How can I get my meter moved?

The process of moving your gas or electricity meter depends on how far you want to move it:
less than one metre on the same wall, or more than one metre or to a different wall.

Less than one metre on the same wall

We can organise this for you. It will cost £185.21 for a gas meter and £120 for an electricity meter. To book the move, call us on 0300 30 30 635, from Monday to Friday (9:00am to 6:00pm).

More than one metre or to a different wall

First, contact your network operator, as they may need to move pipes or wiring before we can re-situate the meter. The Energy Networks Association provide information on how to find your network operator.

To get the meter moved in one day, book a morning slot with the network operator, and contact us to book an engineer for the same afternoon. Please allow 10-working days notice for us to schedule the booking.

The cost of this move is £185.21 for gas and £120 for electricity. There may be an additional cost from the distributor.

Meters that are on/in the ground

Regardless of how far they're being moved, these meters need a little extra care. Your network operator will need to alter the piping before we can move your meter. In some cases, the network operator may be able to move it themselves, but it's best to check with them first.
