BENEFITS FOR YOU
Smart meters help to make better sense of the energy you use so you can lower your consumption and your bills. And there’s more....
SEE WHAT YOU ARE SPENDING
When you get a smart meter you’ll start to see your energy differently. They enable you to monitor what you are using – and wasting – in near real time. You can identify the gadgets that guzzle power on your In-Home Display’s (IHD) traffic light system. Switching all your appliances on would move the dial to red, moving back into amber as some are switched off, through to green when everything is off.
GOOD ENERGY HABITS
It will encourage everyone in your household to adopt good energy habits. You can set energy saving goals and budgets because the IHD has an area that shows what you’re using in pounds and pence. You can even set an hourly rate that as a household you’re happy with, and your IHD will help you stick to that.
Find out how people are using their smart meters to save energy every day.
NO MORE MANUAL READINGS
Manual readings will become a thing of the past as smart meters are self-reading. Your meter will send all the details of your energy usage directly to your supplier.
WORKS WITH PREPAY
If you have a pre-pay meter you can simply top up on your mobile and your IHD will display when you’re nearly out of credit. There’s also an emergency credit button you can press if you need a bit of extra time before you are able to top up, say if you are waiting for funds to clear.
