Economy 7

Hi, I am a new customer. I’m looking at getting enonomy 7 so I can charge my car at night. Could you let me know the times of economy 7 and tariff for my area and the cost of installing please. Also is the new meter anything to do with economy 7 or a separate thing entirely. I only ask as I mentioned this to someone and they said to wait for the meter before getting economy 7. Thanks.

@Tashyface A cost for installing an economy 7 meter would be £120.

The times are typically 0030-0730 but can by any 7 hours between around 10 and 8.

Thanks for the info. What about the last part of the question regarding the smart meter, thank you.

If you wait for a smart meter, they’ll be able to change it to Economy 7 remotely (or at time of install), so it should be free.

We’re on track to start rolling out second generation smart meters by the end of 2018.

The timeline has been pushed back from the original plan of January 2018 because of industry-wide software delays that impact all suppliers.

This software, which is commissioned by the Government, is still not functioning as it should. Unfortunately, all energy suppliers are waiting for this software to be fully functional before installing second generation (SMETS2) smart meters in larger volumes.

We will be in touch with you as soon as we can to install a smart meter for you.
