Dual rate meter, no storage heaters - do I submit my readings as Economy 7?

I've just submitted my first readings. The options were Single rate meter or Economy 7. Well it's not single rate so I selected Economy 7 and submitted the Day and Night readings. But my previous statements don't mention Economy 7 only Day and Night rates. We have no storage heaters, we have a new air source heat pump, so how am I going to be charged?

This sounds like an Economy 7 meter, @Bob Pierce. 7 hours of off peak (Night) usage. It might be Economy 10 maybe, but either way you will submit the off peak reading to the 'Night' register and the peak reading to the 'Day' register.

As you don't have storage heaters, it might not be worth having a Day and Night (Economy 7) tariff. This topic is about switching to a single rate tariff: https://forum.ovoenergy.com/switching-new-to-ovo-32/can-i-switch-to-ovo-and-go-from-economy-7-to-a-single-rate-meter-and-tariff-1163
