Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost and timeframe for getting a new gas or electricity meter?

The cost of a new gas or electricity meter installation depends on the size and type of the required meter, where you want it installed, the layout of your premises and whether it is located on the national grid.

When you call us, we will ask you to send across your site plan which will aid our designers to draw up a reliable plan and costing for the metering services you require. By inspecting your property or site in detail, we can determine your needs and provide your gas or electricity meter at the best possible price.

Other factors that could influence timeframe and cost include: the complexity of the work required, the geographical location of the property or site (e.g., remote locations may require extra planning), and any unforeseen delays such as unexpected weather or ground conditions.

Do you also supply gas and electricity?

It is important to note that Crown Energy is not a utility supplier. We provide the full scope of works needed for meter installations, disconnections, upgrades, removals, and relocation.

It’s beneficial if you have already contacted an energy provider or you have one in mind. But don’t worry if you haven’t. We’ve built up relationships across the board so we can help you find the right provider for you and your home, business, or commercial site.

As part of our metering services, we work closely with nationwide utility providers to find you the most competitively-priced and reliable supplier for your area, the type of meter you require, and the load you need for your home, business premises, or commercial project.

Can you give me a cost for a meter disconnection, removal, or upgrade?

Yes, we can. Our team along with a nationwide network of trusted providers is equipped to design a plan and find you the best price for the metering work and services you require. Whether you are a homeowner, a business, or a company overseeing a large commercial project, Crown Energy takes all the stress out of your individual metering needs.

The cost for our metering services depends entirely on the size and design of your home or site. By looking at your requirements in detail, we will be able to provide a fast, free and no obligation plan and costing which covers all your utility requirements.

Our energy experts are committed to providing the best quality meters on time and without going over budget. That’s why so many homeowners and businesses come to us with their meter needs.

I want my gas meter moved – how can you help?

If you need your gas meter moving, we have a specialist team on hand to assist you every step of the process. The pipe attached to the meter will determine how far we can move it.

Before we can provide you with a plan and costing, we will need some information:

  • Address of property of work required
  • Full name and telephone number
  • How far the external pipework is that is needed to move the gas meter
  • How far the internal pipework is that is needed to reconnect the gas boiler to the new location.

Not every gas meter move is the same, so the cost of each job varies based on your requirements. After having an initial conversation, we can determine the distance from the existing location you wish to move the meter, or if the meter is being moved inside/outside and if the gas supply pipe needs to be altered in any way.

Once we have the above information we can provide you with an accurate cost breakdown as part of a no-obligation quote.

Does Crown Energy provide meters for housing developers?

Yes, Crown Energy can help to get your development connected. As a UK leader in gas and electricity meter installations, we plan bespoke metering solutions to meet the unique specifications of your job. Whether it’s a domestic, trade or commercial gas and electricity meter installations, you can count on us to deliver the full utility infrastructure in your new development. Meter installations require in-depth and complex design and planning solutions, which is why we manage the whole process for you – from costing to completion – including: installation, disconnection, removal, relocation, or upgrades.

To ensure a seamless delivery we’ll need some information which you can provide when speaking to one of our friendly team, allowing us to quickly calculate which meter is required from the details you share. We may also need to complete a full site investigation, depending on the complexity of the job.

We will work closely with you to ensure you receive a solution that’s not just right for your needs, but one that will be supplied on budget and on time. Choose us, and we’ll save you significant time by taking the hassle out of getting your development connected.

What are the different types of electricity meters?

There are four different types of electricity meters: dial, smart, digital, and electronic. They are broken down into two categories: credit and prepayment meters.

Credit meters track the amount of electricity consumed and then a bill is generated based on the increased numerical values given on the display. A prepayment meter needs to be topped up with credit and provides an allocated value of electricity remaining on a display.

No matter the size of your property or project, our aim remains the same: to make every gas, and electricity meter installation simple, whilst keeping costs and timescales to a minimum.

What our customers say

We dealt with Crown Energy as we were trying to arrange to have a 3 phase meter fitted at our business premises. Crown had been suggested to us previously so we decided to use their services. We'd been having huge difficulties trying to sort out the meter for several weeks and initially spoke with Tegan. Tegan was very calm and reassured us that Crown would be able to help with this. Less than three weeks after contacting Crown Energy, we have our meter fitted. We are so grateful to Tegan, and the team at Crown Energy, thank you so much.

This is the most helpful and supportive company I have worked with to date. Answered all of my questions (and I've had many). This company really go the extra mile to look after their customers and become your 'friends on the end of the phone' when having any issues. Special thanks to Rheann and Lee for all their hard work. I've not had to lift a finger and they have made the whole process completely stress free. Would highly recommend this company to anyone.

Hi, we hired Crown Energy utilities to move our gas meter to outsideon the wall of our house. They said it will take up to 6 weeks for works to start but they came 2 weeks later after payment was made.

The men turned up on the day they said it was booked in for and they were excellent in the work they did, the men were very polite. Thank you to your brilliant team for all the work you did it was well worth the money it cost us. We would definitely recommend them and hire them again.
