Smart Meters


smart meters

Did you know your energy supplier is responsible for fitting you a smart meter before the end of 2020?

Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters and offer a range of intelligent functions. The big difference is readings are sent automatically to the energy supplier using a GPS signal. The data is encrypted for security and no personal information is included. There is also an in-home display (usually a small portable device giving you details about the energy you are using.

What are the benefits?

Real-time information – see exactly what you use and when, manage your energy use and save money

No manual readings – no need to wait in for your supplier to visit your home

No estimated billing – no unexpected high bills, only pay for the energy you actually use, helping you budget better

No cost to upgrade – the cost of your meter and its maintenance is built in to your energy bills

Easier switching – smoother and faster to switch suppliers and deals

Flexibility – pre-payment customers given alternative and automatic top-up options so you won’t run out of credit

You can find out all about smart meters and how to get one at
