How to identify your electricity distributor

Your MPAN is the unique identifying number for the electricity meter at your property, often referred to as a 'Supply Number' or 'S' number. This number is made up of 13 digits highlighted in the bottom row of the illustration. For example, the ‘10’ in the bottom row corresponds with the Distribution ID for UK Power Networks in the look-up table below.

The MPAN will be shown on any bills you have, and may also appear on a recent letter or email we’ve sent you.
