Smart meters mean no more meter readings

Smart Meters are the first step toward creating the UK’s smart-grid, and will pave the way for a more energy efficient future. Smart meters make is easier for us to identify the situations where we’re using a lot of energy and make changes to reduce it.

There will be no need for anyone to come and check your meter as energy consumption information is sent directly to your energy company. The data is sent via a secure national network which is solely for smart meters.

This works in the same way as other wireless systems like car remote keys or TVs, using radio waves. Though it is a wireless system, you don’t need Wi-Fi in your home for it to work. And it won’t use your Wi-Fi if you do have it.

Smart meters store data about energy usage but not any personal data about the residents of a property. This gives a better understanding of your energy usage, and will help to deal with power outages more efficiently, as well as facillitating more efficient management of Britain’s energy needs in the future.
