Britain is getting smarter

29 Oct 2015

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 meters. 

84% of customers with a smart meter would recommend having one to others, while 79% believe their energy bills are accurate.
