Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters being rolled out across Great Britain. They show you how much energy you are using in pounds and pence, in near real time and bring an end to estimated bills. Smart meters measure how much gas and electricity you’re using, as well as what it’s costing you, and display this in on a handy in-home display. They also send automatic meter readings to your energy supplier at least once a month, so you will receive accurate, not estimated, bills.
All smart meters are supplied and fitted by your existing gas and electricity supplier. For more information visit the Smart Energy GB website here, contact your supplies or call the Energy Advice Team.
Smart Energy also have a useful video that you may wish to watch.
