I had your smart meter fitted in December and it was great to see how much the gas and electricity was going to cost me on my January bill but after the January Bill the daily cost for the electricity and gas just carried on increasing so now 3 months down the line I'm no wiser on how much my next bill is going to be??? I would have thought that after a bill has been calculated,the meter readings of the daily cost for the usage would have been reset to zero!! Or am I missing something here???
It's been a while but I'm not sure you've been given any definitive advice on this yet.
That smart meter and In Home Display won't give you a total for each month. They'll provide a running total of your usage costs since they were installed. It's a nice idea, but they don't link up with your billing system. The smart meter and IHD communicate with each other, giving you live usage info and historic comparisons. The smart meter also sends us a load of readings, which your My OVO page gobbles up, turning them into great usage info. If your smart meter sends us your readings every 30 minutes, the My Usage section is great. Check it out here. You also have the option to select an 'illustrative statement', which generates a pretend bill on the day selected.
Hope this helps,
