Two rate meters (including Economy 7)

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.
