E7 Meter

Hi - I had an E7 meter fitted yesterday and I believe I will be on the two tariff - my post code is RG24 - is the attached Southern Area correct (Bulb)

My meter times are incorrect in that it was reading 0651 when it was actually 0731 hours ?

Also is reading 1 off peak and 2 peak or visa versa

Thank you for your help

Meter times don’t change with the clocks, and mines out by quite a bit like yours. It’s something you have to be aware of with economy 7.

Quoting another post that tells you how to figure it out:

Another way..

On your electricity bill you’ll see something like this

Make a note of the 3 digit “Meter Time Switch Code” and search for it on here

EDIT
The link is now dead, common codes here:
Code Time
500 Single rate
501 Single rate
801 Single rate
802 Single rate
803 Cheap: 23:30 – 06:30 clock time
804 Cheap: 23:30 – 06:30 clock time
805 Cheap: 23:30 – 06:30 GMT
806 Cheap: 23:30 – 06:300 GMT
807 Cheap: Midnight – 0700 GMT
808 Cheap: Midnight – 0700 GMT
809 Cheap: Midnight – 0700 GMT
810 Cheap: Midnight – 0700 GMT
811 Cheap: 00:30 – 07:30 GMT
812 Cheap: 00:30 – 07:30 GMT
813 Cheap: 00:30 – 07:30 clock time
814 Cheap: 00:30 – 07:30 GMT
815 Cheap: 00:30 – 07:30 GMT
816 Cheap: 00:30 – 07:30 clock time
817 Cheap: 00:30 – 07:30 clock time
830 Cheap: 01:00 – 08:00 clock time
831 Cheap: 01:00 – 08:00 clock time

As an example, mine changed from 801 (single rate/non E7)

to 811 (E7 00:30-07:30) after having my E7 meter fitted…

Go by the time your meter tells you rather than the actual time as well.

Thanks @katherine244 that’s super helpful, might bookmark this post for my own reference! Much more user friendly than my own reference sheet. @TonyWoots it’s dependent on your specific meter, and the time on that meter, rather than your location, as there are different varieties of economy 7 meters-there are even a few with an hour or two in the middle of the night that aren’t off peak, with the offpeak times around them going from a little earlier in the evening to later in the morning-very unusual though. That list above should have all the common ones, and if you can’t find yours let me know and I can look it up for you meter

Since Bulb is obviously aware of everyones meter time switch code, wouldn’t it be relatively simple to just put the times in the online account page somewhere? Though I suppose the effort is a bit redundant now with smart meters coming in the next few months.

From discussions on this board, I believe they don’t get the ‘technical data’ about the meter (such as the ‘supply code’) until several weeks after the switch is complete: and that’s what’s stopping them adding the details (which, as you’ve pointed out, will be redundant anyway once smart meters come out). With the meter times remaining the same between suppliers, I get the impression they don’t get enough requests to be worth the programming time adding the page.
