Can anyone explain what’s going on here?Opening balance was £335, we used around £90 worth of electric/gas combined (£66 government payment was taken off this, hence the £22 charge), I paid £150 so by my reckoning the balance should have gone up by around £125.It hasn’t though - they seem to have then deducted the £66 again.Does anyone know why? Do I need to contact them or will it right itself?
Hi there,I am fairly new to having a Smart meter as i had it installed in Sep last year. When i check online (not via the App) i always see a lot of discrepancies with my gas information. The electric always seems spot on. Some of the issues i have seen recently are as follows:The usage figures for gas always differ depending on whether i view these as daily or monthly. For example, for the 2/1 the daily usage shows 32.55 kWh whereas the monthly usage shows 72.93 kWh for the 2/1. Most days it is only out by a small amount but it is never the same. I seem to be getting billed based on the monthly usage figures rather than the daily ones.Periodically there is a missing gas meter reading. Last one was the 3/1. Usage for that day is still showing though as 73.58 kWh based on the monthly usage figures.Periodically there is no gas usage showing on either the daily or monthly tabs. For example, daily usage is missing for the 31/12 but there is a monthly usage figure for that day. For the 8/1
HelloCan anyone clarify if 2nd home owners will receive this payment for each property / account. I've had a payment for the 2nd property but not for my own home.I do not want to put my situation on a webchat but please be assured that the property is required for a family member & is a non profiting financial drain.Thanks for any information Sincerely Vamatex
Would it be possible to present the EBSS in a more direct and easy decipherable format for all to view on their online account?The way that the EBSS is displayed on online accounts from payment into OVO customer accounts and transference to bank accounts is not straightforward for many to understand.
I have been on a 2 year fixed rate contract which is about to finish. I struggle with doing things online but according to what I have found my direct debit will more than double. I am in credit and watch carefully how I use my gas and electric. Surely My direct debit shouldn’t double? Any help will be gratefully received as seems impossible to get through to Ovo to speak to someone.
I’ve been testing out a few more possibilities with battery storage over the last few days, in particular to match the recent requests to shift peak power use. I only have one system to experiment with but I’m convinced that most inverter/controller sets must have something like this. I’ve been able to set a series of charge priority times which automatically make best use of external power available (solar PV etc) at certain times. That then leaves energy available from battery storage when it’s really needed - at peak demand times. This seems particularly useful in winter months. Anyone else have any experience to share?
Hi, was wondering if you could help. I am looking to have a gas meter installed and having issues due to the electric meter in property having 2 mpan numbers. Property has storage heaters which I’m having removed and wanting to instal full gas central heating system but energy provider saying the 2 mpan numbers are causing issues for this any help appreciated.

[img]https://uploads-eu-west-1.insided.com/ovo-en/attachment/ba36232c-f401-4fa9-b04a-246e44cbfe93.jpg[/img]We announced some exciting news yesterday after our bid for Spark Energy's customers was successful (after Spark announced that they stopped trading last week). See Ofgem's statement [url=https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/publications-and-updates/ofgem-appoints-ovo-energy-take-customers-spark-energy-supply-limited]here[/url] [b][i]What does this mean?[/i][/b] Well in short, Spark and OVO customers won't see a huge amount change. OVO Group will grow by 290,000 customers, but anyone supplied by Spark will still have all aspects of their account under the Spark brand. So for Spark Energy, it’s business as usual. If you're a Spark Energy customer, with any questions about this change and how it might effect your account, give the Spark Energy customer services team a call: 0345 034 7474, from 9am to 5pm weekdays.
