NHP Energy Levels! Save money with Smart Meters

Posted on Updated on

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.

Find out how you can get a Smart Meter

Important information!   Installation of a smart meter is voluntary. You are not obliged to take up any offer. All smart meter installers have to comply with the Smart Metering Installation Code of Practice (SMICop) which is a requirement of the Standard Licence Condition. SMICop covers marketing and sales, the installation itself, post installation support, and additional support for vulnerable consumers. Installations must be by appointment. The installer must provide you with notification prior to the installation visit and explicitly state that you will not be charged any up-front or one-off fee for installation. Any breach of the Code of Practice should be referred to the Consumer Service 03454 04 05 06
