Take control of your energy with a smart meter

No more meter read submissions. No more estimated bills. No more hassle. Smart meters are the next generation of energy meters that will give you a more accurate view of your consumption and give the industry more data to manage supply and demand at a national level.

We are installing a new generation of smart meters as part of a nation-wide rollout initiated by the Government which enables customers and small businesses to upgrade at no extra cost by 2020*. You don't have to have one, but we would really recommend it. Because rather than just a Government initiative, we view the smart meter rollout as an opportunity to make the energy industry better. We think it's the start for something exciting for the business community.

The smart grid

The UK is switching to a smart grid, which will be fully functional by 2030. It’ll reduce costs, help integrate renewable energy systems and efficiently manage the supply and demand of power. Smart meters will play a big part in the switch and this is a great chance to get your business moving forward.

How does the smart grid work? You can read more in this guide from the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Smart Energy GB website.
