Obscure question, but is anybody aware of the dimensions of the smart gas meters currently being installed by E.on? Specifically, what is the distance from the pipe centres to the very frontmost part of the meter?
My conventional mechanical gas meter is in its own small cupboard that wouldn't accommodate a fatter meter, so it'd be interesting to know if a smart meter is likely to fit before I give up time for an appointment.
(I ask as Seven Trent have just changed my water meter for one that sticks out about 10cm further and means I now need the bathroom panelling to be shifted. Such is progress!)

Ok, so I've just joined EON. I went onto the get a smart meter page and filled in my details. As I'm not on a dual fuel tariff it says that I can't have a smart meter. Is this correct as I'm sure that EON would love to fit a smart electric meter in my home.
Also, do EON do Saturday appointments for smart meter installs?

You can have a Smart elect and not worry about gas. I'm not on dual fuel and I have a Smart elec and the gas is (in theory at least) with them too. The reason being I wanted to keep my legacy type gas meter for now (its complicated to explain and boring)
I'm not sure on the Saturday appointments, a rep will be able to answer that I'm sure.

One of your agents told me this morning that a customer can only request smart meter installation from E.ON after they have been with E.ON for at least 30 days, can you confirm this? I was hoping to request smart meters immediately after my supply went live next Tue 23/7 but It seems I may have to wait 30 days

Hello scones and this varies depending on the make of smart gas meter installed...

She had an email earlier this week from Eon saying it was a condition of her new tariff that she should have smart meters installed

I helped a friend do an energy supply transfer (gas and electric) to Eon which went through earlier this month (8th July). She had an email earlier this week from Eon saying it was a condition of her new tariff that she should have smart meters installed (this was news to me, and I went through all the online switch process with her!) and she should expect a call soon.
So that was only 7 days into the new supply with Eon, so I would imagine depending on how quick your previous supplier is to validate your meter readings, you may be lucky and get offered smart meters fairly quickly. It will of course be totally dependent on availability of appointments in your area.
