When you join Members Energy, we need to wait for a 10-day cooling off period to pass. This is a regulatory requirement. After that, we need to wait for your next meter reading to take place. This is also one of the industry rules and ensures we have an accurate meter reading to start your account with.
Most meters are read every three months. If your meter is not due to be read in the near future, you might want to pay for a special meter read. If you have a smart meter, there is no need for a special meter reading as you will switch within a few days of your cooling off period completing.
