    solar panels and direct debits with an old style meter. 12th Oct 16 at 7:19 PM
    I have solar panels and an old style meter that runs backwards when my panels are working.
    I have been unable to give meter readings so my electricity supplier(s) (I changed to co op a while ago and was with edf.)
    have me on a direct debit.

    My question is am I losing out when I change suppliers?
    I cannot give accurate readings because of my solar panels affecting the meter so how do I know I have not been ripped off in the past and if I change and have overpaid?

    Hears hoping someone can figure this out.

    Many Thanks.

    You should ask your current supplier to change your meter. I would be more concerned with you defrauding the energy suppliers. How can you have been ripped off if the meter is going backwards?
