Think sustainable. Think smart meters.
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 smile about.
You do the booking, we'll do the rest.
We’ve installed over two million smart meters across the UK, from studio apartments to mansions, so we know what we’re doing. Put your feet up, have a cuppa and we’ll have your smart meter installed before your next Zoom call.
Ready. Set. Go smart.
We'll get in touch if we spot that a smart meter could be right for you. So look out for a text message or email and follow the links to get booked in.
We'll need to run a couple of checks to make sure there's no issues with things like poor signal availability or access problems. But once we've done that and everything looks good, we'll get an appointment booked that suits you!
We make sure that our meter fittings are COVID-safe, and our technicians will:
Call before the appointment to check it’s still safe for them to attend.
Be equipped with PPE following latest government guidelines.
Carry anti-bacterial wipes to sanitize any surface they touch before and after.
Knock on your door on arrival, then step back to maintain a 2 meter distance with anybody on site.
Conduct safety checks once the meter is fitted, they might need to access various rooms, don’t worry - they’ll still ensure they respect the 2 meter rule as they do.
To maximize social distancing, it's best that you stay in a different room during fitting.
Provide a live demo of your in-home display from a safe distance.
Call you from the van as they leave to answer any questions you may have.
Your smart meter FAQs.
What is a smart meter?
Smart meters give you the chance to see how much you’re spending on your energy at that exact moment. No more will you need to wonder how much it costs when your home looks like Blackpool Illuminations, your in-home display will give you that figure in pounds and pence. Makes turning off those lights feel even better.
How do smart meters work?
Your smart meter will use GPRS technology (think mobile phones) to send your energy use to your in-home display as well as to let us know how much you’ve been using. It means that we can get your meter readings without you having to go under the stairs to find them.
