Hi, I have the app and I’m trying to top up but paying by card and bank transfer are declined. It worked a few weeks ago and I have adequate funds in my bank account. Any suggestions? I was on hold for 45 minutes last time I had to call for help. TIA
So far I've been quite pleased with the service from OVO.Today I'm a bit perplexed! I was issued an IHD3 a couple of months ago. The total gas and electricity daily costs which I recorded always matched when totalled with the monthly costs.But having recorded the figures for the last week with the IHD3 when I checked the last week's figures again today (26/9/23) on the IHD3 they have changed!As a sample: Sep 21 £2.46 is now showing 2.81, Sep22 £3.05 is now £2.87, Sep 23 £2.84 is now 2.77 Sep 24 £2.63 is now 2.70.Grateful for any explanation. Thanks,Paul F.
We have recently moved over from SSE to OvO and have electricity on a credit tariff and our gas on PAYG. Usually the meter will show the standard three usage lights Green/ Amber and Red to show our energy usage, but all of a sudden it has lately being switching to a solid blue light (see image below) and the only way to return it to the standard usage lights, is to reboot the IHD, but his only works for a day or two before the blue light comes back. Is this a fault with the IHD? As you can see, it is still the same IHD that came with the original SSE smart meter that we had installed (and still have) when we switched to a smart meter with SSE!
Hello I was moved electricity suppliers from SSE to ovo on 8 Aug this year and I’m on a 3 meter reading. SSE sent a final estimated bill on 12 Aug which was inaccurate for 2 of the 3 readings. I entered readings online on 12 Aug but SSE have not altered their final bill and ovo are using my actual meter readings for their opening readings.The end result is I’ve paid for 129 units of electricity twice which is over £30. I’ve live chatted and spoken on the phone to ovo customer service and support team, sent in photos of my meter readings. Also chatted to SSE but they keep passing me back to ovo.How do I proceed from here?
My account is showing that I've used more gas in two weeks I've been away than when I'm at home. The flat is empty so nobody using the hob and I turned off the boiler completely so no usage there. Nothing else uses gas! Any ideas?
Hello, I was transferred from SSE payg for my electricity, and Pay monthly Gas. My gas account transferred fine back in May but I’ve been told my Payg is still not complete? On SSE there was no way to create a account for Payg, is it the same on OVO? Should I be able to view my Payg along with my Pay monthly account in one place and would the account numbers be the same ?I just want to change my economy 7 Payg to a single rate plan as I’m not making use of the dual plan prices.
I have just got an email from OVO offering a home visit to my home for #25.00Did anyone else get this?The link to book the offer doesn’t workThey won’t answer the phone.Has anyone got any idea how you book this offer?
Anyone know when we're able to download the bills again? It's been a while since there has been a problem with downloading it. Last I heard was that there's no timetable for the fix.
Despite applying for the Alternative Fuel Payment in February 2023, the payment has still not materialised. I did contact the gov.uk helpline in April and was told that my application had been received and that there was a backlog which could take a few months to resolve. Trying to get back in touch but the numbers which I was using have now been discontinued. I have contacted my council (Powys) and am waiting for somebody to call me back tomorrow. Are there still folk waiting or have we just been forgotten?
I’m the landlord of a property and my tenant has just moved out. I’ve now discovered that without my prior knowledge or permission, the tenant had the meters changed at the property to Pay As You Go meters. I would never have agreed to this.How do I get them changed back? ( they did it for both the gas and electricity supply). The account was previously SSE and I believe is now OVO.Thanks in advance.
Please can someone explain why despite the best endeavours of a senior complaints resolution handler, OVO is unable to get my smart meter working correctly. Having been promised a smart meter with E7 functionality to replace my previous dual meter (with E10 rates) and having received a new agreement showing dual rates the smart meter fitted 27 days ago on Aug 31st is still only showing a single rate and the the 5th port is not switching on during the off peak hours. This means I cannot use my storage heaters and have to rely on using conventional heaters at the more expensive standard rate.In essence OVO have taken away one of my services and failed to replace it. (Not to mention the fact that my circumstances should class me as vulnerable).
Multi-rate meters are also sometimes known as ‘complex’ or ‘exotic’ meters These older types of meter are being phased out and support for them will be ending soon. If you have one of these meters, and think you’ll be affected, don’t worry- we’ll be in touch to arrange an upgrade to make sure your heating and hot water keeps working properly. So, what is an ‘exotic meter type’ and why is support for some of these meters ending? Let’s find out more... We’re saying goodbye to Radio Teleswitch Meters (RTS Meter) and Dynamically Teleswitched Meters (DTS Meter). Support is ending for old electric meters that use Radio Teleswitches. The Radio Teleswitch System (or RTS) was created to help with electricity meters that had special tariffs (such as Economy 7) before smart meters came along. Even though it has a few features that are seen in today’s smart meters, such as automatically turning heating or hot water on or off, it isn’t quite as smart. It can’t send us your meter readings remotely
