  • Just checking Bev...I thought there were.
    I think I've developed a Smart Meter allergy, either that or I've been abducted by aliens...

  • Surly some E7 meters must of been changed. Other suppliers have E7 tariffs and customers with smet2 meters. As far as i can tell the issues only arise if a customer has or had storage heaters/under floor heating as the 5th wire from the meter that back in the day used to control them cannot be accommodated into smet2 meters.

  • hi jon1
    I don't understand why it's the 5th wire that's the issue, I think it depends on whether there is a circuit which only energises at low rate.
    ​ That's what I'm trying to establish. My E7 for example has a radio teleswitch which tells the meter when it's low rate (5th wire) but all my electrics are energised all the time. ​My understanding is the switching times are then done by the meter so the 5th wire isn't needed.
    (as opposed to having a circuit which only energises when it's low rate, like storage heaters on a timer)

    I'm trying to establish exactly what's going on here...

  • My understanding is that some storage heating systems worked from a 5th port on the meter and on new meters there is no 5th port, thus leaving customers without their storage heaters.
    Having said that i think there is a degree of everyone being put in the same basket so when asked if you say you got storage heaters or possibly even E7 it is presumed a meter cant be replaced.

    If you think thats bad im even further down the list as ive got a 3phase meter.

  • yep but in a lot of cases the only thing the 5th wire controls is whether the meter is at low or high rate (mine) and agreed that's what I'm thinking (basket)

    for 3Ф, 3 single rate meters was good enough once upon a time.
    ​Given the excellence of engineering in the UK it never ceases to amaze me just how badly the government can screw up a major engineering project (and then try and blame everyone else).
