I have asked for my old 3 tier meter to be swapped for an E7 meter. How long does this process take?
I need to do this as despite my energy useage being lower these days, SP are billing me three times higher than they used to and so I simply cannot afford £200+ per month now for a two bed cottage (heated by a wood burning stove!)
The Economy 2000 tariff is intended for medium capacity storage boilers providing space heating or both space and water heating. Electricity for all other purposes must be taken on Domestic tariff and a combined Daily Service Charge applies. The Economy 2000 supply is made available for periods at ScottishPower’s discretion totalling 18 hours per day, but with the proviso that no interruption will exceed 2 hours. It is important, therefore, that the boiler stores sufficient energy to supply space (and possibly water) heating requirements for 2 hours.
Direct acting boilers without storage capacity are not permitted to make use of Economy 2000
Please call the call centre to discuss options - depending on the system within you property you may or may not be able to have economy 7 - sometimes we'll send a customer liaison officer out to check and discuss.
