Thank you for that quick reply Transparent.  Very helpful.  I was concerned that if I sent an email I would loose the discount, but this is a PM, so must be different.  Bye.

Hi @DreamSteamer and welcome to the Forum.

You can send a Private Message (PM) to one of the Moderators such as @Tim_OVO or @Amy_OVO. Click on their name and you’ll see a new page with details of how wonderful they are.

At the top of that page is a button that reads Send message. Click that to open a PM.

Give enough detail for them to ensure who you are

  • Your name
  • Address and postcode
  • OVO account number
  • Meter serial number or MPAN (printed on each meter)

They can then look up your Economy-7 time-slot from their database and reply to you.


Just joined the forum.  I don’t have either a Twitter or Facebook account  and would loose my quarterly  discount if I emailed OVO directly with my query.   How do I find my Economy 7 times now I have a smart meter?  I have looked at the other posts and it seems that everyone has different times?  I also wonder what happens at the BST/GMT changeover?

Sorry if I seem dumb but I must have missed the obvious somewhere and it is driving me crazy that I can’t find this simple information.

Thanks for your patience!!

What’s your Meter Serial Number (MSN), @Tcc

My postcode is *removed by mod*  and I have a economy 7 smart meter with ovo and I just need to confirm the start and finish times for the night time period. 

Can't find anything on the ovo site regarding the hours etc 

Thanks for the information everyone.

I've moved your query over here, @JeffC, your off peak times are between 2330-0630 and your peak times are between 0630-2330.

As you've got traditional meters BST/GMT won't affect the Economy 7 times, this is because of a time switch mechanism within the meter.
Hi there
I have an OVO Energy account and live in Hackney, London, N16 . There is a dual electricity meter which reads low (night) and high (daytime) tarifs. In addition, I have a timer to set when the electricy can come on and off in my flat. However, I have no way of knowing when the OVO Energy times for peak and off-peak energy charges are. I have seen in some earlier discontinued posts that this is effected by my meter and so I am giving the serial number here: L74A02167. If there is a forum moderator who knows the answer presumably because they work for OVO Energy could you kindly advise. Also is this BST or GMT or whether it makes no difference as the meter automatically makes allowances for the changes? Thank you.
