All energy suppliers must offer their customers smart meters before the end of 2020.
Smart meters have a screen that tells you how much gas and electricity you’re using in real time, so there are no unexpected costs and you can keep an eye on what you’re spending.
They automatically take readings for your energy supplier too, to save you both time and hassle.
If you want to get a smart meter, you should speak to your energy supplier, who will send an engineer out to install one at no cost to you.
