The meter has a 5th terminal for storage heaters ,but is this a 24/7 power supply running alongside economy 7 ?
Any help would be appreciated

Updated on 23/12/20: Due to the low number of OVO members using storage heaters, we decided to focus on other tech solutions that can help them lower their carbon emissions faster, and on a bigger scale.
As a result we no longer offer Dimplex storage heaters with our vchage technology. If you’ve already signed up for it, this won’t affect you in any way. Everything will carry on working just as it should.
If you’re thinking of buying new storage heaters, this handy guide tells you everything you need to know.
The 5th terminal is intended for switched loads such as immersion/storage-heaters. However, it's up to the Supplier (OVO) to have the meter configured how/when this terminal is made "live".
You can download the Liberty-100/110 brochure for yourself. The one thing which is clear from the brochure is that the 5th terminal is switched. So it isn't available 24/7 unless that's how it's been configured.
