If you have a 2 rate meter (including Economy 7), you'll usually pay different rates for your electricity depending on when you use it. This usually means a day rate and a cheaper, off-peak night rate.
Which tariff you're on depends on how many off-peak hours your meter has. If your meter has:
- less than 8.5 off-peak hours, you’ll be on our 2 rate tariff
- 8.5 off-peak hours or more, you’ll be on our single rate tariff
Switching your meter
To a standard meter
If you want to switch to a standard, single rate meter, it'll cost £120. To request a standard meter, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To a 2 rate meter
We don't currently offer new 2 rate meters, so you can't switch from a standard meter to a 2 rate meter at the moment.
We hope to be able to offer 2 rate tariffs on our smart meters in the future. Find out more about our smart meter roll-out.
