A few providers will allow you to move to a standard or dual fuel tariff without changing your meter – they’ll simply add the day and night readings together to get your total usage, and then charge you a single rate for it. These suppliers will let you do this:
- First Utility
To get the tariffs, answer ‘no’ to the ‘Do you have an Economy 7 meter’ question in the registration or click the ‘Edit Details' section in Cheap Energy Club, then apply for the switch as normal. Make sure the supplier you’re switching to can add the two Economy 7 readings together though – your application to switch is likely to be rejected if not.
You can also check with your supplier if it’ll replace your Economy 7 meter with a standard, single-rate meter – many suppliers offer to do this for free.
