Get Ready for Smart Meters
17th Oct, 2016
We are working with our partners in the ACRE Network and Smart Energy GB to raise awareness of the smart meter rollout. We’re promoting smart meters to off mains gas residents in Shropshire county.
Smart meters and the rollout
Smart meters will replace the traditional meters we currently have in our homes and every home in Great Britain will be offered on at no extra cost by 2020. Smart meters take regular meter readings and share these wirelessly, through a secure network, with your energy supplier. You don’t need Wi-Fi in your home for it to work and it won’t use your Wi-Fi if you have it, and even rural locations will be covered by the network which covers 99.25 per cent of Great Britain.
What are the benefits of installing a smart meter?
Smart meters can only be installed by energy suppliers in a pre-arranged appointment and you will not be charged for installation. When you are eligible depends on many factors, such as the age of your existing meter and the type of housing you live in.
