Smart meters let you know exactly how much energy you’re using, hour by hour and day by day. A Smart Meter is an electricity or gas meter with the ability to talk to other devices, other services and to us, your energy supplier. It will provide you with real-time information regarding your energy consumption and costs which will all be visible via your free In-Home Display. You will receive this on the installation day once the Smart Meter has been installed.
How Smart meters make your life easier.
- Hate the hassle of submitting meter reads?
With a Smart Meter you’ll never have to worry about putting a reminder to submit a read or even submitting one. Your Smart Meter will automatically do this for you. This means estimated billing will be a thing of the past as we’ll be able to use your actual meter reads to provide you with an accurate bill so you will only pay for what you’ve used. Nothing more, nothing less.
- Keep an eye on your energy costs
It will also allow you to monitor your energy usage whether it is to meet the budget target you have set yourself or simply just to keep an eye on your energy consumption. It will all be achievable as you’ll be able to see exactly how much you’re using and what it’s costing you; every pound, every pence.
- Look back on what you have used
You will also be able to view your historic usage and compare with current data, making you more conscious about the energy you are using – boiling a kettle costs more than you think!
- Change your tariff
Smart Meters are clever and can be remotely configured to different tariffs and payment types.
