It depends what sort of meter it is. If it's a low tech meter with a time clock it should change at Midnight to E7 until 7:00am, however, the clocks are frequently out, sometimes by several hours but you should be able to see the time by examining the time clock itself.

If you have a meter with a radio box attached, the answer is a bit more complex, they are switched by a radio signal on a BBC channel and normally the time should be the same, however, the times are varied so not every meter in the UK switches at the same time and sometimes the times vary depending on the load on the grid.

Hope this helps
