What are Smart Meters?

Smart Meters are the next generation of technology to be used for the metering of electricity and gas utilities.


The UK government has authorised plans to install Smart Meters in over 26 million homes and businesses over the next 10 years.


They will bring about the end of estimated bills and meter readings, and provide consumers and energy suppliers with automatic meter readings and accurate information on the amount of electricity and gas being used.  This is intended to promote energy saving through closer monitoring of energy usage.

Smart meters will give customers options on how much energy they use and enable future Microgeneration systems to sell energy back to the supplier.  Two-way communication systems will send energy suppliers accurate real-time information on energy use in the home.
