Smart meters are the next generation of gas and electricity meters. SureMountain install smart meters with their accompanying in-property displays, to help you keep track of the energy you use in your home or commercial property. The benefit of a smart meter is to remove the requirements for meter readings.
Useful information is provided by a smart meter regarding your energy use, so these devices can help you to make informed decisions to manage your energy budget. There are stringent plans in place to ensure that every home and business has a smart meter for electricity and gas by the end of 2020.
Smart meters measure the total energy used in the same way as a traditional meter, but they can also tell you when you have used it and how much it costs.
Additionally, they have a communication capability that allows data from your property to be read remotely by your energy supplier.
Once your smart meter is installed, you will be able to see instantly when you’re using the most energy – and how much it costs, whatever display method you choose. This means you can adapt your energy use in line with the smart meter information and cut down on waste to provide long-term carbon and financial savings.
Smart meters will allow households and businesses to make informed decisions based on accurate and real-time cost information. Currently many of us receive estimated bills after the energy has been used, making it difficult to reconcile costs with usage.
