Earlier this year the local electricity company removed our
electromechanical meter (spinning disk) and replaced it with an
electronic one. Since then, I've kept a close eye on monthly
consumption, and the readings appear to be consistent with the old
The meter shows three readings: Normal consumption, Economy 7
consumption, and the total of these two readings. Alongside each reading
is a rate indicator: this is "2" for Normal, "1" for Economy 7, and "E"
for the total.
I took the readings again tonight. Again, the figures were consistent
with expected consumption. However, this time, the "2" rate indicator
was flashing. I don't remember seeing it flashing before. The other two
indicators do not flash.
Anyone seen anything like this before?
