Hello
We have just moved house and took the opportunity to change to OVO (we were with EDF but the new home was with EON)
We have now discovered we have two meters with different usage from the final EoN bill, although from what I can see only one MPAN.
Can ovo pick this up as is - is this a different requirement to the one we have signed up for?

thanks

Not a problem @TamHam

We can take on customers with an Economy 7 set up, and it's up to you whether you have the Day and Night prices. Visit our Quote page (here: http://ovoener.gy/Quote) to view our tariffs.

Whether a Day and Night 'Economy 7' tariff is worth it depends on how much energy you use at night (usually >28% usage at night is worth an Economy 7 set up).

I’m not sure what this could be @TamHam or what your meter set up is like. Can you send me a picture of your meter on this topic?

Do the final readings on the bill from Eon match the readings that have been used to open your OVO Energy account? Can you please also advise what plan you signed up for?

Hello

It’s a multirate meter via eon, and the bill shows two rates low and normal , however they are both charged at the same rate 15.41p unit. I imagine this was some sort of economy 7 meter originally although that has now lapsed with Eon.
So two questions , do OVO accommodate a multirate meter?
Or
Can I add the two numbers together from the start and then provide those numbers going forward? I have included a photo of the meter, it toggles between the two.

I have a bill from
Eon for our first month here so want to give them closing readings and give you the same opening readings....
Make sense?
Let me know

Thanks

I am thinking of switching to OVO. I have a an electronic meter that records night and day and total readings. I cycle around the readings on a button. For my current supplier I simply supply two readings (online) both charged at the same tariff. I'm not keen on smart meters (I'll await 2nd gen) and we don't really want to run things overnight - our usage doesn't justify economy7 - can I switch to Ovo and continue to submit two readings at a single tariff?
