EV and SMETS1 Meter


I’m getting an EV and a charger fitted this week, I think I’m on SMETS 1 so I take it that this means I can’t switch to an EV tariff until it’s changed?



Hi @robertsca,

Welcome to community :wave: Thanks for your post!

You can check the eligibility criteria for out EV tariff here.

Up until 2018, most smart meters installed in homes were first generation, or SMETS1. During 2021, all SMETS1 meters will be automatically upgraded to work like SMETS2 meters. This will make them compatible with the EV Tariff. If you have a SMETS1 meter, we’ll let you know when it’s smart again.

We wouldn’t be able to switch you to the EV tariff until this has happened unfortunately.

Please let me know if you have any other q’s.
