We're installing smart meters for free
Smart meters are being installed by every energy supplier as part of a nationwide upgrade to the energy system.
There are lots of things that make smart meters so smart:
Automatic meter readings
Smart meters take your readings, so you don't have to
See what you're spending
Track your live energy usage with your In-Home Display and get charts in the app
More accurate statements
Wave goodbye to estimated bills
You'll have a safe, hassle-free installation
It takes around 2 hours for an expert engineer to do the installation. They'll remove your old gas and electricity meters and replace them with smart meters. And to keep everyone safe, they'll be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), including a face mask and gloves.
See how much energy you've used in the app
A big perk of having a smart meter is being able to understand more about your energy usage. And we've built charts in the app showing how much energy you've used, and when. So it's easy to spot any unexpected spikes, or opportunities to save on your bills.
Every smart meter comes with a screen
An In-Home Display (IHD) is a gadget that connects to your smart meter to show how much energy you're using. It's useful for understanding more about where your energy goes and setting daily, weekly or monthly budgets for gas and electricity.
You'll be helping the UK grid get greener
Smart meters help suppliers to forecast demand and source greener energy for the grid. So, as well as some pretty nifty home benefits, they're an important step towards managing our national energy better in the future.
