A national upgrade is underway across Britain to transform our energy system.
Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters which will replace the traditional meters in our homes. Every home in England, Scotland and Wales will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier, at no extra cost, between now and 2020. Your supplier will be in touch to arrange an appointment when they are ready to install yours.
Smart meters will enable you to see exactly how much energy you're using and what it is costing in pounds and pence. They take regular readings and share these directly with your energy supplier through a secure wireless network, putting an end to estimated bills and manual meter readings.
Smart Energy GB is the independent not-for-profit campaign for the national smart meter rollout.
