Every installation is carried out by one of our qualified installers.
What to expect on the day of your smart meter installation
We ask you to check that the installer will be able to easily access your meters and you are on site for the appointment.
Our installer will replace your current meter. It takes about an hour to remove your existing meter and install a smart meter, and your supply will need to be switched off for around 30 minutes
Our installers try to install your new smart meter with as little disruption to you as possible.
Here's what will happen on the day:
Our installers will wear appropriate PPE throughout your installation.
On the day of your appointment, the installer will call you when they’re on their way so you’ll know when to expect them.
When our installer arrives at your business, they'll always show you their ID.
Before the installation they'll have a look at the area around the meter to make sure it's safe.
Your electricity supply will have to be switched off for about 30 minutes.
We follow the Smart Metering Installation Code of Practice (an Ofgem-approved code of practice) to make sure you receive unbeatable service throughout the whole installation process.
