What are MPAN and MPRN numbers and how do I find them?

MPAN and MPRN numbers are unique reference numbers for your electricity and gas supplies.

  • MPAN stands for metering point administration number and relates to electricity. It’s also sometimes called a ‘supply number’ or ‘S number’.
  • MPRN stands for meter point reference number and relates to your gas supply. It’s sometimes called an ‘M number’.

You can find your MPAN on your electricity bill. If you don’t have a bill, your energy supplier or the electricity distributor in your area will be able to tell you what it is. You’ll also find your MPRN on your gas bill, or you can get it by calling the National Grid on 0870 608 1524.
