before starting the switch. I did this because I tried a switch to npower dual fuel in 2010 and the process stalled! I had to abandon the switch because npower could not provide the gas thanks to the independent pipeline the property has. The house was built in 1999 and is not rural so I am unsure why an IGT National Grid system was not used. I presume the builder of these 68 houses chose this route. The LDZ independent pipeline arrangement locks me in to E.On unless I can identify which companies will supply gas via a MPRN (Meter Point Reference Number) starting with ‘74’ and the. Do all of the Big 6 including npower now provide gas no matter how it arrives at the property? If not, which suppliers can I consider? Thank you in advance.

    Thanks Jade,
    I have emailed nPower the details so you can look into the issue and see whether things have progressed since I was last informed you could not supply the gas.
