Meter Readings and rate changes

December 12, 2010 Comments off

In the UK, a lot of suppliers are increasing their rates just now (e.g. Scottish Power on 25th November, SSE on 1st December, British Gas on 10th December and npower on 4th January 2011).

To update your rates in the app, go to the Settings screen, select your meter then scroll to the bottom of the page. Tap on the row that says “Copy current to …. today”. This will create a copy of your current rates and add a new row that says “Rates to …. (today’s date)”. The app will then use your “old” rates up to “today”, and your current rates from “tomorrow” onwards. Once you have copied your rates, you are then free to edit your current rates to reflect what you supplier is now charging you.

Over time you could end up with multiple sets of rates, applying to different periods. You can edit the dates to which they apply (or even your old rates) by selecting the Previous Rates rows.
