    White meter (London) electricity suppliers

    White meter (London) electricity suppliers 11th Apr 18 at 1:26 PM
    We have have an ex-SeeBoard white meter, as supplied across London. Its a dual tariff meter, but unlike Economy 7, the night window is 9 hours, not 7, very useful for our storage radiators.

    I've grown to hate EDF, but its hard to find companies that accept white meters, and those that do assume its the Scottish version. Can anyone recommend a supply company that does?

    Not sure of the products and again I have never heard of WM out of scotland. But suppliers only have to accept single erate or e7 meters. (and now maybe e10 meters billed as e7 but replaced with e7 if the meter breaks).

    So you are on a legacy tarrif and only have the area default (SEEB?) and if you go elsewhere SEEB do not have to accept you back.

    So... Do not move unless you want to change to e7.

    your Eco 9 tariff is costing you ! when an Eco 7 tariff could elevate you into the cheapest electricity in the UK using the best Eco 7 tariffs available.
    Hopefully Iresa Energy will return soon with their 11.5 p/kwh day and 8p /kwh night plus 21p daily standing charge( South Yorks area rates ) .Other suppliers are little more expensive but only by 1p /kwh
    The best single rate tariffs can t match that.
    I would take Carrot007s advice re Eco 7 and PaschalFun s advice on an Eco 7 conversion and EDF would be the supplier most likely to do it free..
    Losing 2 hrs off the cheap night rate is nt that vital in the warmer South East as it is up there in the frozen North of Scotland where Eco 10 is common and needed.

    I am so glad you have found it hard to find any other supplier willing to take you on with your current meter.

    You see, only the legacy supplier is obligated to support it ... and as a result, no one else will (should) touch it.

    It's sad to hear to have grown to hate EDF.
    Your only option is to learn to love EDF again (and then possibly discuss with them about changing your metering, and what that will entail with regards to your property)
    Or if you rent - move.
