Re: Smart Meter installation when one is already fitted form a previous supplier
I asked the same question of Scottish power sales about 4 days ago and was advised I can get my old Smets1 meters changed to smets2 as my ihd is broken and so signed up up for a change of supply

Re: Smart Meter installation when one is already fitted form a previous supplier

Smart meter with EON was around £3 -4 per day with Scottish Power it's gone to £15-20 per day 

obviously not compatable so turned it off

@currieman   The Display (not the meter) may not be compatible with SP's tariff but the meter readings in kwh and m3 should still be correct so they will help you to keep an eye on power usage.

Is it a button on the meters if so which one ?

@currieman   Your hand held Display will show meter readings in kWh and m3, it is £ values that are not correct.

Your actual meters will also display meter readings, if they have a number pad press 9, if not experiment with the buttons that are there.  The meters themselves only record kWh or m3 (electric and gas respectively) There are no £ money values on the meters  It is easier and more convenient to get meter readings from the hand held Display   The Display is not a meter, it gets data from the actual meters and tries to calculate £ values but often gets the money values wrong

Re: Smart Meter installation when one is already fitted form a previous supplier

@Lisbon   Lets suppose your meter was installed by British Gas for example. It rings up the telephone number for BG and sends a reading. But now you have switched to SP, so when your meter rings BG the call is rejected. Modern smart meters ring up a Government number for the DCC computer, from there any supplier can log in and get their readings.  All the old smart meters will get upgraded in 2020 but until that is done you have to send manual readings.

This is a well known fact, welcome to our world.
