Be smart…say goodbye to estimated readings

Smart meters track your energy usage and attempt to save you money. They’re replacing traditional meters, including prepay key meters, and all energy providers are fitting them in homes for free.

Every home is entitled to one. As well as saving aan estimated £17bn in energy bills over the next 5 years, they’re also helping to reduce carbon emisions and conserve energy. 

The devices will show you the energy you are using in real time, making it easy to identify when you’re using a lot of energy and change your behaviour accordingly.

We’ll be delivering awareness sessions to our sheltered accommodation schemes and through community events, primarily aiming to support people aged 65 and over without internet access.

We’re also on hand to give advice and support anytime you need it, though.

We can tell you all there is to know about smart meters and help you apply for one. For more information, contact us on 8000 027 2057.
