Think business. Think smart meters.
So, what is a smart meter?
Smart meters give you the chance to see how much you’re spending on your energy, this really helps if you’re trying to lower your business energy bills and implement energy efficiency measures in your workplace.
The smart meter essentially helps you track exactly how much your business uses and what it costs.Book a smart meter appointment
How does smart equal sustainable?
With smart meters comes a smarter energy grid, helping us to be more precise about the energy that everyone needs and reducing CO2 emissions by 25% in the next decade. Wonder what would happen if everyone in the UK upgraded to a smart meter? It would have the same environmental impact as planting 75 million trees. A year. That's something to think about.

Why get a smart meter?
Smart meters are great and we believe everyone should have one. They have lots of benefits, like showing you how much you’re using in near real time and helping you take control and manage how much you’re using. They also benefit the environment, by helping customers and energy companies to take action to reduce carbon emissions.
The UK Government expect every home and business to have a smart meter by the end of 2025. To meet this ambition, they are setting all Suppliers a fixed target each year for new smart installations. In 2023, for E.ON this is 873,578.
We believe everyone should have a smart meter, so we will be getting in touch with those who don’t yet have one to offer them a smart meter and support them through this smart journey. Why not get yours today?
