Solar panel meter reverse

Has anyone with solars noticed that their meters are running backwards?
All Eon have to say is that I should replace it with a new one which can't go backwards and thereby stopping me from knowing!
Sounds like it's all for their gain as always...

I had an old meter that ran backwards. After 3 years I told Good Energy about it and they replaced it the following week. They already pay you for everything you generate and estimate that you export 50% so pay you extra for that, which is generous, so 'winding back the meter' to save paying for what you import does seem a bit unfair.

If you have any old style meter and take advantage of the feed in tariff your meter will indeed go backwards. If I ws with one of the big 6 energy suppliers I'd keep very quiet about it and if your supplier ever notices pretend you hadn't noticed. They will not be able to claim money from you retrospectively. If your supplier is one of the nicer energy companies (e.g. the very cuddly Good Energy) I'd tell them. The result will be that your meter is replaced.
