    Swapped Meter

    Swapped Meter 17th Apr 18 at 12:30 PM
    We were on a prepay meter with EDF, then about 3 weeks ago I moved to Scottish Power Prepayment with my plan being to move to the credit meter a few weeks later.

    Our credit meter has now been installed and am on their standard tariff.

    Have done a search on the Energy Helpline Site and a few other suppliers are coming out cheaper, would/could I jump to another supplier.

    Will Scottish Power throw a wobbly due to me just using them to get a credit meter?

    No, if you are on an SVT then you can leave at any time without penalty. Whatever you do, get off Standard tariff-it's the most expensive.

    I did the same when I changed from Eon to Npower.

    Eon was the supplier when I moved in and they swapped the pre-pay to a credit meter and I changed supplier a couple of days later.

    We still do this matelodave. Although we don't charge to swap from a prepayment to a credit meter, customers do need to pass an external credit check. Also, there can't be any unpaid debt left on the prepayment meter and it can't have been fitted on a warrant or as part of a pre-disconnection visit. If none of this applies and the credit check is okay, we'll be happy to change these meters.

    Glad we were able to help matelodave.
