Hi Mark,
Many thanks for your clarification. A word of caution for everybody. We are moving into an apartment with an ElectraMate 2000 hot water system. Printed on it is ‘please ensure this equipment runs with Economy 10’. The same meter has been in place for 12 years (since the flats were built). It would seem that the previous owners were operating on the basis of an E10 tarrif (putting dishwasher on etc.) but were being charged for an E7 tarrif. Goodness knows how much extra they were paying. In fact when we purchased the property the then owner and the Estate Agent informed us that everything ran on the E10 tarrif.
We use OVO in our present property and are going to use them in the new property. They have already agreed to replace the meter with the correct E10. They were also very pleasant whilst working through the problem, unlike EDF.
