I recently moved in to a property with a Honeywell AS300P (SMETS1) smart meter on a standard single rate tariff.
I would like to switch to a dual-rate Economy 7 tariff but I’m finding it very difficult to find information about exactly how to do that.
- Some suppliers simply don’t offer it.
- Some suppliers say they offer it but only for homes with storage heaters.
- Some suppliers say a new meter will need to be installed by an engineer.
So I would like to ask: if I switch to OVO, is it possible for my meter to be changed/re-programmeed into an Economy 7 mode remotely, without an engineer?
Secondly, while I’m on the topic, does OVO offer upgrades from SMETS1 meters to the newer SMETS2 versions?
