    You just missed the double referral week which is gutting. Let me know if you need a code if Russinating doesn’t get back to you.

    I was with EON for around 10 years, but their tariff prices were getting ridiculous and so switched to Bulb energy last year - no issues so far, just cheaper Elec/Gas!

    They currently have a referral bonus of £50 for referrer and £50 for person signing up.

    So what's the deal with smart meters these days?

    House I've just bought has a Secure Liberty 100 installed and all working (the display doodad connects and shows usage, for the gas as well).

    I'd quite like to keep the functionality, but are we still stuck in this daft situation where you can't switch suppliers and just switch the meter over?

    I believe the ones made by Secure work with all suppliers

    I've recently found out my dad signed up to Octopus Energy, seems quite expensive though. I guess it varies post code to post code, but I'm only a couple of miles up the road and find Avro to be way cheaper.

    Post edited to avoid breaking rules.

    No your not. You can only ask, and then offer to send one in trust. It is all in the OP.

    Think you're right - the SMETS1 meters are certainly OK with Octopus AFAIK

    My Secure SMETS 1 shows me energy usage by the half hour with Bulb. Currently moving to Octopus to take advantage of their Go tariff as we have an EV.

    Drop me a Trust with your meter serial number (combination of numbers and letters above the barcode on the meter) and ill do a sly check for you at work. :)

    Got a £160 refund from Bulb on account closure after moving to Pure Planet. Still disappointed they wanted to put my DD up £25 a month when I was in credit that much.

    Whoever you change to ask for variable payments, a lot will do it for you that way your balance stays at £0.

    Having been with them now for 6mths+, I'd have no hesitation in recommending Octopus
