    Switching Electric Suppliers 17th May 17 at 12:38 PM
    After using MSE Cheap Energy Club to gain quotes to consider switching from a 'Big Six' supplier and seeing that there were financial benefits to switching, I tried to do so via the MSE site. However a problem has arisen whilst switching in that because I have two separate meters (one for day tariff and one for off peak night tariff) the supplier I intended to switch to cannot cope with the two meters and therefore cant supply me. I need a single combined meter they say?
    Can anyone assist with what companies can offer to supply me or point me to a web site?

    Do not attempt to switch suppliers with your existing metering.

    Hi Kernow1989

    I'm afraid that with your current meter set-up it isn't going to be possible for you to switch via Cheap Energy Club. This is because your meters will be listed in the national database as being 'related' and therefore not compatible with the tariffs shown.

    We do mention this in our FAQs, but I'm afraid if you wanted to switch via us, you'd first need to arrange for your meters to be swapped out (which may not be the best option for you). For more on this general subject area the guide below may help.

    I hope this helps.
