    Help with Scottish Power PrePayment Meter 3rd Oct 17 at 1:27 PM
    We moved into the property in August and arranged to have both our gas and electric meters changed over from prepayment to credit.

    The gas one was changed over with no issue but when the engineer came to change the electric one he said he couldn't as our main circuit box would need moved.

    We are wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation?

    Ahh yeah sorry that would help

    He said he couldn't fit it in the space ... Apparently only needs moved an inch or two. We were just wondering if it's worth getting it all moved and the upheaval or just stick with prepayment.

    Sorry, that doesn't make much sense to me.

    Electric credit meters are available that are no bigger (usually smaller) than an electric pre-payment meter.

    e.g.

    This is a SP Smart (Now dumb) credit meter. It is quite big, compared to others
