Responding to the Mail on Sunday story on smart meter compatibility with solar panels, Robert Cheesewright, Director of Corporate Affairs at Smart Energy GB, said:
"Smart meters have been specifically designed to work with solar panels. Your in-home display will show how much energy you are buying from your supplier. In the future, your in-home display may also be able to reflect the energy you're generating yourself.
"Any customers with solar panels or other forms of micro-generation systems who want to find out more about getting a smart meter should contact their energy supplier."
