It's easy when switching electricity supplier to us, but sometimes having a multi rate meter can make the process a little more tricky.
Your choice of supplier and tariff may be limited. You'll need to contact the supplier you'd like to join to see if they can support your set-up. If they can, you'll need to let them know what type of meter you have in your home.
If other suppliers can't support your meter, you can get your meter changed to a more commonly supported meter type. This can make your electricity switch much easier and give you more options when you compare energy prices, suppliers and tariffs. It could also change how your heating system works, which may mean you lose certain features and you may need some re-wiring in your home. Some larger suppliers will offer a single rate tariff option for some multi rate meters, which removes the need for any change to your meter or wiring and makes switching supplier easier.
It's best to check whether changing your meter will suit you and your home better before you do it as you can't go back on to certain tariffs if you change your mind.
