Eon do that with me too. About once a year they tell me I don't need to do it - and to expect the meter reader on that occasion. On the other hand British Gas do not send any invitations to give them a reading. Then they get shirty because you haven't sent them any. They are apparently only obliged to read your meter once every two years. They claim that they mentioned this change somewhere in a bill or something.
