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.

Hi Darran,
Many thanks for your help.I am pleased to report that Tim has come back and answered all my questions.
I note your recommendation with regards to the the use of Facebook or Twitter but not everyone uses those means of communication, myself included. As the customer base of OVO increases that may be something OVO needs to examine to ensure that communications are inclusive.
Have a great day! 🙂
Thanks for the information everyone.

I suggest you send a Private Message to one of the Moderators like @Tim_OVO or @Lucy_OVO. You can do this by clicking on their name to view their User Profile. The Send Message link is at the top.

Us general Forum members obviously can't look up your account details!

Although I'm a customer like you, I got to sit down for an afternoon cuppa with @Tim_OVO in Bristol last week.

I had unfairly imagined the four or five Moderators sitting with their feet on the desk, drinking tea, eating toast and watching their screens as we all solved each others problems!

What I learned is that they also manage all the live social-media feeds for the company. So their workload can vary enormously, depending on what's trending. Give them at least a full day to bounce your message to the relevant Dept and then get back to you.

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, I still can’t see the times for my particular meter could you just tell me please. Thanks.

Updated on 22/09/20: See this topic where users have been PMing @Tim_OVO to confirm the off peak and peak times of their meter. It changes depending on the region, and some meters change with BST and some don’t!

Alternatively, contact the Support team via Facebook or Twitter, or through webchat via the Help Centre,

@cmpblls Customers can contact us via phone, email, letter or via Facebook/Twitter. We like to think that we make it hassle free for our customers to contact us should they need to.

The Forum has so much helpful information on here and it's forever growing. We really encourage other users to help one another out like @Transparent has done here.

As Darran mentioned, if you have anything that is account specific or requires a customer service advisor to help, you'll need to contact us via one of the channels mentioned above. :)

Looking forward to seeing what other topics you get involved in!

Hi @cmpblls,
I deduced the Moderator Team members by reading through the Forum topics.
Apart from @Tim_OVO, I think there another four:
@Darran_OVO, @Lucy_OVO, @Nancy_OVO and @Emily_OVO.
They seem to have different areas of expertise, which you can deduce by looking at their online Profiles.
According to the Fun-Friday-Facts thread, Emily & Nancy both like Marmite, but I don't think that impairs them too much from looking up Economy-7 times :8
