    I've had solar panels for 6 years and the meter has always gone in reverse when we don't use all the electricity we generate. Now my supplier has noticed this and installed a new meter, which only goes one way. I have two issues with this:
    (1) It's now impossible to know how much electricity we use - because the meters record the same whether we use what we generate or not;
    (2) There's no record of our contribution to the grid - so who is getting the electricity and how is it accounted for?
    I'm not concerned about the money - the increase in our bills will be quite small - but in my view it's the two-way meter that gives the true measure. Do others agree?

    Economy 7 or White Meter meters have two displays with readings for daytime and night energy use. The display marked 'low' or 'night' shows how many units of off-peak electricity you've used. The display marked 'normal' or 'day' shows how many units of peak electricity you have used. Good question keeps up posting such great post.
