As I have TRIED to say above. It depends on how it is set up.
Some dual-rate meters have the timing embedded in them so there are no external timers. These meters have two outputs:
a 24 hour one for your lights etc
an E7 one that only becomes live at off peak times. These usually have a separate consumer unit for the off peak devices.
In some set ups there are external timers. Some of these can be provided as part of the supply arrangements (ie a timer supplied by the lekky company). These effectively work the same as an embedded time.
In some set ups, the meter provides cheap electricty to everything at off peak times, so it is uip to you to install timers that only switch on when its cheapest.
So, again, we need "PICHERS" of the output side of the meter to advise further.
How do you know the timers are the responsibility of EDF??
Everything after the meter is yours and thus your responsibility. This includes the meter tails from the meter to your consumer unit.
I would agree though, that at the very least they should have informed you that the new meter was no longer switching the supply so you could have installed your own timeclock etc.
Is there actually a time clock present?
