The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has published statistics for smart meter installations from July to September 2017.
Claire Maugham, Director of Policy and Communications at Smart Energy GB, said:
“More than 8.6 million smart meters have now been installed across Great Britain, transforming the experience of buying and using gas and electricity for millions of people.
“Our research shows that eight in ten people who have upgraded to a smart meter would recommend them to their family and friends. Smart meters bring an end to estimated bills and show you, in pounds and pence, exactly how much gas and electricity you are using.
“There’s no reason to wait – contact your energy supplier today about your smart meter installation.”
About Smart Energy GB
Smart Energy GB is the voice of the smart meter rollout. It’s our task to help everyone in Great Britain understand smart meters, the national rollout and how to use their new meters to get their gas and electricity under control. Our national campaign is reaching households and microbusinesses in England, Scotland and Wales.
About smart meters and the rollout
Smart meters replace the traditional meters we currently have in our homes. They enable accurate bills, near real time information on energy use in pounds and pence, and greater control over the way we buy and use energy. The smart meter rollout is an essential technology upgrade, unprecedented in its scale, to improve Great Britain’s energy infrastructure.
There are already 8.6 million smart meters installed in homes and microbusinesses, and every household in England, Scotland and Wales will be offered one at no additional cost. Contact your energy supplier today about installing your smart meter.
