SMART METERS ARE SAFE AND RELIABLE
Smart meters are a safe addition to your home – they comply with UK and EU safety standards and are fitted by trained installers.
All smart meters meet the same safety standards, regardless of your energy supplier.In fact, when you have your smart meter installed, the trained installer will perform visual safety checks to identify signs of risk in your gas appliances. Smart meter installers have sometimes identified problems with appliances in customers’ homes, of which they may not have been aware!
Smart meters are safe - and this short video will tell you why:

How do smart meters work? Watch this short video to find out more:
The smart meter system is made up of two parts – the smart meters, which replace your traditional gas and electricity meters, and the in-home display –a portable screen that shows you how much gas and electricity you’re using and how much it’s costing you.
Both parts of the system work together to ensure you receive accurate information about your energy use; in near real time for electricity and half hourly for gas. Your smart meter securely shares only these readings automatically with your in-home display and with your energy supplier, making sure your energy bills are always accurate.
You have the option to have this information sent to your supplier monthly, daily or even half hourly. The more frequently your supplier receives this data, the better they could advise you on where you can make savings. Smart meters can also help reconnect you more efficiently should your energy be cut off unexpectedly.
