3-Phase, Economy 7, Smart Meter? Should I move to OVO

We are building a new house with 8 kWp PV on the roof, all electric heating (ASHP), hot water (micro ASHP) and ventilation and we have a Zoe EV that mostly gets charged at home. In due course we would anticipate having a second and/or higher capacity EV to charge.

I am looking at energy supplier options.

Am I right to think that 3-phase (for the PV) means there is no Smart Meter option?
I can’t see an Economy 7 option on the OVO tariffs? I would like to use this for EV charging and winter battery charging for Time-shifting.
I am assuming that there is a 3-phase E7 meter option?

Much appreciate any expert answers.

Hi @JWD,

Excellent topic for your first posting here on the Forum! :)

Have a look here where I answered a similar question a month ago.

Then have a look at my post on 04mar18 to this thread where I comment on Economy-7 and why that concept is on its way out.

I'm a self-builder too, so if you want to discuss further related stuff, please do so!
