Hi,

I've just joined Ovo and have been asked for my opening meter readings.

I have a smart meter installed from my previous provider (EDF). I have a reading of 435.564 kWh. Do I put all 6 numbers as my meter reading?

Thanks,
Johnny

Always chop off the decimal points, they only want the whole numbers. But Do include any Zeros at the Beginning.... so problee 00435, or similar :)

just did a sum... if you give OVO 435564 as a reading and EDF bill you to it, their final bill would be just shy of £60,000.

and you don't want that 😉

I recently signed up to OVO again after switching to another supplier. I have been asked to supply opening meter readings but I am on a smart meter system for both electricity and gas (installed by OVO) - do I still need to manually enter a reading? Or do I need to let OVO know that I have smart meters?

These opening readings will need to be submitted manually @Mynamewontfitin (great username btw!) - we usually need a few days to take over the smart meter and communicate with it remotely.

See this topic thread for info on how to read and submit!
