How much does it cost to move my meter?
The cost will vary. If your energy supplier’s handling the move, they’ll give you a quote when they receive your request.
The good news is that if you’re not happy with the proposed amount, there are a few things you might be able to do to cut costs. Since the meter move has to be done by your current energy supplier, you could try shopping around, to see if switching energy suppliers produces a better quote for the work.
Priority customers might be able to have their meter moved by their energy supplier for free, if they can prove they’re having trouble reading or accessing it. This could include pensioners, people with a disability and those suffering from a long-term illness.
If your (LDC) or gas transporter will be doing the work, you’re probably looking at a quote of around £400 upwards. Some may even charge more than £1,000, depending on the scope of work that needs to be done.
