Nearly two million smart meters have now been installed
across Great Britain.
Between now and 2020, everyone in England, Scotland and
Wales will have the opportunity to upgrade to a smart meter, and awareness of
the technology is increasing.
Already, one in four people know that smart meters bring an
end to estimated bills, show energy use in pounds and pence, and are fitted by
energy suppliers. And those with smart meters are more satisfied with their
energy supplier and bills when compared to consumers still using analogue
84% of customers with a smart meter would recommend having
one to others, while 79% believe their energy bills are accurate.
