    Actually, there is a way to do this. I noticed HUB Energy bit the dust recently and triggered SoLR. Provided you've not signed up to any fixed contracts with E.On yet and you're still on the deemed...

    Thread: App version 2!
    Took me months to find this comment again, since the forum search seems to be really broken and I had to manually trawl every single thread after I lost sight of it.

    It didn't take me that long to...

    Yeah, this doesn't seem right to me either. I've been hearing more and more stories of superfast commissions elsewhere for newly installed meters - which I define as being under two weeks post...

    Hmm... That seems awfully cheap... Especially when I factor in the current averages across the market right now that makes it seem a bit too cheap. Please make sure to only compare prices you're...

    Hi.

    You don't need to contact E.On about this at all. You can simply sign up with a new supplier of your choice and they'll take care of everything for you. This also includes automatically...

    Thanks for the photos.

    Hmm... An unusual configuration there... I don't normally see EDMI electric meters paired with L+G gas meters. The comms appear to be working OK - as you'd otherwise be...

    Hey there!

    I can try to figure out possible culprits, but I could do with some photos of your meters and In-Home Display as this helps me to rule out issues that only apply to S1 or S2 meters...

    Ahh ok, I gotcha. I'm not an E.On or E.On Next customer myself and I have no connections to them outside of this forum so I've never seen any of this first hand.

    Hiya!

    I can check that for you. If it was installed only recently, then it probably is a SMETS2 and should be fine. But if you'd like to, I'd be happy to verify. Please post photos of your meters...

    Hi.

    It sounds like you probably will need to give them a call as there's no live chat and going in via email will probably not be fast enough. I have the tech skills to figure out a way to "block"...

    Hi.

    If you're happy with the rates, it's generally a good idea to lock them in while you still can - because they can and do change daily. If you don't act on the same day quotes are generated,...

    Hmm... It seems as if the Poll got corrupted somehow and all the data from it might have been wiped out by a bug. Either that or no-one responded to the Poll before it closed.

    My understanding is that it can take around six weeks for control of S2 Meters to be transferred between suppliers, however this is based on when the SMETS Commands that initiate the transfer process...

    Heya!

    I have a partial solution here, that might be useful to know. Pretty much all Smart Meters store the reading history locally on the meter itself for up to 13 months - with the oldest data...

    Hiya!

    I can try to help with a quick diagnostic, but I probably don't need to do much detective work to form an initial opinion. It sounds like the meter has failed, but if you could show me some...

    Gotcha, I can definitely verify that as S2. The entire Aclara SGM1400 Series are all S2 meters and your Flonidan UniFlo would be S2 as well, since you can't mix and match S1 and S2 at the same time....

    I'm only a volunteer myself, so I don't have any access to your account or any of the systems involved. It sounds like your Smart Meters might be SMETS1, but I can check them if you'd...
