I recently got a smets1 meter on 10June 2020 - it had to be smets1 as we are part of the V2G trial, and have solar elec as well. I’ve just tried pressing “9” on both gas and elec meters to see cumulated readings, and got a bit of a shock, as the numbers were huge! Normally this time of year I would expect 6KWh/day elec, almost zero gas use (we have solar thermal as well as PV, for hot water).
I took photos of the IHD though on the history pages, which I think clears things up. It shows huge cumulative values on the IHD which match pressing button 9, but also luckily the last 12 months useage, which I think are just from us.
I am assuming the meters are 2nd hand, and have not had their history cleared. I hope OVO recognises this! When I look at myOVO - it has the correct elec serial number, but shows I entered a reading of zero on 10June2020, which I did not.
Pressing “9” on the elec meter gives:
IMP KWh 8693.1
It matches the Cuml: 8.693MWh value on the IHD
Pressing “9” on the gas meter gives:
IMP KWh 25792.53
It matches the Cuml figure on the IHD

The online histogram looks like I’m used to - we’ve been with OVO around 6 years with manually read meters, so there’s plenty of old data. I assume that our new meter data isn’t there yet for some reason.
I’m also assuming now the meters are 2nd hand, as the elec one says “year 2014” physically on it, and it’s smets1, which the guy who fitted it said they don’t do anymore.
I will just have to wait to see what OVO’s next bill is - will it be similar to previous, or will it be 3 years gas & elec all in one go ?
Will report when anything changes!
