Hi,

I have been having issues with my smart meter OVO have recommended doing a load test. And I have no idea how to do that. The form I have to fill in makes it look like a meter reading but I want to be sure.

thanks!

Great question @Harvey1812

A load test is for Economy 7 meters, and involves recording both register readings at different points in the day.

Both readings either need to be taken in their peak times or off peak times, with the idea being that you confirm which register is peak and which is off peak.

If you have a smart meter, it should be easy to know which is day and night - press 6 on the keypad to confirm your economy 7 readings!
