Can I get an Economy 7 meter fitted?

Yes, we can do this for you. We only recommend changing to an Economy 7 meter if you use at least 30% of your electricity at night. Give us a ring on 0300 30 30 635 if this is something you’re interested in.

What does it cost?

It will cost £120, which will be added as a debit on your Bulb account once your meter has been exchanged.

When can I get an Economy 7 meter fitted?

We can only replace your meter if we're already your supplier. If you haven't switched to Bulb yet, you can ask your current supplier to install an Economy 7 meter, or you can wait until your switch to Bulb is complete and then book it in with us.

We can arrange to change your electricity meter as soon as there's an engineer available in your area. This depends on where you live. Call us on 0300 30 30 635 from Monday to Friday (9AM to 6PM) so we can find a time slot that works for you.

Some things to note

Economy 7 meters switch between a peak rate and an off-peak rate throughout the day. This won’t be affected by BST.


Economy 7 meters have different rates. You can read about them on our tariffs page. Simply scroll to the bottom and select ‘I have an Economy 7 meter for my electricity’.
