Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters. They enable users to see exactly how much energy they’re using in pounds and pence, whilst sending the information directly to suppliers. This means accurate billing and no need for suppliers to visit your property to read your meter.
Information from gov.uk states:
“Installing smart meters could save savvy consumers up to £250 on their bills, while slashing countrywide carbon emissions by 45 million tonnes – the equivalent of taking 26 million cars off the road for a year.”
Energy suppliers are due to set ambitious targets for smart meter installation, with 21.5 million already in place. Prior to lockdown, 19,000 smart meter installations were taking place per day. Flexibility is being given around current targets due to the impact of lockdown restrictions.
