is this the first time you have used this key because i seem to recall that you have to leave a new key in the meter for a bit before using it.otherwise you may have to get scottish power to get you a new one or reprogram it.dont think they will leave you without electric so they will send someone out.i had to do it a few years back.

Yeah they fitted the meter yesterday but when he left i just took it out of the meter coz he didn't say nothing about leaving it in.

Would it be ok if i just put it in and left it now?

Where do you live? Scottish Power keys can be topped up where there are 'PayPoints' they are the yellow ones, you can get the locator at http://www.paypoint.com/locator.aspx

Just type in your postcode and away you go. Hope that helps. ps E-on are 30% cheaper on key payments that Scottish Power, I know because I changed!!
