2. Get accurate bills 

Another benefit of a Smart meter is they automate your meter readings, removing guesswork and estimated bills.*

*You’ll only receive an estimated bill if there’s a problem collecting a reading. The only time we should need to visit is for a routine safety check every couple of years.

**Unless there’s a problem collecting a reading.
