What is a smart meter?
A smart meter is an electronical meter that records the energy you use. They are self-reading and automatically send reads to your supplier, meaning no more manual meter readings and no more estimated bills. Just automated reads, accurate bills and a better view of your electricity usage.
What’s the difference between the first generation smart meter and the second generation smart meter?
First generation smart meters (SMET1) supported accurate billing however, they are not always compatible with other energy supplies. So when you switch suppliers, this type of smart meter may lose functionality. The DCC (Data Communications Company) are working closely with energy companies to migrate SMETS1 meters. When complete, many more consumers will enjoy the full benefit of their smart meter. You can learn more about this, here. Second generation smart meters (SMETS2) support accurate billing and are compatible across the industry, so you can switch suppliers with ease and keep your smart meter, without losing any functionality. We only offer these types of smart meters to our customers.
Is it free to get a smart meter?
We install smart meters free of charge to your business. Installation is between 8:00 – 17:00, Monday to Friday. However, if you require an appointment in the evenings or weekends, we will charge you for an out of hours install.
