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 2-rate meter
To a smart meter
If you want to switch to a smart meter, we can do that free of charge. The smart meter can be 1-rate or 2-rate. Check if we're installing in your area and book a smart meter installation.
To a standard meter
If you want to switch to a non-smart, standard, single rate meter, it'll cost £120. Get in touch and we can arrange this for you.
To a new 2-rate meter
You can switch to a smart 2-rate meter free of charge.
We don't currently offer new non-smart 2 rate meters, so you can't switch from a standard meter to a 2-rate meter at the moment.
