National Meter Reading Day
Today has been dubbed National Meter Reading Day, and I am encouraging constituents to submit a meter reading to their energy providers today to avoid paying the new higher rates on energy used before April 1st.
If the website of your energy company is down today - it looks as if almost all of them are or have been today - you can photograph the meter reading as of today, and try to submit as soon as possible over coming days.
You don’t need to do submit a reading in this way if you are on a fixed term contract or have a smart meter or use a pre payment meter, but you may still wish to take a picture so you have a record. You can email it to yourself to record the date.
Taking this action should ensure no one risks paying the higher rate for energy used before April 1st.
