How to submit a meter reading

Posted on 08 May 2015 by OVO Energy

We've been listening to your helpful comments and suggestions and a lot of your feedback concerning the pages where you submit your meter readings in My OVO. We've been making some changes so that the whole process is much quicker and simpler, and that all of the instructions are clear and easy to understand.

We've changed some of the descriptions on the pages where you submit meter readings so that it's clear what to fill in, as well as adding a final confirmation page which means you can check all of the information you've entered before you submit it to us.
