Did you know that all households in England, Scotland, and Wales are to be offered a smart meter by the end of 2020.
All though it is not obligatory, having a smart meter means the end of estimated bills, no more having to read the meter or trying to work out your bill and it also means nobody has to come into your home for meter readings.
With your smart meter, you’ll also get an easy-to-understand portable display that shows you exactly what you’re spending in pounds and pence and in near real time which can help you cut costs and save money.
This means you can also work out which appliances are guzzling the most energy or show the kids the difference it can make when they remember to turn the lights off.
Once you have a smart meter, you’ll only get accurate bills from your energy supplier, just as you do with your phone bill.
If you haven’t already! Be sure to sign up below and receive free energy saving tips which could save you money, entry into our prize draws to win energy saving goodies as well as the chance to take part in free DIY or Family Cooking sessions.

This 2 valve Jawa engine bike specially built for the sport has 28mm spikes in the tyres (350 in total) to ensure a grip on the ice.
