5 Benefits of having a Smart Meter

15th July 2017

Did you know smart meters are part of the Government’s plans to update our national energy system? – Every home and small business must have one by the end of 2020.

They give you control over your energy consumption, allowing you to manage your usage more efficiently. 

Here we explain how smart meters can benefit you;

Control

Smart meters give you an increased level of control over your energy consumption, allowing you to view, analyse and manage your usage more efficiently. According to Government estimates, smart meters help reduce electricity usage by around 2.8% and gas usage by 2% on average. This could save £15 on electricity and £12 on gas each year.

 

Accuracy

In addition to giving you more accurate usage readings, your smart meter also sends this information directly to your supplier, meaning an end to those untrustworthy estimated bills and ensuring you only pay for the energy that you use.

 

Real-time energy usage

Smart meters give you real-time information on your energy usage, allowing you to better understand it and therefore allow you to budget for the more important things in life.

 

Smart Meters are hauling Britain’s energy system into the 21st Century

The future is smart – quite literally. Smart meters are part of the effort to create a smart grid, which is part of providing low-carbon, efficient and reliable energy to Britain’s households.

 

Good for the economy

Smart meters are part of the Government’s plans to update our national energy system – every home and small business must have one by the end of 2020. They play a vital part in helping Britain towards becoming a lower carbon economy.
