A Smart meter is a clever new gas or electricity meter that automatically sends meter readings to us.
That means no more torch lit meter readings, no more estimated bills* and a much better chance of saving money on your energy – good news all round.

A Smart meter records the energy you use and sends it to us and to a handheld Smart energy display in your home. Put your Smart energy display somewhere where you can keep an eye on it and it’ll give you an idea of what you’re paying for your energy and, hopefully, help you see where you could save money.
