An electricity smart meter uses the same technology as a mobile phone to send us your meter readings automatically, securely and reliably.
Take control of your business energy costs - upgrade to a smart meter to make sure you only ever pay for the energy you've used.
By upgrading to a smart meter you can ensure accurate meter readings so that you only ever pay for the energy you've used.
Your smart meter can be installed in the place of your current electricity meter. Once installed it transmits your meter readings directly to us via a SIM card in the meter, just like a mobile phone.
We'll regularly collect your readings via a secure encrypted service and as soon as we've set up your new smart meter on our billing systems you'll receive accurate bills, based on your actual electricity usage. You'll have better control over your business energy costs because you'll only ever pay for what you've used.
It's straightforward to upgrade to a smart meter. Your old meter will be upgraded by one of our expert installers at a time that's convenient for your business. You can choose a two-hour slot for install from Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm.
The installation will take a minimum of an hour and we'll try to keep any disruption to a minimum. All you need to do is make sure any sensitive equipment like alarms, telephony systems and lighting is switched off and we'll then take care of the rest.
We'll take your final meter readings from your old meter and start the process of setting up your new smart meter on our billing systems. If your next bill is due during this time it may not show your smart meter readings straight away. However, once your meter is set up in our billing system you will benefit from accurate, smart bills and no more estimates.**
With a smart meter, taking meter readings will soon be a thing of the past because your meter readings are sent to us directly. And with no need to arrange meter readings or query estimated bills, you'll have more time to take care of your business.
Our smart meter installation engineers have industry-leading experience in installing smart meters for all types of business. Watch the video to see how.
** For reasons outside of our control for example due to poor signal strength, we may still have to estimate some of your bills or take a further meter reading.
