When will the suspension be applied and will I be notified?

The suspension will be automatically applied by your network operator as soon as your application has been processed and validated. We won’t be in touch with updates but please don’t worry. Rest assured that your suspension will be applied as soon as ESB Networks or Gas Networks can process your application.  Network operators may experience a high volume of applications and will not be updating suppliers on progress so we would kindly ask you not to direct queries on this to our agents.
