Smart meters give you a better understanding of how you use your energy. They come with an in-home display monitor which lets you keep an eye on your energy as you're using it. This means if you're making changes to cut your electricity and/or gas use, you can see in near-real time if these changes are making a difference. Here are the advantages of having a smart meter:
- See how much energy you use in near-real time,
- Automatic and regular meter readings to make your bills more accurate,
- Review you your energy history over the last week, month or year,
- See your current tariff information.
