How a business gas smart meter works

 

A business electricity smart meter uses the same technology as mobile phones to send suppliers such as British Gas meter readings remotely, securely and reliably.

When we have your monthly meter readings sent automatically, we can make sure your bills are more accurate and potentially help you make energy savings.

Data logger devices

An alternative to a business gas smart meter

An alternative to a business gas smart meter is to have a data logger device fitted to your existing gas meter.

Data loggers work in the same way as a smart meter by using mobile phone technology to send suppliers your readings remotely.

You don't need to read your meter, but if you still want to, you can read it in the usual way.
