Where do I find my Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) on my OVO online account? - I need to know it for my EV charger installation!

Hi Folks

Looking to get a podpoint installed and they need my MPAN.  In my Ovo profile I see no mention of MPAN at all.  How can I find out what it is?  I have a barcode on the front of my electricity meter but I’m not sure if that’s it.

Great question to ask about the easiest way to find out your electricity supply details, known as your Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN), now you’re getting an EV charger installed.

The best place to head is the ‘Plan’ page of your online account or OVO app (download for Android or iOS).


Exact appearance may vary

Your MPAN will be shown towards the bottom of the box containing the details of your Electricity plan.

Hope the EV charger installation goes smoothly - We’d love to hear about it once it’s completed!

Stumbled across this thread and still need help understanding what this ‘MPAN’ business is all about? - Our content team have got you covered with this comprehensive guide. Here’s just a handy snippet (even I learnt something from this!):


What is an MPAN?


An MPAN is the number that identifies the specific electricity supply point for your home. To the expert eye, it contains some important information about your supply.

Your MPAN is separate to the account number or customer number that your energy supplier might give you. It’s not connected to your energy account, but to the actual energy supply at your property. This means it should always stay the same, even if you switch suppliers

It’s sometimes also known as your “supply number”, or even as an “S number”. It usually starts with the letter S.

It’s a 21-digit number, which you should be able to see on your electricity bills. Within those 21 numbers are several smaller numbers that contain different pieces of information.

For example, your MPAN contains a 2-digit Distributor ID. These 2 numbers show which distribution system operator (a company that distributes energy to homes) your energy supply is connected to.
