Is this even being addressed?? I have just had to climb ladders to input my top up manually!! I can assure you, that was a pain in the ass! NOT impressed! Fix the connection issues PLEASE!!!
I joined Scottish Power in January..My previous supplier fitted my smart metered.From day one my gas smart meter has never worked..How can I get this resolved as have to manually put my gas meter readings in every month.Otherwise the system will estimate it! Thanks.
@Phil11 Hi, Yes it's a common problem that smart meters need manual reading if you switch suppliers. The modern smart meters 'smets2' version should be able to handle the change, but if your meter is more tha 2 years old it is probably 'smets1' which can't handle a supplier change. Why only your gas? If the electric meter is sending readings it means your gas meter was not connected correctly. The electric meter handles all the communications. Or maybe SP have not realised that you have a smart gas meter?? It's worth asking customer services about this. 0800 027 0072
Thanks for the reply, when they installed the gas meter the electric connected ok but the gas would not, the engineer said , it's not connected,and I would need to contact the energy supplier,to get someone out to fix it..Then we went into a yr lockdown 🤒. ScottishPower is showing on my inside box but gas one is not so will call that number that you put down.
Last Friday (28/05/2021) I had a PAYG electric smart meter fitted.
This afternoon (03/06/2021) I noticed that the display unit had "frozen), the time display was not advancing and was stuck at 13:02, this was at 15:00.
As per the FAQs, I powered the unit down, waited a few minutes and powered it up again. The unit seemed to go through its start up sequence OK and it had a strong Wi-Fi signal. The time display was at 0:00 and the Balance display showed four dashes and "Waiting for balance".
After fout hours it was still displaying the above and I decided to reboot the device again (17;00), the same sequence happened and at the writing of this post the display is still not showing any data.
@JClark On new smart meters the monitor often loses contact several times in the first few weeks as the system gets firmware upgrades from the supplier. This is inconvenient on credit accounts, but quite serious on PAYG accounts because it makes topups more difficult. The unit will come back to life and when it does put in a good amount of credit to last you in case it fails again. After a few weeks it should settle down so that it is always available.
Moved into a new built property with smart meters installed by Scottish power. Scottish power is energy supplier of the property. Smart meters, for gas and electricity are not sending readings to supplier and inhome display unit is also not connected to meters. I caled scottish power's different teams(customers services & smart meter team) few times and they advised to wait as an engenier vivist has been requested to fix problem. It is more than a month now waiting for this visit. Can it be expedited.
