Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters. They are being installed in homes across Great Britain at no extra cost, to replace the traditional meters. Inside your home, smart meters use their own secure, wireless network using radio waves, just like mobile phones or TVs do.
Everyone in Britain will be offered a smart meter by their energy supplier by 2020 as part of a national upgrade to our energy system. You can call your energy supplier to find out when you will be able to get one. If your supplier is not installing immediately in your area, you will be put on a waiting list.
If you would like any further details, feel free to contact Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE) on 01604 765888.
