Why does 'National Meter Reading Day' last a week at EDF – and do I need to take part?

Meter Reading Day runs from 30 September to 7 October at EDF!

To keep things running smoothly for you around National Meter Reading Day, we're giving you a whole week to get your readings in.

Do I need to give a reading?

What is National Meter Reading Day?

People on variable tariffs will see their unit rate go up on 1 October 2022. National Meter Reading Day encourages them to give a meter reading around this time.

Why is it important?

If you're prices are going up on 1 October, your meter reading will tell us how much energy you've used before the price rise. You'll then pay the lower rate for this energy.

When is it?

At EDF, 'Meter Reading Day' runs from 30 September to 7 October 2022.

Who's it for?

Meter Reading Day is for you if your prices are going up on 1 October 2022 – but not if you have a smart meter that sends readings for you (we'll use the readings we get from your smart meter).

What happens after I give my meter reading?

Here's what happens if you give us a meter reading between 30 September to 7 October 2022:

  • We'll use your reading to make sure you pay the lower rate for the energy you use before the price rise
  • You should see your meter reading updated in MyAccount within a few days
  • If you pay by Direct Debit Whole Amount or by card, cash or cheque, your balance won't get updated in MyAccount; this will happen when it's time for your next bill
Warning: Do you pay by Budget Direct Debit?

The reading you give for Meter Reading Day won't lead to a payment amount change (this will happen after your next Direct Debit review). So if your prices are going up, we recommend you increase your monthly payment amount by at least 25% to stay on track to cover your energy costs for the year.
