Back in December I had a letter from SSE which said they were updating their systems and not to submit my readings at the end of the quarter (Dec 31st) and that they would contact me in mid Feb 2015 to ask me for my readings. Not heard anything as yet just wondered if anyone else that uses SSE for FiTs had. If not I'll give them a call to ask what is happening.

Thanks

As far as I can remember they asked that no reading be submitted before the end of January, I sent my readings on the first of Feb and have only had the automated email.

They didn't want my normal February reading and said they would be sending a letter out this month. Nothing yet though.

According to my letter of Nov last year the date could be anytime up to end of March for me.-If no payent for oct to dec 2014 payment by then then they have broken their contract! Or so they tell me-i think.

I've heard nothing.

SSE have been consistently late paying my FITs (EVERY single payment has been later than the ofgem rules). This appears to be another ploy to justify providing no payments at all for a 12week period. I don't imagine they'll be adding interest to the many late payments they'll end up making.

My last reading was sent at the end of November.  Under the old schedule the next reading would have been due at the end of next week.

STILL nothing whatsoever from them about the new reading schedules and method.

To give a small amount of credit, I did receive my last payment just 2 weeks after sending the reading, much quicker than it had been lately.

Just had an email from them saying they are still working on the new system.

to ensure people don't miss payments they requested a meter reading, which I submitted in the normal way.

As its the end of February and no letter has been received I called then to ask what is happening. I was told that letters are going out "as we speak" and that they said that the new payments database was taking longer to set up than planned and they had now reopened the old database to process payments. So I could submit my readings back on the old schedule. I asked about my Dec 31st 2014 reading and was told the reading MUST be after 11th January 2015, but if I submitted the current reading this would be processed. Readings can be submitted as before by email, online or by phone.

We would normally have submitted a reading for 31st January. Given the lack of an update from SSE & the comments here I've just submitted 28th February readings by phone. They said letters should be going out shortly, but only as a "to keep you informed" exercise. They also said that unless I hear otherwise I should submit out next reading at the end of April, i.e. as per our old quarterly schedule, so presumably they're at least allowing for the possibility that it could be months more before the new system is in place...

They have definitely improved the system regardless of new process operational or not.
Got the email (as per ProDave) and submitted webform reading on 28th Feb and got a returned email confirmation.
Got further email on 14th March stating "will receive payment in due course.
Just noticed transfer went into the bank today 19th.
Happy days  extrahappy

I submitted my readings today as that would have kept me on my original payment schedule but the woman taking them didn't want my end of March readings as well.  Highly unusual as they normally do to ensure the correct rates are placed against the correct dates! facepalm I decided to just give her my readings up to the end of March as she said that 'letters would be sent out' on the 9th May informing everyone of their new submission dates.

Let's hope that they make a better job of the 'update' the second time around?

Hi
Phoned readings in yesterday.
They took end of March and end of April readings to take into account of rate increase.
Said the new system would be up and running within 2 weeks and we would get letters through the post soon with the new dates on. Mind you they said that last year!!
At least we are still getting paid and it does seem faster than before. Hopefully the new system will work, I just hope they keep it simple.

Just as slow as ever for me - still not heard a peep out of them, and no money in the bank account.
