A smart meter can help identify when a lot of energy is being used and help us use less

Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters being rolled out across Great Britain. A smart meter helps you take control of your energy use, by showing you exactly what you are spending in pounds and pence; no more estimated bills or supplying meter readings. A smart meter can help identify when we’re using a lot of energy and might want to make changes to this. If you use the information shown on your in-home display to reduce your energy use, you could cut costs and become more energy efficient.

There is no additional cost for installation of your smart meter and with a new, second-generation smart meter, you should be able to switch energy supplier and tariff with no interruption.

To request your smart meter, contact your energy supplier.
