I rent. Can I still get a smart meter?

Yes. If you pay your gas and/or electricity bills and they're addressed to you rather than your landlord, you don't need your landlord's permission to get a smart meter. However, we do recommend that you inform them first so that they are aware you’re planning to get one. If your landlord pays the bills, you should ask them to contact your supplier to arrange a smart meter installation for you.

I'm a landlord. Who decides whether to get a smart meter?

Whoever pays the gas and electricity bills can ask for a smart meter to be fitted. If you get the bills addressed to you, then you can ask for a smart meter to be installed in your tenanted property.
