I am doing some work on my house and planning to knock through a wall in kitchen. Unfortunately the electricity metre is on the wall that needs to be chocked down. It needs to be moved to the opposite wall about a meter. With the gas meter once the knock through happens it will be in the middle of the room, so need to move it about 1.5m. Has any one done moving of utility metres before..? Can OVO do this for me..?

Whilst suppliers such as OVO can help in the relocation of your gas/electricity meter, we’re not the only ones who need to be involved. You can find out who is responsible for each part of your meter setup on our handy guide.
If you are looking to move either meter from the existing meter backboard you would need to contact your local DNO to move your electricity mains cables or your gas transporter to move your gas pipework. This work should be arranged to take place on the same day as our engineers visit to move the meter to make sure there is no disruption to your supply.
As a non-essential maintenance job, there is a charge for us to move your meter. Moving your electricity meter costs £125 for a single phase, and £325 for a 3-phase supply, moving your gas meter costs £145. We’ve made a topic guide on engineer jobs and how much they cost, see this here.
If you’d like to get a meter relocation arranged reach out to our Support Team.
