Smart is coming

Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters that could help you take control of your energy and help the environment.

More information

This is a Government initiative, which aims for every household in the UK to have smart meters fitted by the end of 2020.

More information

The benefits

  • NO MORE manually submitting meter reads*
  • NO MORE meter readers coming to your door
  • NO MORE estimated bills - accurate ones every time.

Smart meters automatically send us your monthly meter readings. *In some rare instances you may have to submit a meter read.

More information

Your In-Home Display allows you to take more control of your energy.
You can:

  • see how much gas and electricity you're using
  • see how much activities are costing you in pounds and pence
  • change your behaviours to save money and reduce your carbon footprint.

+

When you can see how much energy you're using, you can actively reduce unnecessary use.

+

We won't bother you anymore by coming round to read your meter. Your smart meters send us your reads remotely.

+

The In-Home Display learns the energy use
in your home based on your previous week's consumption. The light indicator allows you to
see if you're using more or less electricity
than the previous week. Use the dial
above to watch the lights change
with varying electricity use.

We'll get in touch

We'll send you a letter before we're scheduling installations in your area. There will be a handy leaflet enclosed, which will tell you exactly how to prepare for your installation.

Once your meters are installed and fully functional, our installer will give you a demonstration of your In-Home Display in action. This also allows you to ask any questions you may have.

Our installer will also give you energy saving tips.

Start to enjoy the benefits of smart

Now that your smart meters are installed, you might notice a difference in how you think about your gas and electricity use. Knowing how much each activity in your home costs could really help you lower any unnecessary use, which could help you save on your energy bills, and it helps the environment too.
