Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters which will replace the traditional meters in our homes. Installed by your energy supplier, they are the simple way to keep control of your energy use.
Smart meters come with an in-home display which shows how much gas and electricity you’re using as you use it, and what it is costing in pounds and pence. They take regular readings and share these automatically with your energy supplier, meaning you can get accurate bills instead of estimates.
Between now and 2020, every household in England, Scotland and Wales will be offered a smart meter at no extra cost.
