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 www.smartenergygb.org.

There's also more information in this handy leaflet here.
