Business smart meter FAQs
A smart meter is a gas or electricity meter that works by sending its readings to energy suppliers such as British Gas via its SIM card (the same technology used by mobile phones).
The installation of smart meters is part of a commitment to reducing the UK’s energy consumption. Business smart meters help you to control your energy use and get rid of estimated bills.
The Government wants us to install smart meters for all of our customers by 2020.
We’ve signed up to the Smart Metering Installation Code of Practice (SMICoP).
Once you’re connected you won’t have to send us meter readings anymore. Your bills will also be more accurate – with no more estimation, you’ll only be charged for the energy you’ve used.
Fill out our get a smart meter form to let us know you’d like to upgrade. We’ll then get in touch to book an appointment that suits you.
