All homes in Britain will have their gas and electricity meters replaced by smart meters as part of Government plans over the next few years.
Smart meters measure your home energy use by taking meter readings up to every half hour and sending them to us automatically.^
We're rolling out smart meters to all our customers over the next few years. We'll write to you with more information when we're ready to install your smart meter.
When we install a smart meter in your home we’ll also give you a smart energy monitor. The monitor is wirelessly connected to your smart meter(s) and shows how much energy you're using.
Find out more about smart energy monitors.
If you have any questions about smart meters, you want to tell us you are interested in having one or even if you want to tell us you wish to opt out of having a smart meter fitted, then please use our online form.
We'll be recruiting staff over the coming months for our Smart Metering roll-out. Why not join us?
