1. Ask your energy supplier or broker what’s on offer

You'll need to talk to your energy supplier about your eligibility.

If you rent your business space then you can ask your landlord if they plan to get one for your building. This is the case if you don’t have your own gas and/or electricity meter, and if you pay your energy bills directly to your energy supplier.

It is important to note that smart meter offerings may vary between energy suppliers, and each supplier could have different terms and conditions relating to these offerings. So, get into contact with your energy supplier for more detail.

2. Fix a time and day

If you are eligible and when your energy supplier is ready to fit your smart meter, they will call or email you to arrange a time.

3. Let your supplier in to fit the meter

A trained installer from your energy supplier will visit your premises and fit your smart meter.

4. Start taking control of your energy

After the installation process is complete, the trained installer can show you and your staff how your smart meter works and answer any questions.

You can also ask your energy supplier about access to your consumption data.

That’s it. After that, your business will be ready to enjoy the benefits of having a smart meter.

Smart energy management innovations

To help small business owners understand their energy usage and potentially save on energy bills, the government has funded smart energy management innovations.
