Removal of old meters?

posted by JenniS | 6 months ago

If I get a Smart meter from ScottishPower will they disconnect and remove my old gas and elec meters?  They're on the front of the house and are really unsightly. Thanks.

Sorry, they put the new meter where the old meter was, if you want them to be moved you have to pay.

Similar situation: I'm having a 'Smart Meter' installed soon, but don't use gas (there's a meter), can they remove the gas meter at the same time?, I keep getting standing charge bills for something I don't use. How do I arrange this?

@Steevey    You can ask SP for an electric-only tariff, customer services 0800 027 0072.

You can also have your gas supply capped off, but it is better to leave it live in case you change your mind in the future. Gas heating is very much cheaper than electric heating.

Thanks Davc, I've now arranged for the removal of the meter (capping as suggested) via the customer services number which was a breeze, much appreciated.
