Smart meters
National Smart meter Rollout information open/close

As part of a drive to facilitate greater energy efficiency, the government has instigated a nationwide campaign to upgrade standard energy meters with Smart meters.

These enable two-way communication between meter and supplier, so meter readings can automatically be transmitted at a choice of frequency, including Half Hourly – making estimated bills a thing of the past.

The upgrade to Smart meters will mostly impact households and small businesses, but also some larger businesses with smaller sites. Any meter in profile class 1-4  is affected, although those that have already been upgraded with certain types of Automated Meter Reading (AMR) technology are currently exempt.

The target is to have 53 million Smart meters installed for around 30 million customers by 2020. Suppliers are being given the responsibility for Smart meter installations, and the programme is being overseen by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) with support from the industry regulator Ofgem.

Register your interest

To find out more about upgrading your own standard business meters to Smart and the benefits this can bring, please get in touch with your Client Lead or Account Manager  (for existing customers) or register your interest Register for smart meters here.

Please note that Smart meters cannot replace any existing 3-phase or current transformer (CT) meters. If the network signal is insufficient in your area, you may also not be able to upgrade to Smart. But we can advise when we assess your meters.

Energy Theft
Reporting energy meter theft open/close

Energy theft, or meter tampering, is where someone deliberately alters their gas or electricity meter so it doesn’t record their usage properly.

It’s a criminal offence which can lead to a fine and 5 years in prison, but more importantly it’s extremely dangerous. Tampering with a home’s energy supply can put the safety of people in the property and surrounding area at risk.

Not only that, but it's estimated to cost customers, suppliers and the energy industry £400,000,000 a year. We work hard alongside Ofgem to stamp it out, but we need your help.

If you think someone is stealing energy or tampering with the meter, please contact Crimestoppers.

Crimestoppers: Energy theft hotline 0800 023 2777

If your meter has been stolen, call your local Police on 101 and get a crime reference number. Then contact Customer Enquiries and arrange for a new meter to be installed.

PLEASE NOTE:
If you can smell gas or think there's a leak, turn off your supply at the meter and Call the National Gas Service Emergency Line on 0800 111 999.

And if you're worried about the safety of your or a nearby electricity supply, please contact the relevant electricity Distributor for your area.
