What is a smart meter?
A smart meter is a gas or electricity meter that works by sending meter readings to your supplier via a SIM card in the meter, just like a mobile phone. Once you’re connected you don't need to send your supplier meter readings and you'll receive accurate bills. This means you’ll only pay for the energy you use.

Why are smart meters being installed?
Smart meters help you to control your energy use and get rid of estimated bills. It’s all part of the Government’s commitment to reduce Great Britain’s energy use by offering every home and business a smart meter. The Government wants us to install smart meters for all of our customers by 2020. You can visit www.smartenergygb.org for more information on the government target.
