However I am told we are a bit unusual, we have two meters, one to do the cheap nighttime electricity, and one to do the day rate, so that means two MPAN numbers etc.
Is this something Ovo can accommodate? I had another supplier tell me they could but it would mean two standing charges, which is definitely something we don't currently pay to one of the big suppliers.

Updated on 24/02/12: If you have two MPANS for your electricity, they might be ‘related’ on the national database. Currently we can’t take on related MPANS.
If you’re not already supplied by us, and you don't have related MPANS, check out the available OVO plans and get your switch sorted today here.
We certainly do take on a set up that has 2 supplies (each with an MPAN) for one meter. a MPAN stands for ‘meter point administration number’, and refers to your property’s supply.
Initially when you start the switch online, we would just pick up the one MPAN, so call us once you've had your welcome letter and we'll make sure to apply for both: 0330 303 5063. It’s best to call as we will need verbal confirmation that you’re happy to switch this other supply to us.
We would apply a standing charge for each MPAN, so we'd highly recommend you get a smart meter fitted. When we fit the meter, we'd get rid of the surplus MPAN, meaning you'd only pay a single standing charge after the installation.
