White meter electric heating  

A white meter is a special energy meter which offers a different way of energy consumption. With a white meter, you get distinct energy consumption tariffs at different times and when utilized properly will help you to save. In Scotland, they are called Economy 7 meters and these ensure that you have one rate at night and another during the daytime.  If you are planning to install one, then you will need a different kind of meter installed in your property and this costs money. This would also mean that you can’t keep switching from one tariff to another; it would be too costly for you. 

How are you charged using white meter heating? 

With a white meter, you have two different readings, one shows your normal energy consumption and the other will show your off-peak consumption. The two tariffs will feature different rates and fees and a combination of such bills and any outstanding charges will make up the totality of your bill. Again, the charges will vary from company to company and therefore before you settle on a service provider, research and compare as many as possible. 

What tells you’re on the white meter / economy 7? 

The best way to tell if the white meter you installed is effective is to check your energy bill. If you see two different bills and thus two distinct supply numbers, then you are rightly switched.  In case you doubt the system, you can always call in your supplier to check. There is also the Meter Point Access Number (MPAN) which begins with ‘02’. 

How to switch from and to white meter heating? 

Firstly, a white meter will require a secondary meter to be installed and then connected to the standard one that you already have. However, there are costs that you should be ready to incur to switch to a white meter. Using uSwitch, you can get a cost approximate and the best white meter tariff.  Moving from a white meter to the standard one will require the assistance of your electricity provider.  

Pro’s of white meter electric heating 

The white meter is a concept that is great but will only work for you if you properly utilize the off-peak tariff. You must identify your highest energy consumers in your home and then schedule to use them during the off-peak. For instance, you could heat lots of water during this season which you use when tariffs are expensive.  

Again, you must ensure that you have appropriate appliances like a timer which will ensure you limit your energy consumption during the peak times. A white meter also works perfectly for those who love using energy during the evenings. White meter tariffs will charge you higher during the daytime and therefore is you are not sure of your consumption patterns, it could cost you dearly.  

When considering the type of energy tariff to use, the most important thing to consider is your energy consumption patterns. Switching to a white meter would benefit you if your pattern is predictable. If you can adjust to using the energy during the evenings or off-peak, then it would be perfect for you.
