Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters which will replace the traditional meters in our homes.
Installed by your energy supplier, they are the simple way to keep control of your energy use. The smart meter rollout is an essential technology upgrade, unprecedented in its scale, to improve Great Britain’s energy infrastructure.
Between now and 2020, every household in England, Scotland and Wales will be offered a smart meter at no extra cost. Smart meters come with an in-home display which shows how much gas and electricity you’re using as you use it, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. In-home displays are designed to be simple and easy to use.
At a glance, you can see on the handheld screen whether your electricity use is high, medium or low. Seeing how much energy you use as you use it means you will be able to more accurately manage your energy costs, usage and budgets.
Smart meters take regular readings and share these automatically with your energy supplier. This means your bills will be accurate, not estimated.
