What are SMART meters for business electricity and gas?
Smart meters are a substitute of your existing business gas and electricity meters. They measure energy usage in the same way as any other traditional meter, with the key difference that they communicate the information back to the supplier; hence manual readings are no longer required.
What are the benefits of having a SMART meter?
There are numerous benefits of the smart meter. We have listed the top 5 reasons below:
- See and be aware of what you’re using- make energy efficient choices to save money as well as the environment.
- Be in control of your energy costs thanks to the transparency offered by the meter.
- Accurate business bills.
- No more manual meter readings.
- Helps you cut your energy consumption.
“Smart meters are often talked about as the ‘upcoming and future of energy metering’. The reality is that they’re already well-established in the current market. A large number of businesses have already had smart meters installed by their current energy suppliers ahead of the government roll-out, which will hit large businesses by 2014 and small businesses by 2019.”
Can I still switch my business energy supplier if I have a smart meter?
YES, you can still switch your business electricity / gas supplier even if you have a smart meter.
Not all the suppliers support smart meters yet but they are happy to provide you with business tariffs based on manual reading .
