What is a smart meter?

A smart meter replaces your current gas and electricity meter.

It calculates how much energy you’re using, what this costs over time and the cost every hour as you’re using it. You can see this information on your smart meter display (if you choose to have one), as well as data about your carbon emissions.

Once installed, smart meters automatically send us all this information. This helps avoid the need for estimated bills, so you’ll only pay for the energy you use.
