Smart puts you in control
It’s easy to use more energy than you need without realising you’re doing it – smart meters can help to change that. Here are a few of the benefits of having one in your home.
See your energy usage in real time
You'll be able to use your meter's in-home display (IHD) to see exactly how much electricity and gas you're using at any time. No more waiting on your bill to arrive or having to read your meter - you'll always know where you stand!
Save money by saving energy
Because you can see how much energy you’re using on your IHD, you can use it to work out which appliances are guzzling the most. This can be a real eye-opener and help you to be smarter about how you use things around your home.
Say goodbye to estimated bills
Your smart meter sends us regular meter readings, so you don’t have to. This means we’ll never have to make an estimate and you’ll only ever pay for the energy you use.
Help to future-proof our energy network.
The UK’s energy network is an ageing beast, designed for a simpler time when we used less and wasted more. Creating a new smart grid with smart meters in every home is essential if we’re to be more efficient and match supply to demand, building a cheaper greener future for us and our children.
