Your smart meter can give you more control over how much energy you use, providing accurate and timely information based on your actual energy consumption.
What’s a smart meter and how does it work?
Smart meters are the next generation of meter technologies and are changing the way many businesses manage their energy. They work by transmitting meter readings directly to us via a SIM card in the meter, just like a mobile phone. Smart meters mean less time sending manual meter readings and more accurate bills, so you only pay for what you use and can budget more easily.
?Â Automatic meter readings – Sent securely from your smart meter to us, so you have more time to focus on your business.
? No more estimated bills* – Because we have your latest meter readings, your bills can be based on actual energy consumption, making it easier for you to manage budgets.
?Â Manage costs – we may be able to help you find ways to save energy and lower your costs.
*On occasions, we may not be able to receive your smart meter readings due to things like poor signal strength. In these cases, we may have to send you an estimated bill or ask you to take a meter reading.
